- Living in a fascinating multi-ethnic neighborhood where sometimes it makes me feel useful to be able to help someone else
- Friends who sometimes phone
- Friends who sometimes listen
- Having a car that's paid for and is pretty reliable and gets fairly good gas mileage
- Not needing to drive very much

- Delighted that I learned this afternoon that my daughters and grandchildren will all be in the town where I grew up, and I will get to see them all for a while on Thursday. I haven't been together with them all at once since 8 years ago, which was before the youngest granddaughter was born. They will be in town for their paternal grandmother's funeral, celebrating her good life of 89 years.
- Thankful that, though we are separated by long distance, they all keep in touch!
- Thankful that all of us are essentially in good health.
- Thankful that I have shelter, food, clothes, and many extras when so many do not.
- Thankful that I have excellent health care.

3. I am grateful for the beautiful sunny day
4. I am grateful for the support of my Sparkfriends
5. I am grateful for my dh who went to the pet store for me today because I was too fatigued

Every day I am getting thinner and healthier
I am waking up with more and more energy every day
I am thankful for the abundance that is coming to me now under grace in a perfect way

Martin Seligman the father of "positive" psychology did a study and found that people who wrote down 5 things they were grateful for daily, for 30 days, were much more happier at the end of those 30 days than those in the control group.

They don't have to be serious things either - you can be grateful that you enjoyed a good cup of coffee in the morning or found your missing slipper!

Even though we have an affirmations topic under "fun" you can include some of those here also if you like. Replace some of that negative self talk!
