This is an interesting one as it’s a double edged sword, but I’m grateful for the interwebs.
When I have been isolated from the rest of the world, I’ve been able to keep in touch with friends all over the place.
One of my longest friends (longest friend? Friend that I have known for longest, I can’t figure out how to make that sound right!), I met via the Internet, and thanks to the wonder of technology, we are still able to keep in touch many years later.
That’s something I love. It’s easy for people to keep in touch.
The existence of the interwebs also means that I can get all the crochet and knitting patterns I like!
I listen to a lot of podcasts. Admittedly, most are true crime, but there is some comedy in there too.
Anyway, I discovered the other day that the lovely Harriet Dyer has her own podcast, Bi (polar) Happy, so absolutely had to subscribe.
Harriets podcast is largely about living with Bi-Polar disorder, and I’m utterly inspired by how Harriet deals with her diagnosis. The podcast is a great insight into what it’s like living with mental health issues.
Each episode, Harriet looks at 3 ‘good’ things in an attempt to be more upbeat, and this made me think about how i must learn to be more positive.
We all know how easy it is to become bogged down with things and the effect that this behaviour can have on our mental health, so I thought I’d try a little challenge – for 30 days I will think of something I am grateful for.
It may well last longer, but I don’t see much issue with that.
So…from tomorrow I will be posting daily from my gratitude log.
Lucky you! Maybe it’ll inspire some of you to do the same. Or maybe it won’t. Whatever.
