POSITIVE TOPIC Amidst Pandemic

I want to make a topic where we write positive things about our lives and what we are happy about.

I am happy I have the best mom in the world and because I have online friends that are awesome and because I discovered very good music bands to listen to. I am happy that tomorrow I'm starting to write my own autobiography book and looking forward to meeting my Japanese friend IRL when he comes to my country. I am looking forward to becoming a makeup artist.
What about you gals and guys?

Glad that even during this pandemic, we are still blessed with work as there are people around the globe who have lost their current jobs when this pandemic hits their country. :)

Hi...it sounds like you have a lot to look forward to and focus on...but even for those that don't maybe have as much to focus on, they are trying ,I think, to "keep things cheerful"...and "colourful".... And even though I would never normally condone this ( as being, it's far too early!)..... The whole town have been putting up their Christmas lights , since first week in November. I've never seen anything like it !!! I've even put my trees up to join in... because I can fully see why they are doing it !!

Christmas is a time to be happy..... so why not put the trees up early? As you mentioned they are colorful.


I have a neighbor across the street who keeps some of his Christmas lights on all year long.

The baubles do make a 'Christmas' tree, don't they?

Christmas will lighten our hearts and give us hope and joy.

To share a major and well established positive thing in my life is that I am very content to live a semi reclusive lifestyle with a naturalistic garden. I love solitude - the freedom to do what you want, when you want and being at peace with myself/grounded. I know many people see being alone as loneliness and, to me, this largely feels like they have not yet made friends with themselves yet, i.e. are not in harmony with their own company.

(I hasten to add that I have good social skills, enjoy being with people (more so because it's not so often). As a lightworker, I gravitate to those emotionally suffering and find I am able to help alleviate their situation; giving so much can leave me drained so the opportunity for solitude and to recharge my batteries is a real boon.)

It helps that I'm inquisitive (so much to know/learn about) and creative e.g. into upcycling, trying out/adapting recipes, writing the odd short story.

You ask us to also share what we are happy about. Obviously the toll of this global pandemic is catastrophic but - on the plus side - it's given many a chance to pause, reflect and the opportunity to reset/take more beneficial future directions. Perhaps more welcoming is that it provides an opportunity to shake up their priorities, discover what really matters (e.g. the quality of relationships) helping to reevaluate the hold that materialism had on their lives accordingly.

Also I'm a member of a local community forum (not spiritual - just neighbours) and am delighted that many on there are now noticing and appreciating nature anew/with fresh eyes and sharing the joy that this brings them. I have always been a nature lover which is a constant source of delight to me.

The pandemic has, if you look in the 'right' places, some really good prices on things such as food. I like mushroom soup. When it came on super sale, I was delighted I had the funds to buy some.
