Gratitudes list 21/7/2012

Its been extra hard to stay positive this week, for which I’m blaming Mercury retrograde for cocking up everyone’s lives. In a bid to eliminate negativity here is the list of the things I’m currently grateful for.

  • Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life with the Heart of the Buddha by Tara Brach (thanks Choo)
  • Having so many amazing charity shops 10 minutes from my house
  • Living so close to the sea and a beautiful beach
  • Dickie for just being the best person in the world
  • My mum and the vet for taking care of my puppy
  • Panda for designing my amazing new ink!
  • Yoga
  • Cycling to work
  • A service user who I can’t name for being hilarious and adorable and making me smile and laugh all day
  • Spirulina 
  • Smoothies
  • Sunshine
  • Kite-flying!
  • Lavender bubble bath
  • Google Maps for now doing cycling routes (even if I still suck at reading them)

its been nearly a month since i last posted

so what have i been doing for the last month? well, i started a new job in a day centre for mentally ill folks. i spend all day teaching guitar and running art and crafts groups and helping out with the allotment. i’m so blessed to have found this job, its long hours but allows me to share my skills and be creative and to help people.

apart from work, i’ve been riding my bike, doing lots of yoga and spending lots of time with my boyface. its been a damn good month 🙂
