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 rain, Red Skins and text messaging.
I love the rain. Pluviophile I believe is the term for someone who loves the rain. I love the rain because it gives me an excuse to be inside. I love the rain because it makes everything lush and green. I love the rain because here in Victoria a few years ago we had a drought and had water restrictions were placed upon us. I’m thankful that the rains came back and water restrictions became a thing of the past because if there’s one thing I love more than the rain… it’s a long hot shower!
Allen’s Red Skins
I don’t know if these are Australian only or worldwide candy but Red Skins are a type of hard candy that are the absolute BEST. I love these lollies and am quite capable of eating an entire bag full in under a couple of hours. I’m thankful for the person who invented this particular candy and it makes me smile every time I even catch a whiff of that raspberry goodness.
This is one I am massively thankful for. Whoever decided that there was a way to communicate with others that didn’t involve actual vocal speech is a genius. As an INFJ who’s massively introverted, I hate talking on the phone. So when text messaging came along and gave me the opportunity to use carefully thought out words instead of spur-of-the-moment tongue garble I was one happy camper. Nowadays I’m so thankful for text messaging I resent when the phone actually RINGS.
What about you? What are you thankful for?
