Weekly Gratitude 2019 17/52

2019 weekly gratitude

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s a slightly cooler Sunday here but still gorgeous because the sun is out. I’ve been relaxing in the backyard with the cats in the sunshine because it’s not really beach weather. This past week has been a short week due to public holidays and one of those strange ones where you forget what day it is. But it’s back to the grind from tomorrow and no public holidays until June. For now, though, it’s time to look back at all that I’m grateful for from 21st April to 27th April 2019.

Spending time at the beach on all the public holidays – Sunday, Monday and Thursday – so amazing!

Easter Sunday dinner at my friend KH‘s with her, her boyfriend and our other friend KP

Writing on Sunday in my favourite cafe

A hike with my friend LS on Monday followed by beach and brunch

Reasonably quiet days at work {or as I think of it – the calm before the storm!}

Talking on the phone with a friend I went to undergrad with after so many years!

Catching up with my friend JK on Thursday

Really good personal training session on Friday morning

Writing poetry

Reading at the beach and in the sunshine in my backyard

A client thanking me as I finished off with them and saying they wouldn’t have gotten to a settled state without my support – I continue to feel I don’t do much but then words like these make my heart full

Being able to bring a smile to a friend’s face at the end of a difficult week for them

Good writing group and some lovely feedback

Watching live music – I went to see Russian Circles mainly and while they were good despite some technical issues, I was actually blown away by the support act We Lost the Sea and the other support act Tangled thoughts of leaving. There were a couple of songs by We Lost the Sea that hit me deeply and I had tears running down my cheeks. These are all instrumental bands so it had nothing to do with lyrics but rather, the music itself

For some reason, I’ve been in a slight funk this week but as I was writing this post, I just realised that a lot has happened to be grateful for. It’s weird how you forget when you go through the motions of daily life. That’s been my week.

How was yours?

Do share!

    Being able to bring a smile to the face of a friend having a hard time is the best feeling! Well done 🙂 Yes it’s good sometimes to take stock of what we’re grateful for and we see that we’ve had far more happen than we thought! #lifethisweek

    Lovely memories Sanch. How each day is different from the other, right? One day we have lovely moments while the other makes us forget about good things! I love your weekly gratitude posts, but I failed writing about this in my own blog. ? Still, weekly inspiration is lovely to write.

    I read someone said we had 3 long weekends in a row – that was how it felt for them. I read this catch up with your thoughts seemed well-balanced. The highs, the lows and all in between seem to be par for the course for us humans.

    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek. Next week’s optional prompt is Taking Stock 18/51. Hope you can join in and link up. Denyse.
