Gratitude Chronicles #3

So for my wonderful followers, I have been sick – as you may know from my previous post of course.

But I felt that I should write up my gratitude challenge for today – And hopefully in turn encourage  you to think of what you are grateful for today.

5 Things I am grateful for today:

1 – I can be thankful for my road to recovery. Almost a week of being sick, just today  I have been perking up. Phew!

2 – I had an amazing meeting today with two lovely ladies, to discuss an exhibition I can help to provide. focussing on Anti-bullying and ending passive/physical violence. I am grateful that it went well, and that I had an opportunity to share my passion for these issues.

3 – Super grateful for a phone conversation from a buddhist friend J. So lovely to have a catch up! and talk her ear off – Whoops!  Love deepening my connections, and community.

4 – Grateful to have a close friend visiting, for a catch up and disruption of the grind.

5 – Grateful for a delicious kai (food) this evening.


Ok those got weaker, but I’m distracted and being anti-social to appease you.

What are YOU grateful for today?
