I stopped by my sister's place on a whim because I wanted to go through this activity book with my nephew and I ended up hanging out with him before dinner. This preoccupied him and we had a good time. Later my sister sent me a text to thank me for playing with him while she was cooking where she would usually burn her food because she would be watching him.
This made me feel really good and appreciated. I'm thinking of making this into a regular thing!

Grateful to live in this age where scientific understanding enables us to be even more gobsmacked by the wonders of life, the universe and everything. Galaxies! Wasn't that long ago in the state of human knowledge it was thought the Milky Way Galaxy alone comprised the entire universe ... now it is thought there could be 200 million to 2 trillion of them! And further back in history there was a time when it was completely unknown what stars really were, what they were made of, how far away they were, and that was just the ones that could be seen. Now it is thought there may be on the order of 10^24 stars in the universe ... more than the number of grains of sand on the entire Earth!
Grateful to be gobsmacked and also to envision a time many years hence that will make our current comprehension appear naive.

I have the very BEST co-workers…WOW, thank you both very much for getting me a milkshake and freezing it for me(when i couldn't be a work on milkshake day). Also thank you for the text messages and good vibes, during my daughter’s unfortunate event. I really appreciated your thoughtfulness! Thank you to my supervisor for allowing me to have that time off.
This made me feel cared about and i felt the love while i was consuming that yummy milkshake.

I hadn’t packed my coffee.
I’m moving over the next couple of days and am a bit tired. Seeing that I hadn’t packed the coffee was a nice surprise from past me.

I received my tax returns.
I was able to completely pay off my outstanding balance on my credit card and put the rest of the money towards a down payment on a condo. I am really happy to be in a financial position where I am able to consider buying instead of renting, and relieved to have the stress of debts gone.

My friend is taking off work the next two days to help us move into our new home.
I have much less stress about the moving process, and he is incredibly motivating.

I discovered a podcast called Oligies. A specific episode on Thanatology has me wanting to commit to making positive changes in how I live my life.
It reminded me that end of life regret is something I have control of. Therefore, I can approach my end of life experience with fulfillment and gratitude rather than fear and regret.

I'm starting 3 weeks at kickboxing and my body is so sore. I feel so grateful for this feeling and the progress I've made this far.
My body is my home and I think I'm finally appreciating her, making her strong.

I am grateful to this platform for teaching me the habit of starting the day with counting my blessings. I have learned that whatever the day brings there are always plenty of things to be grateful for, and appreciating that makes me instantly happier.

Today I met someone new and we had very productive conversations
This was very reinvigorating and made me excited to discuss some topics, also reminded me how nice is to share connections with people even if we don't know them

The smell of the lilacs on my walk this morning was so sudden so refreshing and so full of childhood memories that I felt like I got a huge boost of energy.

Just felt grateful to be driving along with my youngest son listening to classic songs and tapping our feet and enjoying each others company without having to say anything.

Ocean Park, WA - USA: Thankful to have received a heartfelt and positive response to a comment I'd made on an Instagram post where the poster seemed still to be struggling with a past and painful life event.
To feel accepted, and honored, by a stranger who received my words of comfort means a lot to this soul who has often questioned how he comes off to others.

I am so excited about the near completion of a stunningly beautiful deck in our backyard. We've been talking about it for 4 years and now it's a reality. Yay!
It will substantially increase our use and enjoyment of our backyard, and expand our potential entertainment space, even if we are only entertaining ourselves and our dog (who really is excited by it, btw!)
