  5. Grateful for/to:
    1. Visiting my nephrologist, the hospital staffs are just amazing. Just looking at faces of the beautiful people (not just body, but beautiful minds), made my day.
    2. Listening to one of my favorite YouTube podcast, and it was inspirational to hear to how the guest on the channel survived cancer.
    3. The auto-drivers who took me to the hospital and back to home.
     
    • Thank you God for giving me some time for introspect

    -for being a 2-day streak last night
    -for determination to build another streak and improve my stats for this month

  7. Grateful to:
    1. My manager for giving me work today, with full control, like an individual contributor. This is an opportunity to learn and get my mojo back, even though I know this task is like a big puzzle to me.
    2. My other manager for allocating me to a development project, which has quite a similar time zone to coordinate with other team mates on the other side
    3. Getting the opportunity to help a friend with their stay in this city for some days, at my place.

    1) good breakfast
    2) my exam getting postponed to just the time I wished
    3) not acting on my PMO thoughts and distracting myself instead

    Today I am grateful for
    1) the music that made me feel liberated as I sang and danced along
    2) A decent day of study
    3) being able to embrace my low mood without desperately trying to feel better

    I'm grateful:
    - for me day 2 (there was some cheating in that, but no MO)
    - that I overcame depressive mood
    - that my family holiday is coming and that so far we've solved all the problems related to it
    - that I learn from this forum the difference between pleasure and joy

    Pleasure can be reached by PMO, drugs, alcohol. It leads to a temporary high which then is followed by low. It has a lot of negative consequences. It's not healthy and addictive. It drains your motivation and energy.

    Joy can be reached by reading a good book, watching a good film, an interesting conversation, spending time with a person you like / love / fancy etc. It gives you motivation, energy and long-term happiness. It doesn't lead to a high you'd get from drugs / alcohol / PMO but it doesn't lead to a low. It's the healthy amount of fun in life.

    Today I am grateful for
    1) being able to find happiness in the little things I did
    2) studying a bit in the little time I got today
    3) being able to dodge away triggers which would usually give me anxiety attacks
