I am grateful for many things. For those who know/knew me. I tend to wear much on my sleeve. I struggle with some decisions, especially with decisions that affect others that I respect and care for.

So chief among the things I am thankful for is the clarity of mind that I can achieve. This by itself was a blessing, but the support I have from my wife and partner, allows even daunting decisions easily tallied, then dealt with.

A wise friend once told me, that you are only responsible to yourself. I have found that wisdom incomplete. You are responsible to yourself and your people, whomever you choose them to be. As you orbit them, and they orbit you.

Being grateful
We should give thanks in all things.
And I guess it's true what we see in others is what is inside of ourselves if we see only the badd we always find the bad and what's wrong in everything around us.
Or if we are consumed with light and love all we see is beauty in things around us the good in people and all the things we're thankful for.


It reminds me of something I read a long time ago about The Vikings who were in a very small boat in the middle of the ocean in a great storm and waves
We're about to kill them and instead of praying to save their lives they only prayed that the Lord would break the clouds just a little bit so they could steer their course by the stars.

I am grateful for everyone here that checks up on me and looks out for me when my anxiety is bad, and for everyone that is understanding when I have to cancel a JP session or put something off until the next week. It makes it a lot easier to cope.

I am thankful that I am still able to post here. I am grateful I am still welcome after taking a long hiatus. I am grateful for the chance to help people even when that means dealing with horrifying things.

I'm grateful for having the first proper good day in ages... without anxiety, without worry... just a day in my garden, out in the sun, enjoying myself. I'm also grateful that my good mood means I've been able to start watching The Falcon and The Winter Solider, as anxiety usually makes me watch stuff I've already seen.
