Weekly Gratitude 2018 41/52


Welcome to another Sunday everyone! Hope you have had a good week. Mine started off on a bit of a downer but seems to have improved. I fell sick last Sunday and it brought to front some demons I’d probably been avoiding and I was in a bit of a funk for a lot of Sunday and a few days after. But, if there’s one thing I know, it’s to deal with things head-on. Which is what I’m doing. And one of those things is to reflect daily on things I’m grateful for; to look for the silver linings amidst the darkness. Without further ado, here are things I’m grateful for from 7th October 2018 to 13th October 2018.

Slow mornings {I didn’t go to the gym this week but tried to not feel guilty and instead look at it as a time to self-care in a different way}

A new challenge two days a week in a different role – it was interesting to learn how differently things work in adult inpatient settings

Friends who check-in on me

Friends who read things, think about me and send it to me

Spending an entire morning reading

Being productive at work

Friday night with my friend NG watching Deadpool 2 and eating takeaway

Decluttering my study – I got rid of so much paperwork from years ago!

Watching Birds of Tokyo perform live and getting to stand right up the front again. It helps me look at and obsess over Kenny <3 Seriously, though, they are good {even if Karnivool is better}

Catching up with some Sydney friends after the gig and staying over at my friend JR‘s place to avoid driving in the rain

So yeah, although I nursed a sore throat for most of the week, struggled to get to the gym, and had some sleepless nights thanks to my brain, there was still a lot to be grateful for. It’s these things I need to remember in dark times which can be so very hard.

How was your week?

Do share!

    I love reading these gratitude posts of yours every Sunday night.

    I am glad to hear the health is getting better, and you took time to indulge in self-care, even when you couldn’t make it to the gym. And spending an entire morning reading sounds blissful – I really need to do that sometime – guilt free.

    Wishing you a great week ahead!

    Love the fact that you get to go for so many musical gigs – you sure do live in one hell of a rocking place 🙂

    Hope you feel better soon. Better to take time off and get better than keep going and get worse

    Gosh! How do you manage to feel grateful everyday ? I just about have time to record what I’ve done for the day and then feel it is so ordinary and humdrum…. But perhaps it is better than being dramatic and horrid….

    Hope you are better now. Sore throat can be very painful and takes it own time to go away. Self care included being kind with oneself. And glad you took time to take rest.
