    'morning all
    Well, it's Tuesday here (the clock struck mid-night 10 minutes ago. Not sure how long ago it'll have been when this post gets posted). Been trying to sleep for the past 2 hours. been up since 8.30 which is late for some people and have had a really busy day. Being that I'm not sleeping I thought I'd open Tuesday's cafe whilst Monday's is still running. Just for some added spice, you know :).

    What is 1 thing that you are grateful for?
    I'm grateful for all of you awesome people :) and for movies.

    What is a trait of yours that you like although it might not be the best?
    For me that is that I'm very straight. Or as someone just said to me. I'm brutally honest. She emphasized the brutally part..... yet she appreciates it, for she knows exactly where she stands with me. I say what I think when I think it. I'm very opinionated. Often lack a filter. And just talk straight. I don't do bullshit and for the most part don't understand it, and just believe that all people say what they mean and are good (slowly learning that I shouldn't be so innocent ;) )

    Anyways, that's my eulogy. What's yours?

    What is your reason to live for today?
    Mine is either this one elizareasonstolive.com/seventy-three-rowing-against-the-current/
    or this one elizareasonstolive.com/sixty-eight-im-okay/

    Come join us @Kira (hey, it's morning by you people's :) ) @na-taya @gazjustgaz @Arun - please bring the rest of your country mates along

    Thank you to Innocent-Forever and Shania for the Cordial welcomes.
    I think I'll go over to the counter and order a serving of cornbread. If you want some, I'll get some for you too.

    Still Monday night here. I think my reason to live is my daughter who is almost 30 years old. The next reason is the cats. Except for today (being anxious) I am grateful to be alive. A couple of months ago I couldn't say that.

    I cannot find appropriate answers to any of those questions at the moment. Still wanted to drop by and pop out of my hidden corner, if only for a brief minute.

    @Innocent Forever - thanks for including me! *hug* I hope you got some sleep!

    Umm, best trait? I love to laugh and find lots of things funny. My worst trait? I love to laugh and find lots of things funny.

    Laughing at yourself, at your own missteps is usually considered a good thing. I used to work at a law firm (as a lowly clerical slave). One day, I had to pop into a meeting with really high-end lawyers to retrieve my low-end lawyer boss's cell phone. I tripped over an electrical cord and nearly landed on my rear end. I laughed and said, "I guess my career with the New York City Ballet is over." None of them laughed. They just stared. I left as gracefully as I could. (I guess I wasn't even supposed to dare to talk to the ones who cost over $500/hour!) I'm still laughing about it though. :D

    So, yeah, maybe one reason I'm living is to laugh at least one more time... :)

    I am grateful for some real basic things right now. A roof over my head, the dinner I ate, the books I have to read, the fact that I made it home safe one more day.

    I have the same problem as Acy. I find things funny sometimes that no one else does. Actually that comes from a very weird way of looking at everything I see around me. I wouldn't change it though.

    My reason for living is force of habit. I really don't like change.

    As for the my cake offerings today, I know lots of you are still experiencing cold weather, so here are some boots:


    And hot cocoa!

    It's still Monday here, oh well at least that's almost over. :p I am grateful for this site and the great people on it. The trait i like best is my sense of humor, and one thing I live for is to see what is in store for me. Hope you are all doing well, and have a great day!

    oh a thinker this morning!
    umm my best trait is my ability to think and reason, although thats not what it used to be
    my reason to live - don't have one, but I think God doesn't want me to give up yet
    and since its still dark o clock here in Texas, some coffee to wake me (and you if you like) up!

    Hi everyone. I hope you're all having a good Tuesday. Thanks for the tag @Innocent Forever

    Things that I'm grateful for: that I found sf when I did, that I got the all clear at the hospital yesterday and, above all else, my wonderful niece and nephew who are my world.

    A trait that I like about myself: I am kind and caring. However, this is combined with being trusting and sensitive so can result in people taking advantage and me being hurt.

    Thing to live for today: to get one step closer to the weekend when hopefully I might see my niece and nephew.

    I've been feeling very down the past few days so thanks for the challenge today @Innocent Forever It forced me to think of the positives.

    Here are some thoughts, which I'm trying to convince myself are true

    Thanks for the invite! I'm struggling today so these questions might be a little tricky but I'll give them a go ^_^

    What is 1 thing that you are grateful for? - I am grateful for everyone here at SF. I love having a place I can write about how I feel without feeling judged and knowing there are people who know what it's like to care and support me <3 Thank you everyone!

    What is a trait of yours that you like although it might not be the best? - I'm not sure this is actually a trait but I've always loved my ability to see the beauty in everything. Well...everything apart from myself and the things I do...

    What is your reason to live for today? - Now, this one I'm struggling with today...I guess to find out what's in my next mystery subscription box...should be here next week...can't wait!

    I think I need some blanket snuggles today...and a yummy hot chocolate <3
