    (This was in reference to 'Be happy with what you have while working for what you want')

    Yes, and this is something I think I've done myself, in my case mistaking gratitude for timidness. Thinking if I'm grateful, then I will have to settle with what I have. Turns out it is the opposite.
    I find gratitude brings new ideas on how life can become even better, and what steps to take.

    I'm really grateful people are keeping this thread alive and kicking with new content, it is a good reminder to keep practicing, even if I fall out of it for a while. Like any habit, it becomes stronger over time.

    Hahaha, I did the same originally. And also nice wording of choices, Bushido and agoodfuture. I am currently making a self-improvement thread that will mention this.

    1. I'm grateful for sweating. Sometimes, it feels good. Tells your body is getting heated and working really hard.
    2. I'm grateful for wisdom. I love it when people vent to me, and I vent back at them.
    3. I'm grateful that I donated to a charity for a good cause.

    1. I'm grateful that I woke up alive, with another 24 hours at my disposal (repost). Things aren't all great, but those things are temporary and can be fixed. And why can they be fixed? Because I am still alive to do so.
    2. I'm grateful for Massive Attack. They make some of the best downtempo trip-hop tunes ever. They are fantastic!
    3. I am grateful that I was born and raised in Australia, the country with the second-highest standard of living in the entire world. This is an enormous privilege that I need to thank the universe for every day.

    1. I'm grateful for Rick Hanson. A well-known expert in Buddhist psychology and neurobiology. His books Buddha's Brain and Hardwiring Happiness have taught me a lot.
    2. I'm grateful for earth. Our home planet is certainly beautiful, and not to be taken for granted. As part of my Reboot, the only porn I am allowed to look up is earth porn, lol :p. I'll post an example photo below.
    3. I'm grateful for Jurassic Park. This is a franchise of which I am a massive fan. Some of my most enjoyable childhood memories were of me sitting, transfixed, in front of the TV screen, watching giant T-rex's chasing screaming humans. Fun!

    1. I'm grateful for the late George Carlin. One of the most astute, sharp, acerbic and intelligent comedians / social critics of his time. There will never, ever, ever be another person like him. RIP George Carlin. You were an inspiration to me and to so many other people around the world.
    2. I'm grateful for Noam Chomsky. When asked why he does what he does, he answered "How else could you look in the mirror and not be appalled by what you see?" Those are the words of a man of humility, sincerity and virtue. He always inspires me to read more, to get myself educated about global geopolitics, and to inject as much value and meaning into my own life as humanly possible. When he passes away, the world will have lost someone truly special. I'm very grateful for Noam Chomsky.
    3. I'm grateful that there is still a chance to get our acts together and limit the planet to 2 degrees Celsius warming. We need to keep it to this limit (at the most) if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. I'm grateful that we aren't there yet. We must keep hope alive that a far-reaching solution is possible. If we don't solve this, our grandchildren will not have a viable future on this earth.

    1. I'm grateful for Melbourne's public transit system. I have a bus stop right outside my apartment block. The bus goes straight into the CBD. God-damn it I'm spoiled! ROFL.
    2. I'm grateful for my double bed. It's comfortable and easy on my back. Thank God!
    3. I'm grateful for pancakes. They are cheap, delicious and amazing. I live and die for them. Hey, you know what? I think I just make go and make some. Pancakes with lemon and sugar. What an epic start to an epic morning!

  19. This is a great idea, and I think I will join y'all! Day One:

    1. I'm really grateful for my house, despite how freezing it is. It would be a million times colder if I was outside, so shelter is something to be happy about.

    2. I'm grateful for a friend I met here who has reminded me that some people really do get me. lol Talking with him has made me more comfortable and excited about initiating conversations with new friends in person. Not to mention that he is very kind and is always ready to help me through moments of struggle when I need it.

    3. I'm grateful for one of my nephews (grateful for all of them, really, but this one in particular) who has, for whatever reason, latched onto me as his special friend. Oftentimes seeing Grandma and Grandpa is the most exciting thing in the world -- not everyone gets as excited about Auntie, but he always makes me feel extra special!
