Exercises to help you feel thankful
TeddyBoy, my tuxedo cat, walked into my life after living on the streets.
He repeatedly pushes my cell phone off the counter, rolls around on the clean dining table, and drinks water from the kitchen faucet, using his paw to occasionally hit me with water splashes.
TeddyBoy makes me laugh every day and shows me how not to worry about the future…perhaps the best pandemic advice out there.
I feel thankful for being able to read, process, and enact your shared “zine”. Every night I give thanks for a safe and healthy day. I have had a wonderful life, full of work, hobbies, friends, family, travel that have outweighed the “bad” of death, divorce, and disappointments.
Thank you so much for being such an amazing artist and for sharing your work with us ❤️ The newsletter of this week was really special and made me think of many “irrelevant” things that I am grateful for… such as: drinking a coffee, laughing with the ones I love and eating a red velvet cake.
My son and last born here at home with us in his senior year of high school. Soon to be off on his own at college. So happy to be present every single minute in sweet shared time that flees.
Oh The Last Waltz is on my top ten movies. I’ve watched it many times and am WOWED. EVERY. TIME.
Thanks for this—it was much needed today. My wise counsellor suggested I start writing down three things I was grateful for every day a few years back when I'd been through the wringer and was in a state where I was just waiting for the next boulder to fall on my head. At first I didn't get it—how could this help me? But boy, did it ever. Anyhoo, I've fallen out of the habit so thank you for the reminder!
I feel so thankful for simply waking up every day, and especially being able to see, hear, smell, walk think and function coherently. And..... being able to write about being grateful for exactly all of this as the first sentence in my morning journal. Even though I now live in Spain and we don't celebrate thanksgiving this week here, it wouldn't be a bad thing for the whole world to do from my perspective. Thanks to you Austin, and all creatives everywhere for enhancing my world.
Love this zine on gratitude! Thank you!
I am grateful for all the creative souls i have the pleasure of connecting with.
The zine is perfect! I am printing and bringing for my family to complete :) Thankful for your creativity!! It has been refreshing every Friday and now Tuesday too!!
This is so lovely and profound. Such a crazy year of loss and gains and still sorting out the lessons learned. Thank you and I am certainly grateful for your presence in words. Onward.
Reading this statement:"Any thing you think is static in your world is actually in constant flux. " Made me think of this: "www.newscientist.com/article/dn25441-longest-experiment-sees-pitch-drop-after-84-year-wait
For some of us thanking comes easy but we forget. Thanks for the reminder.
Going to print and give away about 100 of these on Sunday, inviting folks to fill out their own and to leave folded, blank copies for folks to find around the city. I'm speaking about guerilla art as a spiritual practice, and this is a perfect little tool for that!
Thank you for the zine. I just sat with my kids and filled them out, colored and shared them with each other. It was a fun thing for us to do together.
Perfect timing and execution. Thank you.
