That’s right folks, these posts are making a come back! I’m double as anxious as I was when I stopped doing these posts, but I’m a fair bit less depressed. It feels like a good time to reinstate these posts, so let’s get into it!
I’ve been really grateful for the Internet lately, which I know sounds a bit sad but hear me out. I’ve been finding so much amazing new music, and none of it is stuff I’d have been able to find without the Internet. I’ve been learning more about how to record my own music, it’s been keeping me entertained when I don’t want to learn something, and it’s let me stay in touch with friends. Sure, the Internet also has its downsides, but for the last few months I’ve been very glad to have it around.
I’m also, as always, very grateful for my job. It can be stressful, and it’s pretty much always hard work, but working hard for a business I actually care about, with a boss who is just absolutely fantastic, is a pretty good thing to be doing. I’ve even got my own keys now, which feels like a lot of responsibility, but so far I’ve only set off the building alarm once!
I’m also super grateful it’s a job that means I get to bring tapes home, and I’ve watched some amazing movies in the last few months. I suppose if you really want to get deep, I’m also really grateful that thousands of people spent hundreds of hours making movies for everyone else to watch. Even if I don’t like a movie, the time and effort that goes into every film ever made is still impressive, and something to be grateful for.
When I get home from work, it’s usually before Rich, so I’m greeted by all the cats and I’m definitely grateful for them! Ringo might have woke me up by biting my toes this morning, and I’m usually woken up by Otis nibbling my nose, but I love these cats like they’re my children, even if they’re annoying as possible.
To finish up, I’m super grateful for the people I have around. From Rich and my mum, my boss, my pals, I feel like I’m just surrounded by genuinely good people at the minute, and that’s a really nice feeling. Everyone I have around me are people I know I can trust and rely on, and people that I’m pretty sure feel the same about me.
All in all, anxiety is the woooorrrrst, but things could definitely be worse!
Id love to hear what you’re grateful for the in the comments!
