    How and Why to Report a Post
    gratitude for us 2.13
    sittingbull594 posted:
    I'm going to try and remember to post the rest of the month a gratitude list.

    I used to do this a while back and then have forgotten about it.

    I hope you will join me! There's nothing like being grateful for what you have to make you want to do better and to feel humble.

    I'm grateful that for over 33 years I have been working from a home office (and at times early on working in other businesses) and now have an office outside the home!

    I am grateful that i have such a wonderful husband.

    I am grateful that i have such a great forum to express myself and to hear all of you here!

    hi sittingbull, how are you? i dont believe we have met. i havent been on for about four months, but was a fairly active member during last spring and early summer, and also last fall. i saw your post about starting your gratitude list again. that is a nice idea. i bet it helps. maybe i will give it a shot also. is it something that you keep private or is it something you keep tacked to your refrigerator?

    Have a great rest of the weekend,

    I'm a very old member with a very new name within the last couple of mos. I'm sorry i can't break my anonymity. I live in the same state as Kitty.

    personally i keep my gratitude list in my journal and on here or another forum in the past. its nice to write it down because it does make us remember what purpose we're to be here.
    socalmsg replied to sittingbull594's response:
    hi, anonymous or not, it's all good either way. :0) i would love to keep a journal but am way to afraid that if someone should come across it, they would not respect my privacy. maybe journaling online would be safer.
    sittingbull594 replied to socalmsg's response:
    would be very careful of journaling online as the whole world could have their eyes watching even if you protect it. It's always a permanent RECORD. i found that out the hard way. thus my hidden identity. not as hidden as i would like.
    socalmsg replied to sittingbull594's response:
    wow. gotcha. i appreciate the insight. thanks again.

    and if not in a physical book, you can hide a notepad file on your computer somewhere. or keep email drafts in a seperate email account. just some ideas

    And I am grateful my car is still running and able to take me to work (i drive a lil over an hour one way) and that I still have a job to go to...

    I am grateful for the support i have received and am getting my butt in gear to start a small business in womens sportswear. its in very early stages and I am thankful for a kind man who is helping me with a website for next to nothing!

    and as always and everyday- I am thankful for this forum and the wonderful souls who gather here

    with you
    DOGDANCING_TCOS replied to rugger1369's response:
    Online options are many, you can start a blog under an assumed name and journal away.

    I have one under my name...I've long given up trying to hide. Its very "free-ing" to let it all hang out.
    I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.
