Gratitude List: Week Starting June 1, 2015

Gratitude lists are a great way to look at the positives in your life. I love reading them. Though I’ve done a few positivity lists, I never called them gratitude lists. They are pretty mucht he same, but I love the word “gratitude”. Here goes my gratitude/positivity list for the week starting June 1, 2015.


  1. Lots of new blog engagement. I was quite satisfied with my blog posts this week, so decided to promote them. I received quite a few comments and got many new visitors. Thanks all!

  2. Been very much inspired to write. Today is an exception, but thinking of things to be grateful for takes inspiration too.

  3. Been very motivated to reach my June goals. For example, I’ve been learning a few new yoga poses.

  4. Finally discontinued my harsh spam filter on my E-mail, which was blocking a lot of legit E-mail with no way to change it. The amount of spam did increase, but not too badly, and I did finally receive GoodReads E-mails. These have been very inspiring.

  5. Speaking of GoodReads, I’ve joined a few interesting groups. I hadn’t taken part on GoodReads in years, but now am very much inspired to join some reading circles.

  6. Finally started reading Unspeakable by Abbie Rushton, which came out in Ffebruary and which I bought right then but never got round to reading. It’s a great book so far.

  7. The weather was beautiful today and yesterday. Today, it was quite hot (like, around 30_C) and right now, there’s a thunderstorm going over my town. I loved sitting in the garden this afternoon and I also for some reason love the sound of the thunderstorm.

  8. I bought some nice new skirts on Monday and wore one of them today.

  9. Went to the bakery stand this morning. They always have a stand right outside of the institution on Friday mornings. Bought croissants and oh, they’re so delicious!

  10. Had my hair cut yesterday. It’s quite a bit shorter now and I must say I like it better this way.

  11. Heard from the autism center consultant today. She had contacted several autism support agencies and one of them did say they can possibly guide me in my wish to live with my husband and investigate what I’ll need.

  12. I had a meeting with a woman from another unit at my institution who wants to volunteer for a blind person. She had tried to volunteer at the local blindneess institution but ran into bureaucratic issues there, so it was suggested that she volunteer for me. I think I liked meeting with her. She’ll come round to my unit on Wednesday to see if she can read me the institution newsletter or something else or we can go for a walk.

Overall, today I’m in an okay mood. I did worry a lot about the autism center recommendations and the possibility of me moving in with my husband last night. Today, I am relatively able to let go of these worries.

Positives for the Week

One of my loom bracelets.

I am feeling a bit stressed out after my computer started acting up again – not as in it being broken, just as in having a hiccup. I am also missing out on inspiration for my #Mumslist post this week, because I haven’t been online much. I thought I’d put these two frustrations to good use and make a list of positives of the week.


  1. Made not just two but five loom bracelets this week. Am working on a sixth one. The above pic shows a bracelet I made for a nurse.
  2. With today being the exception, the weather has been quite nice over the past week.

  3. I reached my goal of going to the gym this week. Did buy candy more than once though. I did have a binge eating episode on Friday, but let’s just consider that a slip up.

  4. The nurses made delicious macaroni for us yesterday. Had a delicious ice cream on Tuesday.

  5. Both of my computers are usually fuctioning again.

  6. Made phone calls to my mother and sister. My sister, who earned her Master’s in history a few weeks ago, got word that she may be accepted into teacher education after all.

And here are my goals for the upcoming week.


  1. Make a Christmas card for a swap I’m on. Yeah, cardmakers make and sometimes swap Christmas cards all year.

  2. Start working on an art doll for a mixed media swap. I don’t really know what an art doll is, but one of the usual activity staff will be back from vacation this week so I can ask her for inspiration.

  3. Go to the gym again.

  4. Write one original blog post (so something other than Tuesday Ten, Word of the Week, etc.).


Have a nice week everyone!
