In retrospect, thank goodness.
Thank goodness I prioritized addressing some of my persistent health issues – not least of all mental.
Thank goodness I spent the last couple of years fixated on money and budgeting, deliberating practicing self-denial and flexing my emotional discipline muscles.
Thank goodness that we can say that we have anything we could reasonably need to make a house comfortable and liveable, without practical wants.
Thank goodness I already started goals that got us spending more time in the kitchen and making an effort to cook.
Thank god I started therapy.
There’s a huge amount in privilege in all of this that I am not blind to in anyway – I know exactly how lucky I am. But staring down the barrel of uncertainty and more question marks than anything, I’m very glad that I’ve had the ability to make these choices and practice these emotional skills and habits.

One thought on “Small Gratitudes”
This is all very good news and I am glad to read it.
REALLY grateful we bought a quality bike trainer many years ago — never used — and did not get rid of it, as it’s now my “spin class” on our balcony. We are lucky to have a decent supply of Lysol wipes, alcohol and N-95 masks.
