    Here is a thread idea I found on another forum. You can list 3 positive things about your day, even if it was a bad day overall it can help to take a minute to focus on some things you like or even silver linings. Hopefully this thread takes off :)

    I'll start.

    1) Had a few laughs at work. I'm trying to socialise more at work even if I'm not feeling well.

    2) Made a healthy supper when I got home.

    3) It was really sunny on the drive this morning and there was frost on the trees. Beautiful.

    1. I stopped worrying about people who treat me badly, because they aren't worth my time anymore.
    2. I am still here, even though I really wanted to give up.
    3. I can come here for support and that's always a good thing.

    Excellent idea ! 1) I got yet another compliment on my beard. 2)I ended things with a girl that sometimes brought negativity into my life. 3) I told someone I appreciated how they were nice to me the other day.

    I also brought a friend some food as he was working and he said it helped a lot. I also listened to some good music. And now I'm here with a friend as he works a late shift so he doesn't have to be up here alone. Just anything I can to help others and get good out of my own life.

    March 16, 2016:

    1. I am safe and indoors. This is not always a given because I am homeless. But for now I get to be inside and am even cat-sitting. :)

    2. I got away from a damaging mental health residential program this week, so no more hearing men getting into fights and no annoying "night checks". It is peaceful here at my friends' house.

    3. My beloved dog is sleeping at my feet under the covers. She is content and well.

    Second day in a row, St. Patrick's Day 3/17/16 :) :

    1. I will be spending time with my friend when she gets back from out of town this evening. And I even look forward to tidying up her place a bit before she arrives (I am cat-sitting her 3 cute cats).

    2. One of my friends' cats, a big gray cat named Hera, is just about 2 feet from my dog on the couch and they are both super happy. Hera is on my lap purring, and my dog is stretched out napping.

    3. I am trying to use some of my tools in my mental health "toolbox", which are strategies you can use to feel better when things are really bad. My tool, right here, right now, is coming to this website and writing this out.
