This thread is intended to be a celebration of all of the things that make life great. Think of it as an opportunity to count your own blessings and appreciate them.
For me, it is these things.
I know I have a lot of mental and developmental issues, but I am very glad that people know more about these things now than they ever did before, and treatment these days is able to help shape me into a functional member of society. I am thankful for that.
I have very few good friends IRL, but I appreciate all of them. Just like I appreciate the many good online friends I have made over the last couple of years on various forums.
I have my own apartment, the bills are paid every month (well, there was one snag at the beginning of this month - but that got fixed very quickly), healthy food is in my fridge and cupboards, so I have life pretty well off despite my general lack of funds. And I appreciate that.
And I am getting a grant that will cover all tuition and book costs at the local community college - so I very much do appreciate that, as well.
Not to mention, my massive DVD collection (ten years of collecting DVDs = over 1,000 discs), so I have no shortage of entertainment in my apartment. And the joys of my XBox. And the progress I have been making studying Kanji on my own (although I still am looking forward to proper Japanese courses when I go to school again). Heh.
So, there you go. Sure, I do want more in my life (particularly, more IRL friends and eventually a loving boyfriend), but I do have things pretty well off these days, and it would be foolish of me to overlook all of that.
What in your life are you thankful for?
