My therapist has me doing a gratitude journal, but I haven’t done it since I learned I likely have cancer. It’s really hard to feel gratitude right now. Likewise, it’s hard to find some goodness in my days, but I’ll try.
I remembered something this morning just in time to fix it before it became a problem. Nobody at work found out I had completely forgotten about it and everything went as planned.
I got my pre-surgery blood work done over my lunch break even though I was dreading it.
I got a massage after work.
It’s hard to feel the goodness in the good things sometimes, especially with anhedonia and anxiety. I guess it’s important to acknowledge them just the same to maybe change your thinking. I could definitely use a more positive outlook.
Thanks for suggesting this.
