Default What are you grateful for today?

I find that this helps in even difficult times, lift my spirits, even if just a little. What are you grateful for today?

1. It's sunny out today
2. I don't have to worry about food or going hungry.
3. The plants in my room seem to be doing pretty well. They're all green and growing. and pretty.
4. Water
5. I went for a nice walk today.

An e-mail from my one & only friend in the world... a gentleman who lives in the U.K. We've never met. But we're been corresponding over the internet for several years now.

I am grateful for my health, I feel good and lovely. For my sister, we get along very well and she is an amazing person. I feel lucky to have her. And for this great day in general, I talked to a guy working at the train station while asking for information, he asked for my number. I agreed to give it to him if it's just for friendship and nothing romantic.

I'm grateful to have the means to take care of the needs that I can take care of and to also have others in my life who help me with the things that I need assistance with. I'm also thankful for those in my life who are kind to me, especially when they value me as a person, despite my flaws and limitations. I'm grateful for this site (especially the blogs, the news articles, the people who post to these forums, and the opportunity to interact with others here), and I'm thankful to God for giving us what we have here on this planet and for the fact that those who lived here on Earth for most of our human history took good care of the planet.

Today l did not feel really great, I felt anxious (I had some bad memories that I am trying to let go of which came coming back and this brought with it all the sadness and despair I felt when I was working with these awful people. Nevertheless I am grateful to be alive and to keep my head up, IAM grateful for meditation because it helps me to put aside during a moment my hurt feelings and I am grateful for journaling which helps me put on paper my feelings so that I can have a better understanding of my emotions. I am grateful for god, even though I feel painfully lonely sometimes I know I have him to care for me and that love is inside and not outside of myself.
I am also thankful for starrysky for creating this thread ��

1. I read a good article on how to get better at taking criticism. It's something I want for myself. Here's the article if anyone's interested. How Can I Learn to Take Criticism Without Taking It Personally?

2. Chubby Hubby ice cream by Ben and Jerry's.

3. I hung out with my friend today and it was really nice.

4. Psych Central and all the people here. It's a good place.

5. My family.
