I have so much going on for me in my life atm that I'm so thankful for and consider myself blessed, that's what triggered this theme.

With everything going on in the world at the moment, let's have a time out from that and talk about what we appreciate in our lives and what we are grateful for.

Today's theme is what we are thankful for, appreciative of and gratitude.

Some questions to get us started;

What are your passions?
If it was possible to be a 'passionate reader', that would be me.
What is something you are proud of yourself for accomplishing?
Kicking major ass every day at work and making it look easy. Because it's a very physically demanding job, and I'm not exactly a spring chicken at this point.
What inspires you?
That's one of those words that are frequently used, but nobody ever stops to wonder what, if anything, it actually means. Btw, 'meaning' is one of those words, too:D Don't worry I won't spoil the mood, I'll just pass on this one.
What have you overcome that you never thought you could?
Getting married, raising two kids and then getting divorced.
What are you grateful for?
Being strong enough to be free, and smart enough to appreciate it.

Hey Champagne, thanks for tagging me. Presently i’m deeply overwhelmed by my discombobulance - though more organized and orderly - and headed in a positive way - though its kind of hard to organize my thoughts and jump in and participate. i have a list of “back” threads that i want to respond to, but with the intense/complex thoughts i have about them i don’t think i can do it and be sure i’ll be saying what i want to. i’m trying now to just respond here in a simple immediate way but you know me, it always seems so necessary to write these long long long replies. wish there was just one word that would say it all!

With everything going on in the world at the moment, let's have a time out from that and talk about what we appreciate in our lives and what we are grateful for.

well, since you said “moment” i googled that and what i find odd is that they say a moment is 90 seconds. i’d say anywhere from a split second to a few days with it primarily centering around 17 to 87 seconds. but thats just me. anyway... the Qs...

  • What are your passions? the most important ones i’m not ready to tell about - other than writing, music, art, food/cooking and b... whoa... let me not get ahead of myself.
  • What is something you are proud of yourself for accomplishing? its still accomplishment in progress... i really do want to tell. still so hard to do that though. Help!!!
  • What inspires you? belief that i really do have purpose here, there and everywhere in this seemingly purposeless universe...
  • What have you overcome that you never thought you could? well like i just said the crippling fear still lingers and i still need to overcome that but i’m getting more and more sure all the time that i will overcome it, and soon. but in many senses, what the fear is about i have already overcome but lets figure out how to make me move positively and comfortably forward already...
  • What are you grateful for? my purpose in the universe! SF! my kids! and certain specific people along the way who i can talk to and bounce ideas around with! and that i’m not alone in my efforts to reach my true goals!!!

Hope everyones had a good day, thank you for opening the cafe again @Champagne 😊 these are definitely times to appreciate gratitude...


  • What are your passions?
Being myself mostly, being there for people. Creativity, gaining knowledge etc.
  • What is something you are proud of yourself for accomplishing?
I just recently realized in talking to a couple of people in my life theres quite a few things I should be proud of, it left me really surprised & flattered a tad(a lot of overwhelming stuff I guess). I'm pretty proud of overcoming addictive behavior & an abusive relationship pattern a lot. Proud to say its years behind me & I'm glad I learned when I did. Evidently I'd have to say I'm pretty proud of over coming the worst of my social anxiety & getting a mindful grasp in my ptsd moments, it definitely has helped my inner strength & me grow as an individual
  • What inspires you?
I have a lot that inspires me, from good to bad. I take some mistakes as lessons & look for a way to improve & do differently or to avoid possible malice later on. Theres definitely something inspiring in our everyday, to see what inspires others is even a bit inspiring 🙂
  • What have you overcome that you never thought you could?
A lot of fear & a lot of telling myself I can't do something. I still don't really grasp how I've grown from it somedays, I thinks it's the thought of the possibilities.
  • What are you grateful for?

I'm grateful for the basic things in life. The ones close to me, the things I have, but I'm also grateful for nature, the good things & good memories. I'm pretty grateful for what I have evidently I've found times I've forgotten to appreciate little things, but as I get older I definitely have learned differently 🙏 I feel fortunate even for that
