A thread to write about the things you're grateful for, no matter how small it is. Don't be shy to post daily!

"One of the early research studies on gratitude journals by Emmons & McCullough found that "counting one's blessings" in a journal led to improved psychological and physical functioning. Participants who recorded weekly journals, each consisting of five things they were grateful for, were more optimistic towards the upcoming week and life as a whole, spent more time exercising, and had fewer symptoms of physical illness. Participants who kept daily gratitude journals reported increased overall gratitude, positive affect, enthusiasm, determination, and alertness. They were also more likely to help others and make progress towards their personal goals, compared to those who did not keep gratitude journals."

We used to have a thread like this, but it died on /ot/ and I think it could find a better home here on /g/.
Please keep cynicism and sardonic comments to a minimum.

I love this idea, I am quite a pessimistic person but I've been trying hard to be more positive and grateful about the things I have.
Despite being unhappy with my body, I really grateful for the fact that I am able to exercise, and can fit the time into my day to go to the gym.
Despite not getting paid well I am still grateful for the fact I can decide my work schedule and that I can work from home.
I am grateful that I can have food on the table, and that I have my own privacy with my boyfriend and a roof over our heads, as well as clean water and heating.
I'm grateful for my lovely cat who is spoiled, fed well and keeps me from going batshit crazy on days where it feels I just can't handle things.
I'm grateful for fate (or just coincidence or luck I'm not sure) for getting me out of an abusive family situation and landing me here, no matter how difficult or stressful it gets at times. Things could be a lot worse for me, they could be a lot better for sure, but they could be a lot worse and I have come quite far from the darkest points in my life.

I'm really enjoying my new office job and I feel like I'm actually doing valuable work, a feeling I never felt at all in my hospitality jobs. also at my last job everyone was really cliquey and I felt like the odd one out all the time, which isn't the case at my new job as everyone is so different in terms of age and background.

I'm grateful for the fact that I still haven't been kicked out of uni even though I am barely hanging on to my grades. I suck at attendance and participation and I feared that I'd fail this one class, but thankfully my professor told me today that my participation is enough and all I need to do is pass the exam. I'm taking this course for the third time because it's so hard and I just want to get it over with. But phew, looks like I can sleep tonight. I was so anxious over the last couple of days. I am also grateful for my comfy bed, food and no anxiety over dropping out. I'm gonna treat myself with some nice dinner, lay in bed listening to music and playing Animal Crossing.

I am really grateful for morticians and what they do to make such a hard time a bit easier. My grandma died very recently, and even though I was immensely sad, when I was taking a breather I thought about how awful it probably is to deal with a lot of the stuff that goes into that work.
Spoiler for a bit of graphic detail My grandma was pretty big and heavy. She was buried in a regular sized coffin. We could only see her face and her arms in the coffin, the rest was covered by flowers. I believe the morticians had to take a lot of fat out of her body and make it look nicer for us and to fit the coffin. I can't imagine that work being pleasant at all, even if you are desensitized to a lot of stuff.
So thanks, morticians and other funeral home workers, for making it possible for us to give our last goodbyes in a much smoother fashion.

I'm very grateful that to still have my dog here with me. She is 18 and has slowed down considerably. I say that I've accepted it, when her time comes, but I know that I will still be overcome with grief and sadness. At the end of the day, it is still a blessing to be able to say goodbye after 18 long years together. The hole she will leave behind will be too big for anything to fill, but I think the grief and sadness I will have to face is a small price to pay for all the years of happiness and love I have received in return. There are days when I regret ever wanting a dog, but death is inevitable. All I can say is that I truly feel blessed to be able to grow up with a dog, and to be blessed to have her see me grow into an adult. We could have lost her much, much sooner, but by the grace of God or the universe or whatever else, I have been able to come home everyday to her.

I love her so much. Words really cannot describe how grateful I am for her.

I am very thankful for all of the mice that help us with science. I love rodents (I love all mammals, really) and I know their conditions can be less than ideal sometimes and I know they're not there willingly, but thank to a lot of these mice and rats, we can save a lot of lives and make breakthrough discoveries. This is not much, but I want to honor their spirits.
I'm so sorry, mice friends. But thank you so much, a thousand times, thank you.

That's a really sweet thing to be thankful for nona ♥ I always think about the contributions animals have made to science research because I do want to study biology some day.
It sucks knowing that there is a lot of necessary evil in the pursuit of knowledge, especially for the medical field. Not even for just animals, I imagine a lot of people had to experience a lot of pain before we knew what the fuck we were doing. Though hopefully we know now a lot of things are obsolete to test now.

Reminded me, The secret of NIMH and Plague Dogs are good fictional stories about animal testing though they are pretty bleak

Thanks, I think you may know, but The Secret of NIHM is based of in this real life experiment. Warning for animal abuse. I loved the movie as a kid (although it scared me) so it surprised me that it was based of a real thing.

On topic, I'm very grateful for Wikipedia! I know it's discredited a lot, especially in the earlier days, but it's such a good site. I think I use it almost daily, even if it's just to check what is the name of this specialized word in english or or any other language or see how old an actor is, for example. Maybe I'll just read it for fun because there are some topics that I had no idea even existed. I really love their message of never monetizing the site to keep knowledge open for all people that have an internet access. I was reminded of this because I got an e-mail from them thanking the donation I made last year (it was a really small amount), and now I feel like donating again, they really deserve it.

I'm so grateful for my mother.
She's had such a crappy life and although she hasn't been perfect, everything she did was with love.

During her pregnancy with me, my grandma (dad's mum) was a nasty bitch towards my mum, stressing her out, but mama always chose the right foods, stayed optimistic and physically active so i could be born healthy.

in my early childhood, she made sure i study well to get myself out of poverty, cleaned people's houses so she can earn money and buy me and my brother food we normally couldn't afford, despite my dad not being around much and having to provide for herself and two children, she made sure i was fed, clean, tidy, homework done, attended every parent-teacher night despite working 12 hours and did her best to satisfy my bratty wish for girly things.

in my preteens, my mum found out about my dad's love affairs and although she hated his guts, she chose to make it work for my brother and i, so we don't grow up fatherless. he still left a couple of years later and spiraled into depression that no child to see. despite all that on her plate, when i told her about my suicidal thoughts she simply hugged me gently and we cried together. to this day i blame myself for making her life worse by doing that but she managed to get me a counselor and saved my life. she's recovered now as well but i will never forget days that she tried to hide her tears from us. still put me and my brother as a priority.

in my teens, i was a rollercoaster. we either had a great relationship or i was a total bitch to deal with. having to figure out my identity and typical teenage hormone problems alongside dealing with the aftermath of what my dad did + depression made me an absolute nightmare to deal with.
i never "rebelled" i just had a pessimistic and bitchy attitude.
my mum would go on to retaliate in ways ik she's not proud of, but i now know she was doing her best. at one point even broke down crying to me saying that she's not sure how to properly parent anymore. just really happy those days are behind us.

now, i am 20, still developing and nowhere mature or wise enough to understand the full picture, but i do understand so much more than i did before and man i am so grateful for everything she's done for me.
i just love my mum so much.

her childhood was shit, abusive alcoholic dad, her youth was shit, married at 18, fled from an ethnic cleansing with a baby at 19 and three younger siblings + 1 deaf older sibling, lost her husband in that war.

even after it was all over and she started a new life in a new city, my older brother would have health issues that needed treatment in another country. a few years after that she meets my dad and gets pregnant with me…

there is no doubt that most of her life has gone to absolute shit, yet.. she chose happiness.
she chose to try at life no matter how bad things got, she never EVER quit, forgot about her children and despite being at her lowest, still tried even harder.

my mum is my hero, she is a legend and a genuine inspiration for me.

i love my mum

I spent so long sucking up to my father because I wanted some affection from him only to be chewed up and forgotten whenever he found a new girlfriend. I found out he cheated on my mother and started a one sided "open relationship" when I was born. I cut ties with him and I've never felt so free and I've only just realised how much my mother has done for me.

A few years ago I faced tragedy and deep loss of a loved one. It really took the life right of of me, and the pandemic only pulled me further under a depression.

I am grateful for my family and that my parents tried their very best with me because I think they did well and still do to this day. I am grateful for my friends, the real life ones and also the online ones, especially the ones I can just chill with/talk about anything really/ and the ones that have been there for me when I really needed them. I am grateful for good music and being able to afford music streaming services. That my family is from a village so I get to see the stars when I visit them. I am grateful for having a healthy and nice body, I even like my short legs even if its not a beaty standard. I am grateful the lokál government has invested a lot in greening the area so there is a lot of shade and fresh wind. I am grateful for my cycle being regular. I am grateful for him and I am feeling hopeful.

This really does feel nice to write it all down, some of these things O really take for granted.

Dogs are so special and life changing, and it's awful that the time we get to spend together is so short.

This is going to make 0 sense to non britfag anons but today I am grateful for my A-level results and the people who supported me to get them.

also yes this is shameless bragging but I'm allowed this one time

After missing a year of school bc life and being sectioned (ty CAMHS) then covid happening I didn't think i would actually sit my exams on time. Then a false allegation made by people at my 6th form about me caused me to be the center of a popo investigation while I was sitting my exams. I had 0 confidance that I would get an A in anything. I thought i was going to let my entire family down and everyone that has supported me when they realized how stupid I actually was. I was convinced I would fail. I got A A A in Computer science, philosophy and maths. I'm still in shock and don't believe this isn't a dream. If this is a dream the fact that I'm dreaming about scrolling lc is actually really sad.

having these results has just made life 100x easier for me. Also I'm so lucky to have a partner who would be just as proud of me even if i didn't get these results, and a parents that have always tried to put my well being first. Idk, just ty universe for this one

I'm grateful for hyperfixations/the ability to hyperfixate. Sometimes when I'm in a depressive slump and everything seems meaningless and I hate myself, I just tell myself "Well I'll just keep existing if only so I can read more about 'x' interest" and it works lol. The amount of serotonin and adrenaline I get when new information is released is insane. I don't have many things in my life to be proud of. I don't have like, any hobbies or accomplishments or many friends to talk to on a whim. Sometimes I feel like my life is nothing, but I've had some interests for years and it feels comforting to know that probably no matter what I'm always going to have an interest in those things and that well, at least I know a lot about something even if it's completely arbitrary and pointless to most people (and even creepy), but it's something unique to me that sets me apart. I'm happy my brain does this. It's almost like being in a relationship or a friendship where I know I can always turn to researching my interests when I'm bored or need to snap out of a slump. When I'm deep into something, I feel like I only exist to consume information and that nothing else matters (and it's a great feeling especially if I'm depressed). I do wish my brain picked something a little nicer to fixate on, but this is the gratitude thread so I won't go into that.

I’m grateful for my dad. I did some researching on 9/11 as I do every year and paid my respects to one of my dad’s friends, who died on the 93rd floor of the North Tower. He was killed instantly since the plane hit right there. His daughter, 1 year old at that time, likely does not remember him at all and it made me realize that I should be grateful to even have my father be alive. All the times we’ve fought or I’ve taken his presence in my life for granted… There are so many children who have lost their dads and I am so lucky to have mine in my life. With this in mind I really want to change our relationship for the better and be a better daughter and family member. I am sorry, dad, and I wish I came to this realization sooner. I hope I can fix our relationship and make you happy the same way [my younger sister] does. I love you.
