Gratitude List (March 25, 2022) #TToT

It’s the last weekend of March. I didn’t realize it until I read it in this week’s Ten Things of Thankful. Yay, I’m joining in again with a gratitude post! Here goes.

1. I am grateful for daylight until nearly 7PM in the evening. Make that 8PM come this Sunday, as we’re entering daylight saving time. Yay!

2. I am grateful for a field of daisies near the day center. I am grateful I was able to take a few photos of them and I didn’t fall over when sitting on my knees to snap the pics.


3. I am grateful I didn’t lose interest in polymer clay altogether. I made a unicorn again today and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also worked on another, larger polymer clay project yesterday.

4. I am grateful the weather permitted me to go outside without a jacket on several days this week.

5. I am grateful for a delicious microwave omelette on Wednesday. I didn’t use cooking oil or butter to microwave the egg, so according to the dietitian, it’s as healthy as a boild egg. I also added chopped onion and bell pepper.

6. I am grateful for birdsong. I got awoken by a bird at 6AM several mornings this week. Though I wasn’t particularly thrilled about that, I do appreciate the sound of birds singing in general.

7. I am grateful it was pay day on Wednesday. I had a whole list of things I wanted to buy in my mind that I had told myself to wait for until pay day at least. So far, I’ve only ordered one thing off the list and that’s something I’ll need for a staff’s birthday next week. Sadly, I haven’t received it yet and have no way of tracking it down.

8. I am grateful I was able to get through a few intense days full of emotional, visual and bodily flashbacks thanks to the support of some trusted staff. I am grateful these few staff are still there and, though no-one can predict the future, they don’t intend on leaving.

9. I am grateful for my PRN quetiapine. It helped me calm down on Tuesday, when I was having a particularly rough evening.

10. I am grateful for my journaling app, Day One. I picked it up again and finally figured out how to use tags properly in it. I also transferred a template from Diarium, the other journaling app I’d been using. One of the good points of Diarium is that it has its templates available in other languages than English, but other than that, I think I prefer Day One after all. I am really hoping I can make journaling a habit again.

What have you been grateful for?

  1. what a great gratitude list. I have day one also. I need to start using it. Hopefully your package will arrive before the staffs birthday next week. Amazing you saw a field of daisies, I love birdsong too and there are a lot of birds outside my window early in the morning as well. Xx

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I am so happy you can listen to the birdsong early in the morning too. As for the package, it’s not the present itself, but something I need for finishing the present, so I really need it a day or two before she celebrates her birthday.


    1. Yes, I love being able to look for healthy foods that I actually love. Initially my thoughts were that healthy equals not tasty and delicious equals unhealthy. I was actually talking to the dietitian on Friday and she asked me what I’d eat if I could eat what I wanted. At first, when starting the food plan, I struggled to give up my crunchy muesli, for instance, but now I actually enjoy regular muesli. I am also happy that foods like eggs and tuna, when eaten somewhat in moderation, of course, are actually perfectly fine. In fact, no food is altogether forbidden.

      As for the spring flowers, yes, I truly love them!


    1. Thank you so much for commenting. Your mentioning my gratefuls in your comment is an extra reminder for me to focus on them, since right now I could use a pick-me-up.


  2. Is there anything much better than spring? I love hearing the birds singing in the mornings and the flowers blooming. Even when it’s a cold spring day, you still can feel that warmer weather is on its way!

    1. I agree completely. We’re expected to get some snow and temperatures close to freezing here tomorrow, but even then, the fact that it’s light outside from like 7AM till 8PM, makes up for it.
