What three things are you thankful for today?

Asked by ScurvyChamp (370 points ) March 6th, 2012

A recent study has shown that writing down three things you are grateful for every day for a month increases your optimism, which increases productivity and resorucefulness, because optimistic people can concieve more outcomes.

SO what three things are you grateful for today? :)

1. My fabulous girlfriend
2. My sense of sight
3. Having a capo that works (at last!)

Bring the positivity!

I love this. Gratitude practice. I have been doing this because I really need it. When I first started, I felt obligated to make my 5 things a “top five” list, and I would feel guilty if I left someone or something off. Today, I merely note what comes to mind at the moment, and I find it keeps my mind leaning (ever so slightly) in a certain way.

1. The warm sun coming in my office window.
2. The fact I have an office or job at all.
3. Beautiful, sincere art that my children made for me that I am staring at on my wall.

The fact that, so far, my day has been fairly anxiety free there’s still time but I am hoping it will remain this way.

I’m just going to do one, it’s all I need now: MY BAND!

I just moved to an amazing foreign city, and I fell into my dream band. All female, amazing songs, fabulous instrumentation, and all they needed was an accordion. I really feel like we could go somewhere, and at least I got six new friends out of it. Them, and our upcoming gigs, are what make me happiest at the moment!
