I am thankful that I work in a country that is relatively unbiased.

The UK isn't perfect but I work alongside (or have done) men, women and other (it's a complicated world) as well as those of various ethnicity, people with a range of religious beliefs (including none), various disablements (from ingrowing toenails to no legs) amongst them (of should I say us) as well as differing abilities. Progression is mainly due to the latter (there will always be exceptions) combined with ambition.

The world isn't an even place but I have found that natural tolerance in the UK IT workplace to be almost universal. Hurrah for us!!!

I'm thankful that the World Cup has not yet commenced. This means we can still have some hope that our team might produce some entertaining football, and even progress to the knockout rounds. (I'm English as far as the competition goes but this may apply to other nations, of which we have many in our small workplace). Sorry, it's the only non-work topic in town for a few weeks.

For the past few months I've started thinking of all the things for which I am thankful whist brushing my teeth in the morning. Helps set the tone for the day I find. Family, friends, coworkers, good health, good job, etc. Could I picture my life better? I suppose I could, but there's not really any point. That'd be a "focus on the negatives" sort of thing. If I had pictured my current situation during more stressful periods of my life would I have thought, "Yeah, that'd be the good life"? - definitely.

Thanks for the wonderful message Ben.

I am thankful for blokes like the previous responders. I am thankful for a God who loves. I am thankful for the opportunities that I have in life. I am thankful for "Top Gear", and BBC America so I can be comfortable using a term like "bloke" without feeling conscientious.

Just like in the Snickers commercials, people tend to get grumpier when low on food.

While that is partially true for me, I know I get grumpier if it is all take and no give at work. Like if you are expected to continue to work 80-90 hr weeks and travel time for work was then also expected to be on your time - not the company time. That can make me pretty grumpy.

I am also thankful for a God who loves. I am thankful to have a job that I can excel at and that enables me to live in the beautiful NC mountains.

Some days it is very difficult to find anything positive in the work environment, but I am thankful for an opportunity to make a good living. Some days I feel overwhelmed by some aspects, but try to put in perspective of bringing a challenge - I never want to be bored at work.

Thanks for reminding me that my life is good :-)
