I once was a fairly prolific thnx4 contributor … it was part of my regular weekly practice I called “Mental Health Friday” where I reflected on life and reviewed my own personal gratitude journals from years past.

I’ve said it here before, and I’ll say it again, that all you dear souls that share your moments of gratitude here have helped me so much! I’ve learned that one of the tenants of self-compassion is the realization and understanding that “other people feel this way.” It is so true, and although we all certainly have different life arcs, we all share in the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows of being human. Nothing causes this to be so true to me than the thnx4 community.

For those who post here, know that I am here cheering your victories and empathically sharing in your inevitable life challenges. I love you.

My quondam boss called me, out of the blue, today. We had a fun, extended chat, and it was great to hear that at his age (86) he is still active and enjoying many life activities.
In my new rural hometown, I’m starved for personal connections. This one was nice. Also, our friendship is now so much different and more positive than the employer/employee one we had for 28 years before we both retired. It is wonderful to feel love for another human soul.

Grateful for a moment of satisfaction this morning when applying something I’d recently learned to the reading skills I want to improve. Moreover, I recognized that I was having a positive experience and took time to “take it in” using the HEAL technique I’d learned many years ago from the book “Hardwiring Happiness.” I’d recently been bemoaning that I hadn’t been cognizant of many positive experiences, no matter how small or fleeting, lately, so this was most welcome.
This most definitely lifted my mood somewhat.

The “old guys” at the marina where my son works have completely adopted him. They all banter, tease, cajole and function as a loving cranky bunch. Today they all worked on rescuing Walker from his non-functioning, side of the road car breakdown and taught him how to make the repairs. Old guys!
My son has an extra set of friends who have turned into his family. What’s even better is that these gentlemen chose our boy independent of anyone else’s influence.

Doug, you are always my light. When I need guidance, direction, a swift kick in the buns, to be held, you are always the one I want. Your notes, listening, tidying light up my days 💓
Peace, fulfillment

My boss gave me an award for doing some of her work while she was on vacation.
It was very nice and thoughtful of her. It made me feel appreciated.

My daughter came this weekend, and we spent an amazing Saturday afternoon chatting about so many important things. Usually, we do not spend time talking about life, but this time was different, so she made my weekend!
My children are the leitmotiv of the "movie" of my life, but they are grown ups with the common issues and stress of any other adult, so when they take the time to sit down with me and talk; it means that for a couple of hours they forget their problems, stress, etc, and dedicate time to what is very important in life: family ties.
