Today I read this really cute poem. It’s called Three Gratitudes by Carrie Newcomer. It’s really great. 10/10 would recommend reading it yourself, if you haven’t, and then following the challenge that Cindy gave us, to list our own three gratitudes. So, having said that, my three are:
- Rainy days. I know it’s a little weird, but I really enjoy them. It’s a little cooler outside, everyone is a little sleepy. When I’m at home I curl up in a big pile of warm blankets and pillows with my favorite girl and nap and read books and in those moments, life is perfect.
- Hot chocolate. It’s warm, sweet, creamy, delicious, and has just enough comforting ability to keep me awake but not anxious.
- Quiet corners. I tend to hide in bathroom stalls, quiet rooms, and any corner that is out of the way. With my anxiety comes a lot of overwhelming feelings, a lot of the time I get overstimulated (a great little article to help with this sort of thing). When I get over stimulated and cannot focus, or run away to a quiet corner, I turn on my headphones, noise cancelling/reducing, and I turn on my rain noises from my Pacifica app that I have blogged about in the past.
Ok, your three gratidtudes, go!
