Gratitude

Hi
I am aware at the moment of how helpful gratitude is in me keeping well
🙂 It helps me realise what I HAVE, as opposed to what I don’
🙂 It helps me realise the progress I’ve made- a week ago I was in a really bad space, but at present am not in that space
🙂 My mood depends very much how I interpret things from one day/hour to the next
🙂 It is counter-intuitive, yet doubly important when I’m struggling with a lot
🙂 I can easily take things for granted- my health, home, job, 12 step meetings
Thanks for listening 🙂

It does make a difference…!

It does make a difference…!

I learnt a lesson this morning. I found a quieter path that gets me up the hill to work.

Part of my learning at the moment is that it DOES make a difference who I am with as to how relaxed and sociable I feel

This seems obvious, perhaps. But I tend to expect myself to feel equally relaxed with whoever I’m with.

  • I label myself as ‘shy’, but am not shy or quiet when:
  • I am with people I trust
  • When I am with people I am close to
  • When I am in a peaceful environment
  • When I am not too tired, hungry etc

This helps me a lot to share. I want to trust these insights:

  • It is OK to not be very chatty in some environments.
  • I have social strengths and social liabilities
  • Who I am is OK, and valuable, however much I chat

Your life — with all its complications and joys — is a priceless gift. Appreciating this, ‘what’s wrong’ becomes far less pressing.
