What are you grateful for?

My symptoms (probably due to coming off a med) is getting a little continuously better.

I’ve planned out a fun day for Sunday with family and friends.

The things that are getting me down will probably work out and they could be worse.

That I still feel very happy and peaceful in the mornings (I get depressed at night now like I used to long ago..after my brother took his life ...) and now come to think of it he died around Easter time so I guess I probably figured that out... I’ll talk to my therapist about it today. *sigh

But life is a gift life is a blessing life is beauty

Love you all soooooo! ❤️

Yaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😆

Starlight, good to hear you have an activity to look forward to with friends and family on Sunday. It sounds like you are feeling better by what you wrote, "The things that are getting me down will probably work out and they could be worse." It can be challenging to be positive when we are dealing with depression/anxiety and other conditions.I am thankful that I am still able to get something necessary things done even though I am feeling lonely and isolated. God does not give up on me and is patient with me, so I am focusing on doing the same for myself. I am also thankful for: great physical health and that I can bicycle up steep hills and ride many miles at age 63, a roof over my head and monthly pension $'s, that I am alive. I am looking forward to dinner and karaoke with some friends tonight.

Awesome especially impressive to me is the biking because I’ve always loved sports and nature (used to mountain bike with my husband) yeah I agree God doesn’t give up on us. Thanks for that reminder. Sometimes I feel like He should but of course that’s depression talking not my true belief in my soul. Enjoy dinner and karaoke tonight!!!!!!!

Thanks for the reply. You would enjoy mountain biking here in Colorado Springs. In addition to many paved trails, there are many dirt trails where one can enjoying being in nature. There are plenty of hills and mountains to ride up that can get one in great shape. Additionally, living at 6,000 feet above sea level, adds to getting in shape.

Pretty much grateful just to be alive. So many times I've come uncomfortably close to not being that. So every day is a miracle & a gift. Sometimes the gift is blah sometimes its amazing. But it is always a gift.

That’s true so true I’m trying to feel that way. ❤️

I’m grateful to be doing better than I was at this time last year. I’m grateful that I’m almost done my bachelors degree. I’m grateful for my parents and my sister. I’m grateful for my animals. And I’m grateful for all of you for the support that I need.
