Atheists can count their blessings too

Atheists can count their blessings too
This is just a place where we can talk about the things that make life worth living. Whether it’s little things that just brighten your day or huge life changing positives or anything in between.
I want to know what’s going right for you. What makes you happy? What gives you hope? What’s that boost you needed to help you get through the day?

I enjoy solitude, nature, to explore, training, doing new adventurous activities. Makes me feel alive.


Whenever i feel hurt and afraid i like to just be alone with myself.

 I have a new cat myself. Holly ware joined us in January. A rescue cat about a year old.

She's lovely and no mistake, but always remember - cats aren't friends.  At best they're emotional vampires and malignant co-dependents.  We have two, and love 'em to pieces. Oddly enough, watching the little one chase the big one round the house perks me up no end.

RE: Atheists can count their blessings too
Things have just been going right lately. Part of that is me feeling better, and not depressed all the time, and part of it is making smart choices, but part of it is just luck. I wanted to get a better towel than I got at Walmart, so I look at Target, and all their towels are on sale this week. I ordered a set of wire shelves from Target, and before I actually pick them up, they go on sale, saving me $10. I went to Hallmark on Friday, looking for a birthday card for my brother-in-law's birthday. I found one, but it wasn't awesome, but I grabbed it and decided to spend time looking for a gift card holder to go with it. In doing so, I happened across a beer themed birthday card that I'd missed (he's into craft beers, and one of my gifts is a set of beer glasses). So things have just been overall going well for me. The only thing which didn't turn out well this week was that I found a reusable K-cup pod for $3 at a dollar store. I was happy about the find, but after opening it I realized it wouldn't work in my coffee maker, and so I'd wasted three dollars. On the other hand, a reusable K-cup pod that is supposed to work with my machine was $1 off this week. I bought two. The only thing not going well in my life is that I'm not doing a good job of sticking to my budget. I have spent more than I take in for most every month in the past year. I purchased a subscription to a budgeting tool, and it's helping, but I'm still not making ends meet. I don't think that I'm weak and undisciplined, but I just don't know. I keep saying "next month," but next month comes and I do the same damn thing. I need to figure this shit out. It hasn't significantly harmed me financially, but I can't keep going like this forever.

(Oh, one other thing that didn't go optimally. I picked up a new microwave, and the one I bought went on sale for $10 less this week. It's not practical to reorder the sale one, as I need the microwave now. Realizing I could have gotten a better deal is still something that sticks in my craw. Probably a consequence of my parents' obsession over getting the best deal and just money in general. I've addressed some of the bad habits and traits that I learned from my parents, but there are far more that I haven't. I'm still inclined in the direction of hoarding material goods (my mother was a classic hoarder), but I'm not fully there. Digital hoarding though, and getting better at that, is still a bridge that I've yet to cross. I've got a shit ton of stuff on computer storage, but instead of just getting rid of the useless stuff, I just keep buying more storage. And every week I add to it with copies of movies that I borrow from the library, but never watch. It's a sickness, it really is.)

(ETA: I ordered the microwave from Target after a prior one from Walmart that didn't work out. It took a week to deliver, and another week to get the warranty coverage straightened out before I opened it, so I've been without a microwave for 3-4 weeks. As noted, this morning, it's on sale for $10 off. So I contact Target customer service, and they gave me a price adjustment, no questions asked. Things just keep going right.)

I have friends whom love me. I have a cat who loves me. But most importantly, I had my late mother, who saved and saved her entire life with the goal of taking care of me. I'd be living in the street now if it were not for her.

So pleased to learn things are going well for you.

Have you ever considered retail therapy with Ebay when you't feeling a bit flat?

I have been buying a LOT of stuff on Ebay over the last  2 years, usually cheap stuff. Cheapest most recently was a universal remote, recommended by a friend; $7, delivered, from Hong Kong. I use Paypal and have asked for a refund twice.Got my money back each time.   Ebay tend to support the buyer. Most other things are household items and office supplies, under $20. .--BUT, also bought a 55inch TV, a laptop and a router.. No problems.

Bottom line, it's  pretty safe and lots of fun.

Pretty depressed these days. Maybe seasonal affective disorder. Bright , sunny , warm day today. Cooked a nice dal with rice. Feeling better already. Have a great job. Nice family. Fun on the forums! Think I will watch a few Hitch reruns on youtube before bed. Always a good time!

Sorry you’ve been depressed but I’m glad you’re having a good day!
