In an attempt to self-actualise and fight anxiety and depression I have decided to regularly post about something I am thankful for. This might be something small like chocolate or something on a far larger scale, like sunshine.
Join me (or don’t) and comment on your own ‘thankful things’ in the comments section below!
This week I am thankful for my husband, pain killers and living in Australia.
There are two words in this world that keep me sane, make me happy, and make me feel safe. They are my husband. I am
cursed blessed to be an INFJ and long thought no one could or would ever understand me because of my INFJness. However, I met and married not only my soul mate, but a fellow INFJ who’s as equally neurotic special as I am. No matter what happens in my life, my husband is my one constant, the one thing I can rely on and the owner of my heart and soul forever. I am deeply thankful for my husband.
If my husband is the pain killer for my mind, soul and emotional self, then codeine is my physical salvation. I get bad migraines and, when writing, bad neck pain. At times like these the only thing that helps is pain killers. Good old neurofen plus (that’s ibuprofen with codeine) knocks in the arse any pain that comes my way. I am so thankful to the talented scientists who made these wonder drugs.
Living in Australia
We may not be the biggest country, we may not be the most civilised either, but there is no other country but Australia I’d rather live. We have an amazing medical and healthcare system, plentiful crops and bountiful fauna. We have iconic skylines and majestic buildings, a range of seasons and weather, and are at the forefront of the latest technological and medical breakthroughs. For these reasons Australia is known as the ‘lucky country’ and for these reasons I am thankful to live in Australia.
What about you? What are you thankful for?
