Weekly Gratitude 2020 45/52

2020 gratitude

Happy Sunday everyone! Even though it’s November, it’s a pretty chilly Sunday here in Sydney. But, thankfully, it’s not raining. I’m a bit emotional today after the news of Trump being ousted. I didn’t think it would affect me so much but turns out, I’d been holding on to a lot of anxiety about it. Anyway, without further ado, here are things I’m grateful for from 1st November to 7th November 2020:

Lovely coastal walk on Sunday with good company despite the rainy weather

Checking out a new brewery at lunch time on the same Sunday

Good conversations with bookstagrammers about some controversial opinions I had about a much-loved book

Having a client feel empowered to finish counselling and thank me for my guidance on their journey. I teared up after that

Having another client tear up a bit when I mentioned about the change in my role but also thanking me for my support

The work I do – I feel so privileged and humbled to be let into someone’s life, to share their vulnerable moments and their darkest fears

People who are consistent, communicative and respectful

Starting to supervise clinicians again and feeling a sense of purpose

The lovely baristas at my local cafe always up for a chat and smile

Leg pressing 163 kgs this week {3 sets of 30 reps}

Watching the Sydney Sixers beat Hobart Hurricane in a thrilling game. Ash Gardner was fantastic!

Chats with friends during the week about some anxieties that cropped up for us all in different ways

It’s been a decent week. I have finished things from my old role and am looking forward to immersing myself completely in the new role from tomorrow.

How has your week been?

Do share!

    I’d missed the news about your new role, but saw you mention it somewhere else so will have to re-read some posts. I’m very hit and miss with reading blogs (and blogging!!!) nowadays. And I’m trying to remind myself that’s okay.

    I’m glad you’ve had some nice results (?!) professionally and that your work has been appreciated.

    And I think I know which book you mean and it’s certainly been divisive. There was another thing on Twitter about it over the weekend….

    All the best to you in your new role and work. What I love about your work is the impact it has on people. Something that I would like to do. Not sure how but I would 🙂
    Wishing you anxiety free days and good vibes all the coming weeks and months, Sanch!

    It’s always good to hear how your week has been. You sound like things are going well and i wish you all the best in your new role. I’ve had a good week too topped off with a weekend at the coast with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Always good to see the sea! #lifethisweek

    Which book didn’t you like? Very curious. That’s usually me. I don’t understand half the best sellers and then books I love, everyone hates…The problem with book clubs, they often only work for one kind of reader.

      The Morbids by Ewa Ramsey. It got positive reviews on Bookstagram but I didn’t like it. It was meant to be about anxiety – and death anxiety in particular- but it annoyed me so much as a professional in the field. It kinda had the trope of male saviour ?

    I was so relieved when they called the election – I was literally having sleepless nights. The work you do for/with your clients for many will literally be life-changing, for those lives that you touch, you’re literally a gift! Pleased new job is going well. Look forward to catching up in person soon and hearing all about it 🙂

    The Morbids is going to my local Op Shop. I probably need to read your review of AOSS as both B and I are somewhat disappointed by our friend’s latest book. Did he try too hard?

    Glad you are in a busy but stable work situation now. Well done.

    Take care my friend.

    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek. Next week the optional prompt is 46/51 Exams. 16.11.2020 Hope to see you then! Denyse.
