Gratitude Diary, Week Four – N

Week four, back for more!!

This week I watched helpless as one of my good friends was admitted to hospital and eventually required sugery and time in the ICU, so firstly I’d like to say I am most grateful for my health.

But I’m also grateful for two of my good friends, Maya and Sonia, for helping me get through those long days at uni!

And I’m also grateful for my eyesight. For obvious reasons!

See you next week!

Gratitude Week FIVE

This week aside from being mildly grateful that this part of the assignment is over I am grateful for:

  • randomly remembering the 4 assessments due this week that I had forgotten about
  • understanding group assignment members
  • this subject – optimism has never been my strong suit but I feel like I am getting their slowly!

Gratitude Week FOUR

This week was my 21st birthday!

I’m feeling especially grateful this week for my family but I’m pretty sure I’ve thanked them every week so this week we can let it go without saying that I am incredibly grateful for my family.

  •  I am grateful for corn fritters (so delicious)
  •  I am grateful for friends who turn up to birthday dinners drunk after going to the races, because it only made me appreciate the effort she had gone too in order to even get there.
  •  I am grateful for my work friends telling me they miss having me around, nothing like an “we miss you” to make a girl feel loved!

After four weeks I am feeling more optimistic about life and finding it easier to look on the bright side of things.

Gratitude Week THREE

This week I am grateful for love.

My parents went away and I came down with a ridiculously terrible bug.

I am grateful for my grandmother who looked after me and dragged me to the doctor.

I am grateful for my parents who changed their flight to look after me when the doctor suspected something serious.

I am grateful for having people in my life who love me enough to be seriously worried about me.

(I am also mildly grateful for the joy that anti-biotics and Panadol bring. )

Gratitude Week TWO

This week it was harder to see what I had to be thankful for, uni work has been piling up and I am getting more and more overwhelmed, I was pretty sure any note of gratitude would simply read:

“I am grateful this week is over.”

But I had a saving grace, a manager at work, Ali, pulled me aside and told me that he appreciated my hard work through a busy few shifts. A man whose own boss was kicking his butt over a few out of control mornings still took the time to remind me that I was appreciated.

This inspired me to write the following gratitude diary for this week:

  • I am grateful for Ali and for his constant optimism that brings a light to our workplace.
  • I am grateful for the delicious meals my mum cooked me
  • I am grateful for the friend who I bitched and moaned too about how “tough” my life was

Looking forward to a gratitude filled week three!!
