I am in a loving relationship that feels like home.
I have an amazing support network that brings me great joy and laughter.
I am learning every day.
Having a job this period is so important. First of all it keeps me busy and active for half a day. Then the nature of my job allows me to be helpful for other people who are going through intense feelings at the moment. Finally, a job offers me security both financially and socially.I'm grateful for my job.
I'm grateful for my partner. He is there to offer me a hug at night, a laugh during the day, a discussion on what is important and intense feelings when values are being compromised. He makes me breakfast in the morning after I have served coffee. At nights he makes the best salads in the world. He is smart, funny and helpful in times of need.
I'm grateful for covid19. It sounds strange but it kinda forced me to use my anxiety in a new and productive way. I was always avoiding therapy through telephone. Now I feel I have overcome this barrier of anxiety as I work from home and I'm on the phone with clients for the most part of my workday. It also gave me the opportunity to spend more time with my partner who is also working from home. In 6 months I have seen him more times than I have seen him in eight years. Lastly, I allowed myself to utilise time otherwise spent outside, by doing creative work on setting up my business, upskilling, daily physical exercise.
I am far more resilient than I thought
It has given me time to consider where my life was going and how I need to stay in contact more with old friends

I am extremely grateful for the family that I have grown up with. My family has always been super caring and understanding of any mistakes I make. They always try to support me in any way that they can while also giving me a feeling of independence.
I am super grateful for where I live as well. I feel like Washington is where I belong. So many people that share the same political views as me as well as the beautiful sights to see.
I am super grateful to have such supportive friends. My friends have always been super supportive of my decisions in terms of a career path as well as my hobbies! Many of them join me in my hobbies and it makes whatever I'm doing feel like it has validation.
