    3 things to be grateful for

    Mon Apr 19, 2021 1:05 pm

    Hi everyone,

    We understand that weekends are the hardest moment of the week for many trying to stay away from gambling. For this reason, we’re going to be having weekly activities on Saturday and Sunday. The main goal is for everyone to be able to connect with other members at the same time, get support and advice from the community, as well as the motivation, inspiration and conviction to keep pushing yourself forward on this journey.

    - 3 things to be grateful for: share 3 things that you’re grateful, could something you're grateful for today, in your life, about your week or the week ahead. :);

    For example:
    • Being able to connect with you all through this forum
    • The love of my friends and family
    • The adversities I have overcome in life
    • The warmth between my bed and the sheets

    Sundays, alternating fortnightly with “Share your favourite quotes”.

    We hope you find the activities useful, fun and entertaining. Any feedback will help us keep improving this space for the benefit of all.

    The new activities will be running in addition to our weekly Chatty Tuesday meetings.

    Looking forward to seeing you around the forums,
    The Team

    Hello everyone and Happy Mother's Day!

    Let's wrap-up the weekend with some positive vibes sharing 3 things to be grateful for.

    1) I'm grateful that the Sun came out today and I was able to get some lovely vitamin D
    2) I'm grateful for all of the amazing people in my life that I look up to and that help me when I'm most in need
    3) I'm grateful that I will finally get some time-off for myself next week (mainly to catch-up on sleep and Netflix) :D

    What are you grateful for today, in your life, this week? @JinxyWolf @Jc @Squeaky @Menz199 @Jimap @ryan1019 @Two1 @Musiclover01 :cool:

    Hi @Jimap, that's a beautiful thing to be grateful for. We often underestimate breathing because it's a basic function of our bodies, however breathing can be such a powerful tool for our physical, emotional and mental well-being. :);
