Gratitude question: Who in your life are you grateful for?
Gratitude challenge: Express gratitude to at least one important person in your life.
I love how the question and challenge of today align. Please join in whichever way works for you.. I’d love to hear your answers!

Who in your life are you grateful for?

I’m grateful for the people in my life who are here for me and always support me. In particular you all, my wordpress friends. There are people in real life who I share my life with, but it’s mostly an edited version. I’ll share after the fact, more than at the time. Primarily because they’re either busy, or I know they’re not equipped to support me however much they care. I’m learning to be more open with people in real life. I’m grateful for my friends, in particular that I’m making friends with someone really random, such a light random relationship that isn’t like me and I’m grateful I can do that. I’m grateful for one group of workmates, who share random things and laughter, that I can be a part of it and enjoy it.

Challenge: Express gratitude to at least one important person in your life.

I’ll have to think of the challenge. There is one particular person I’d like to thank and I’m not sure how to. Maybe just a thank you text or email for the support he has given. Well, that was my plan… He actually emailed me yesterday, so in response I’m just going to say thank you. Some of the most important people in my life are my family – with all the good and the bad. So I’m going to try and express my appreciation to some of them.

Who in your life are you grateful for?

I’d love to hear your answers. If it’s as a blog post please link it so that I can see it.

Love, light and glitter

  1. Who in your life are you grateful for?
    Last week I read about “stretch-mark” friends in Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly – this is what she says: “The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool. To be on my list, you have to be what I call a stretch-mark friend- our connection has been stretched and pulled so much that it’s become part of who we are, a second skin, and there are a few scars to prove it. We’re totally uncool with each other. I don’t’ think anyone has more than one or two people who qualify for that list.”
    So I’m eternally grateful for my two stretch-mark friends, my sister and E. 🙂 There are parts of me that are hidden from them too, but I can be totally uncool with them and it’s such a blessing!
    Thanks Eliza for this great challenge!

    1. This made me really smile. Makes lots of sense – I’ve never heard that about friends. I’m grateful for my friends M & S and for my sisters.

  2. I have a lot to be grateful for, but today I’m particularly grateful to online friends here and elsewhere. And the Internet. I swear online friendships saved my life when I was an incredibly isolated teenager, and then an incredibly suicidal young adult.

    And I’m grateful you are writing about this challenge because it causes me to reflect on what I have to be grateful about too. Grateful for you! ❤

  3. Durability I am grateful because my online friends, assistant bloggers, as I’ve no longer seen friends I knew out of faculty among much years, just we communicate thru neighborly media.
