• What are YOU grateful for?

    For me? I am grateful for the fact I have the ability to define and enforce boundaries 

    It’s been a literal life changer for

    Might seem like an odd one for ‘gratitude’ but I was musing this morning in bed on some humans I have removed from my life/not allowed in because of my ability to (now lol) rationally define what is/isn’t acceptable 

    And the strength of character to enforce them

    It’s saved me so much money, heartache, stress and time but sticking to my guns and keeping form boundaries

    I am grateful for them

    And what about you?

    What are YOU grateful for?!

  • Day 11/Thursday – what are YOU grateful today?


    I am really grateful for music

    When I’m not talking to some quite Iovely humans for work?

    Music is on for the rest of the days

    It’s been the background to some of my biggest successes (CWD and HTBFA are here because of ‘Above and Beyond #truestory)…

    It lifts me up..

    It helps me process my thoughts and feelings…

    It makes the shitty parts of life bearable..

    I fucking love music and and so grateful that I have a device that means I can listen to what I want when I want it’s fucking lush 


    What are you grateful for?!

  • What are YOU grateful for? #10/Wednesday 

    Today I am grateful for my mind

    Have my sister coming over today, and as much as she can get on mine and mums tits at times

    I love her to bits

    Her brain doesn’t work like ours (she’s basically a young child) and there’s not a day I don’t think about it TBH

    Is why I have little truck for moaning – myself included – as I have a brain that works (well..lol) like a brain should

    I can think and feel and act upon my thoughts and feelings

    My sister can’t

    And I’m very grateful that my mind is one

  • What are YOU grateful for? – post #9

    Today I am grateful for the sacrifices I made for the last 9 years to be able to do things like I’m doing today

    Le fucking le off

    The feed (social) has been somewhat toxic, spammy and just full of shared shite – so I’m fucking off for 24 hours to

    – think

    – relax

    – listen to music

    – read 

    – plan

    – rest

    And it’s going to be lush (I recommend you try it) 

    My pain I’ll post up tomorrow as YEETing off here till then, but I want to see what you are grateful for

    Shits weird in the world and people ain’t being themselves you know?

    But if you look – EVERY day you’re above ground – you can find something to be grateful for

    What you got?

  • What are YOU grateful for? Day #8

    Today I am simply grateful for being alive

    Sadly the goat is no longer with us, and I’m sure many of you reading this have lost loved ones and friends

    As cheesy as it sounds, every day above ground is a good day and this little gratitude exercise helps me focus on finding the GOOD in every day

    It’s harder some than others but I find it

    And I’m grateful to still be here, especially as there was a large part of my life when I didn’t?

    What about you?

  • What are YOU grateful for – day #7

    Today I am grateful for the Internet 

    Take a moment to think how brilliant it is!

    The internet changed my life and it has

    – educated me

    – entertained me

    – made me money

    – created amazing connections 

    – kept me safe

    – helped me navigate the world

    – introduced me to pretty ladies who are totes ok with me touching their twinkle cave

    ITS ACE!

    I remember the time before the internet and we have it fucking good right now I tell you

    Proper grateful 

    And you?

    PS ‘pain’ today is recovery so gonna sweat my tits off in a sauna blanket for an hour

  • What are YOU grateful for? Day #6

    Today I am grateful for my resilience 

    My friends used to say I was a weeble

    If you haven’t seen one – you probably had one as a kid if your similar age (pic in comment #1) 

    They have a jingle:

    ‘Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down’

    And that kinda sums me up

    I can take beating after beating after beating – and somehow I always (not as quick sometimes!) I always get back ‘up’

    The ability to be resilient and to take a pounding (#lol) is something I worked on over years and now?

    Not much worries me

    I don’t let shit get me down and I get back on the horse 

    I’m glad that my parents and sister showed me how important this is, and now – especially after the year I’ve had – I’m more grateful than ever that I have this ‘skill’

    And what about you? What are you grateful for today?!

    (No peloton ‘pain’ today; I’ve shredded my quads and they are red raw…29 inch thighs will do that – I’ll find some form of misery to do)

  • What are YOU grateful for – Day #5 

    This is gonna sound cringe AF


    I feel a bit 

     typing it but it’s true

    You know what I’m grateful for?

    This group 

    Honestly I am a normal Male human from Somerset who wanted more from life and to provide for his family’s future




    I never expected anything like what I have!

    This group was started as an accountability group to help me quit/ease off the drink and in return I’d share what I knew from biz & marketing 

    Look at it now!

    It’s not the biggest but honestly I think it’s one of the most unique, caring, fun, productive and epic groups there is

    The lack of bullshit and humour of y’all is amazing

    Thank you so much for being a part of my life 

    And you?

  • Day #4 – What are YOU grateful for?

    Today’s one sounds so fucking suck up and like a cheesy pitch

    – but I swear down it’s true –

    Today I am grateful for my clients


    It’s taken a good few years, and a good few versions of ‘Dan’, but I only seem to attract humans to work with who are a fucking delight 

    No moaning

    No ‘woe is me’

    No bullshit 

    Just positivity and action and genuine kindness 

    Yes I am being paid (happily!) to do a job but it’s been a good few years since I’ve needed to ‘work’ per se

    I work with people that I believe in and enjoy their company each call is fun and each DM is a delight 

    But the kindness, compassion and empathy they have shown to me with regards to the things that have happened in my life (not that I make it a big deal, I’m just very open/honest) is unreal

    If you’re reading?

    Seriously I am grateful for you

    And what about you fellow CWD human? What you greatful for today?


    PS pain will be a late one today as all the prep for the (mini) MEGINAR

    #joy lol
