    I appreciate:
    • The anime shop I visited today and the employee there who helped me find some gifts for a friend.

    I'm going to challenge myself to post here regularly for a week, and then build up to longer streaks.

    Day 1/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. My bedroom, because it is my space and comfort zone which I can come back to when things get overwhelming.
    2. My space heater, which does its job pretty damn well.
    3. Weights, because lifting them helps build muscle.

    Day 2/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. Humanity. As much as we're inundated with news about what's wrong with the world, I believe the media shoves that in our faces just to keep our attention and make more money. The good things that people do aren't given much of a spotlight, and it should, because most of humanity is good.
    2. This computer I'm using right now. Who would've thought a century ago that we can access almost all knowledge ever known to have existed with a few clicks.
    3. Therapists. It feels amazing to know that there are professionals out there you can go and just vent to and talk about your emotions with. I feel that's a profession that doesn't get the credit it deserves.

    Day 3/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. Water, because it keeps me hydrated. Nothing beats downing a glass of water after being thirsty for a long time.
    2. Music, because I can get lost in it and just enter a different world entirely.
    3. Adversity, because these moments allow for lots of mental and emotional strengthening.

    Day 4/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. Debrox, because it helps clean out the ear wax from my ears which makes it hard for me to hear properly at times.
    2. Cool breezes, because stepping into one when you're stressed out calms you down in an instant.
    3. My older cousin, who despite not showing much affection, loves everyone deeply and will do anything to help. It's because of him that I've been able to land a full time job and I will be forever grateful for his help and guidance.

    Day 5/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. My fitbit, because it helps me track my calories burned and makes the process of weight loss scientific and measurable.
    2. Video games, because they're a great way to stimulate the mind (in moderation of course).
    3. My sisters. Now where do I even start with these guys. I can write full length novels detailing the impact they've had on my life. I don't ever think I can have the same impact on their lives. I would give myself up for them if the situation calls for it.

    Day 6/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. The NoFap forums. It's comforting to know that there are others out there facing the same issues, which we can tackle together.
    2. Thick sole shoes, because nothing sucks more than being caught in a storm with thin sole shoes and feeling your socks get wet.
    3. Some friends I've made through group therapy. I've been attending group therapy sessions for a few terms now, and there have been some familiar faces who I've been seeing in groups for a while. It's become very easy to open up in the presence of people I know and it's also great to see the progress they've been making. Some of them weren't doing so well when I first met them, but they're doing a lot better now, even if they don't realize it. I make it a point to note the progress they've made, just to remind them of how far they've come.

    I've reached day 7/7! Now, it's time to continue on for another week.

    Day 7/7

    I am grateful for:
    1. My friends. There are times when I feel like I'm alone and have no one, but then I take a step back and realize that I do have a group who have my back. They mean the world to me.
    2. Doctors. Imagine people falling sick and trying to self diagnose. Having experts in that field give us accurate diagnoses is very reassuring.
    3. Books. I've been telling myself to read more and rightfully so. Books are a great way to stimulate the mind, become curious and build creativity. You also become more well spoken and can articulate your words better.

    Day 8/14

    I am grateful for:
    1. Cars. It's so easy to get to some far away location with the help of these.
    2. Airplanes. There's no mode of transport which leaves me as awestruck as flying. The fact that I can travel to the other side of the world in a matter of 14 hours is just mind blowing. You're in the sky flying at 500mph, yet inside the airplane, it barely feels like we move at all!
    3. Phones. As much flak as they get, I believe phones are on of humanity's best inventions. We can call people, text people, look up information, set alarms, listen to music, play games, all on a single device. Obviously, we need to make sure that we don't overuse them.
