Gratitude

Weekly Gratitude 2021 38/52

Happy Sunday, lovely readers! It’s the end of a long weekend for me – I’ve had Thursday and Friday off work too. Somehow though, I don’t feel recharged. I think that’s because of some work decisions that are currently overwhelming me. But hopefully, I’ll sort those out soon. Anyway, it’s been a gorgeous day today but surprisingly, I didn’t go to the beach. That’s because it was also the first picnic weekend and I figured I was better off going for walks locally than trying to find parking and space at the beach. Anyway, without further ado, here are all things I’m grateful for from 12th September to 18th September 2021:

A glorious Sunday morning at the beach – I got to the beach early and stayed for three hours, reading and swimming {outdoor recreation has been allowed where I live}

Training with my friend three mornings a week and personal training twice this week – all outdoors

Good supervision session with my supervisor

A good chat with my manager about me possibly cutting down to four days in the future if I want to do more private work

Short work week and finishing off on Wednesday

The view from the balcony especially as the days get warmer and longer

Week 38

Lovely walk in the neighbourhood on Thursday evening

Friday coffee catch up and walk with Sammie and Teddy

Afternoon walks with another friend on Friday

Takeaway pizza after what seems like a long time

Finding out I won second place for my personal essay at the YeahWrite Nonfiction Super Challenge

Long Saturday night chats over FaceTime with my friend CN

It’s been a decent week despite the anxiety and overwhelm hanging over my head. But I hope, this too shall pass.

How was your week?

Do share!

    Well done on your writing award Sanch! The weather looks so lovely up there I’d be out and about as much as possible too! Have a lovely week ahead. #lifethisweek

    Seems like a good time of year to make the most of the balcony and views!

    I am so hoping you are OK. Friday tomorrow and some time out or off.

    Thank you for sharing your post as part of Monday’s Life This Week. I do enjoy seeing my blogging friends pop in with a post to share and a comment too. Always appreciated. Next week, the optional prompt is View. I hope to see you there too. Take care, Denyse.
