No matter what is happenning in our lives - good things or not so good things - there are always things for which we can show gratitude. It puts it all into perspective.

Seeing the sun and blue sky today for the first time in ages.

Realising a pair of my gym pants are definitely too big and I need new ones.

Getting through my step class and although it was with a different instructor and harder than usual, managing to keep going and enjoy it.

Getting through a difficult weekend of socialising and family visiting without going as off plan as I expected.
