Anything you have felt positive about, no matter how small and petty it may seem please share. Even if it's managing to get the motivation to have a wash

I will start.

Today I have cleaned my kitchen, I know it's a basic thing but finally I can see the work tops and floor.

I got out for a walk today round the park and only needed to stop to rest once.

PiperIsOrange Fri 10-Oct-14 22:19:44

Well done smile

I drove into the city centre, attended a meeting and drove home. I didn't cry and only had a minor moment.

Well done Raft and Piper smile

Congratulations MrsMinton.

I feel like this forum should have 1 positive thing, something for people to aspire to write on.

MrsMinton Fri 10-Oct-14 23:32:53

Thank you. I think your idea is a great one.

Raftofdeterminationandlove Sat 11-Oct-14 23:19:22


I think this is a lovely idea too. Today has been hard so it is nice to try and think of something positive.

I caught up with my friend for a meal. It was so lovely to see her. I felt a bit panicky afterwards but didn't actually have a panic attack.

MrsMinton Sat 11-Oct-14 23:22:29

Glad you had a nice meal Raft and the panic attack stayed away.

I've felt tired and low today but my two DS got their certificates for completing a reading challenge so we went and watched. H and I held hands and watched them. It was lovely for an hour.

PiperIsOrange Sun 12-Oct-14 01:05:36

Well done both of you.

Raftofdeterminationandlove Sun 12-Oct-14 01:16:01

Thank you.

I manage to go to work today smile did feel a bit low but survived it.

Raftofdeterminationandlove Mon 13-Oct-14 17:36:56

Well done Piper

I went to a singing group today. I was v nervous but I enjoyed it and glad I challenged myself.

MrsMinton Mon 13-Oct-14 22:31:28

Piper I'm so pleased the first day is out the way.
Raft that sounds fantastic well done.

I made a difficult phone call. I feel better now it's done.

PiperIsOrange Tue 14-Oct-14 13:10:05

Amazing to hear.

commuter123 Tue 14-Oct-14 13:24:09

I had a really nice sandwich for lunch... after feeling grotty for a couple of days I enjoyed it so much! Small things...

magicgirl74 Tue 14-Oct-14 23:12:42

After worrying about my hubby going to Holland on a course for a week I'm coping better than I thought I would being on my own with my son who has adhd and aspergers ☺️

MrsMinton Tue 14-Oct-14 23:26:57

Commuter brilliant smile

Magicgirl I'm so pleased it's going better than you expected. I hope the rest of the week is as positive for you.

My positive for the day: I got everything organised tonight ready for school and work tomorrow so the morning will be calmer.

Raftofdeterminationandlove Thu 16-Oct-14 20:18:45

Well done everyone smile

I got a couple of birthday cards today. From the charity shop too so quite cheap.

windchimes23 Thu 16-Oct-14 20:45:47

I am being discharged to OP tomorrow (assuming I behave tonight, which I most definitely, positively will), did my online shop. Can't wait to cook my own food smile

MrsMinton Thu 16-Oct-14 20:52:36

That's great Raft, I love charity shops smile

ReallyReal, what a lovely thing to look forward to. Have you ordered something nice to cook?

My positive is I watched my DS running about and didn't feel the rising panic that he might get hurt. still felt uncomfortable but not anxious.

PiperIsOrange Thu 16-Oct-14 21:52:48

Glad people on this thread are doing and thinking positive.

I know this sounds really petty, but today I loved worked.

MrsMinton Thu 16-Oct-14 22:02:17

I like that Piper. smile
I love work. It gives me structure and makes me feel I'm not useless!

Raftofdeterminationandlove Fri 17-Oct-14 23:24:59

I like working. I don't do paid work (for various reasons. Hope to one day) but I volunteer and it makes such a difference to me.

Today I managed to buy some good quality and cheap wine as presents for friends.

windchimes23 Sat 18-Oct-14 14:41:52

How is everyone today?

I have made my children homemade chicken soup and bread for their afternoon snack. They are now playing with a huge amazon box which held a tiny item (typical). We are making a castle out of it. TBH I am bloody knackered but am keeping on trying to see the good smile
