I suppose that applies to the practice of being grateful/thankful as well.
Some time ago, I did an "experiment", where I wrote down three things I was thankful for that day. To be honest, I don't remember much of that day, but I think it won't hurt to do a repeat of that exercise. After all, if we don't consciously do things, then it could be easy to forget about the things we are thankful for.
Confession: I am rather stumped. I've been sitting here for a while trying to think of what to write.
My dad's out of the hospital, and he seems fine.
The other day, my dad was admitted to the hospital because he was feeling dizzy. Knowing how he shuns doctors and hospitals, the fact that he allowed himself to be checked meant he was really not feeling well. Thank goodness, because he only stayed two nights, and it seems it was just a case of vertigo. All blood tests are normal.
All the bills are paid for the month.
I hate dealing with finances, and given the state that my finances are in, it's understandable. (Or maybe that's why I am where I am.) Still, I am thankful that all the bills are paid for the month. There's food in the fridge. I've restocked on meds. I'm not destitute.
Is it obvious that I am struggling here? Of course, we're all thankful that it's Friday. This week has been another rather stressful one, and Fridays are always very busy for me. With my brain going on overdrive, things are even more hectic. Then again, recently, I've made it a point to make the weekends practically work-free, so yeah, I am thankful it's Friday.
What are you thankful for today?
