The Previous ATTZ. of GRATZ. are HERE:
Welcome to "ATTZ. of GRATZ." whether it's your FIRST time here, or if you've been participating for a while.
I've been trying to keep this going since Sept. 2018.
If you're new, and this seems interesting enough to you, feel free to just jump right on in!
Many of us have been on Lock-Down or Self-Quarantine for a long time. For a lot of us, it's easy to feel stir crazy and forget to think about things that are good and what we can be grateful for. Coming here used to be helpful, a place to escape, but thinking about Eclipse becomes worrisome the closer it is getting.
No matter what, I STILL believe we have things to be grateful for. Sometimes it's more challenging than others, but that's okay as long as we can think of something! Gratitude gives us strength.
I just want to thank those who participated last time.
Thank You So Much To The Following Artists Who Participated In GRATZ Last Time!
It is greatly appreciated!
Current "ATTZ. of GRATZ." aka "Attitudes of Gratitude"
STEPS for GRATZ:
STEP 1: Recognize Them, STEP 2: Truly Feel Them, STEP 3: Write them down
and/OR Share Them With Others to Solidify Them and Make Them More "Real".
It's difficult to take back something that you've written down, or shared out loud with others.
Plus, while it helps yourself, it can also help others by making us feel happy and helping to think of our own possibilities!
ALWAYS feel free to participate, even if you have participated before!
You are more than welcome to read how this got started at the bottom of the first GRATZ journal:
I continue to recommend: Attitudes of Gratitude by M.J. Ryan
I've been doing this series on some semi-regular basis, AS ABLE. I don't commit to an exact day, or how much time will pass in between. Those who know me best, know it's better that I don't. So it's up to you now...
You could name up to FIVE,
but it's seriously awesome to be able share just ONE!

I must have missed this?
1. Discord: I don't know what I'd do without this app on my phone lately. It really helps be structure my day and connect with people.
2. Dragon Age: I recently went back to playing it and it's just perfect to distract myself from negative thoughts (and get a laugh out of some conversations).
3. The SPN family and mentality: You probably know what I mean. I've been seeing a lot of fans going through hard times recently (on top of the pandemic) and posting about it online. The support and compassion really lifts me up.
4. Memes: Gimme all 'em good memes 'cause they make my day.
5. Going through all this as a collective: Yes, some might want to exclude themselves from the greater mass but it is way easier to connect with others through this shared experience.
I am grateful for your constancy in always thinking of others! Thanks so much for including my art in your wonderful and uplifting features too!
I am not leaving even though I can't honestly say I am enjoying Eclipse, but I am slowly trying to learn how to use it.
Take care sweetie!
I am having a lot of trouble with Eclipse actually. I can barely navigate it.
Thank you for sharing... who knows if I can figure out how to create a journal. That is pretty advanced stuff.
I am grateful that - now we are into new territory with the morphed dA, most of our have taken the challenge and come along for the ride too - fabulous!!
I am grateful that everyone seems to be supporting and helping each other - at times like these (bad timing dA!) this is vital!!
I am grateful that all the legal issues in the UK seem to be ending - takes the load off!!
I am grateful that we can see my mother-in-law as often as we wish - being smart and seeing her in the garden through the fence of her retirement home instead of making an appointment for 15 minutes once a week in a sterile room...
I am grateful that restaurants and cafe's are now open - although numbers inside are restricted and some neat choreography is needed to meet all legal requirements as well as to be served in some comfort... but its hell eating and drinking with a mask on
Yes, I'm having a hard time with Eclipse and I will miss doing some things unless somehow I can figure it out... Hopefully we will meet again somewhere someday. I'm glad you enjoy this series. I wish somehow I could find a way to continue it...
For now, I'm grateful for all my dear friends here.
I'm also grateful as you've said for a good sleep, because lately this is a new problem for me and last but not least, I'm grateful because no matter what life is beautiful.
Take care and stay health and wise.
Thank you for everything.
For the mention my Daughter Tea. I think it is a situation with the New DA if you create your journals there in the future something that is inevitable I think they will show there. For some reason it happens on some journals and not on others. I am really not certain but I do appreciate the efforts. Today I am grateful that you are still with me and I am still with you and our mutul friends at such a difficult time for us all. I am learning the New DA and there are a lot of very nice features that I have discovered. I am ready to switch permanently now that I have made sure everything is there. Once I get more relaxed with it then I will make more changes. We are all here to help each other so hang in there with us. It is not as bad as many think especially since we are not starting from scratch. Much love to you always from your Mum.
My daughter Tea. You are right, your journal is about gratitude first and foremost and I did put what I am grateful for as well as my comment about the New DA they are calling it now since the issue was mentioned within your journal. I wanted to reassure you with that as well. I would not have mentioned it otherwise. I am really not worried at all about my work showing or not showing up in your journals. If they do fine if not the mention is very much appreciated without the art. Much love to you always from your Mum
