Happy News!

Hello everyone,

Many of us have had some rough and hard times lately. So I would ask everyone to share a happy story, or some good news. However small the achievement. Or perhaps you have something or someone you are grateful to. I would love to hear...

I will start it off...after 18 months of learning to drive, with bilateral foot surgery somewhere in the middle I have my second test in a few weeks. It's been such a struggle to learn when I've been feeling so bad, but lets hope the second attempt will do it for me! :)

Will keep all my fingers and toes crossed for you Zosie........ says Foggy from a heap on he floor.

My achievement would be the felted poppy which I made earlier in the week, and found that I could actually make something which looks like I wanted it to :-) :-)

What a good idea Zosie, to hear people's achievements, whether big or small, it's still achievement :-)

Hey everyone, thanks for sharing. Perhaps we can make this a regular thing :)

I have a lot of sickness and discomfort at the moment and have had a few panic attacks recently, which I've never suffered with before. Perhaps it sounds silly to be so appreciative but now more than ever I'm noticing and appreciating all the good thins and people I have around me. I feel blessed to have what I do and for friends like you on this site xoxo

Good luck on your driving test... Sending positive vibes to you!

I only passed my driving test two years ago after deciding to learn to drive pretty late :)

Due to the pain in my arms and shoulders I now drive an automatic which is great... Let us know how you get on! Xoxo

Thanks guys :D I knew you would all understand. I never never thought I would get to a happy place like this in my life, and now I'm organising a wedding. I feel so lucky

I saw a study recently that said (basically) that the secret to happiness is not having the perfect life / having everything you ever wanted - it is all down to feeling grateful. That resonated with me because I'm a worrier and when something good happened I would say to myself "that's good, but..." I would worry about all the bad things coming and railing against the injustices and unfairness of being so ill. Now I try to be conscious of the good things, even the tiny things and just say a little silent thank you and be aware of all the positives. It seems to be helping too.

I think we need to keep up with the good news stories to balance out all the not so good & downright awful things in our lives. Well done everyone, I know how hard you are working for the little things, you are all doing so well. Hugs Xxxxx
