These three prompts made me feel very nostalgic today, and they also put me into a film-marathon mood. If I didn’t have to do research for world-building, I’d definitely be watching films! Hmmm… maybe I can multitask!

Day 10: What are you most grateful for in your childhood?
When I looked at this question, I didn’t have a single answer. My childhood consists of much darkness. Then I closed my eyes and my grandmother popped into my mind. I used to spend every weekend with her as a child, from Friday evening to Sunday evening. It allowed me to escape such a toxic home-life, and she was the best cook, especially her barfi and ladoo. So, I would have to say my grandmother. I didn’t get much time with her, but she is definitely the only thing in my childhood worth remembering.
Day 11: What film are you most grateful for?
I can’t choose one. Films are what I turn to for self-care so often in my daily life that I honestly cannot choose one film to be most grateful for. It’s impossible for me as so many of them have various levels of sentimentality to me. Although, here is a list of some of the ones I watch most frequently when dealing with sudden depressive episodes.
Day 12: What 3 people in life are you most grateful for?
Of the living people, Sir Besty is number one. They have helped me so much in the past four years. If not for their kindness and constant support, no matter how tough things become, I would not be sitting here as a living, breathing entity. The other two are deceased but their memories and life lessons keep me going forward. There’s my brother, which won’t be a surprise to most of my regular followers. He was more of a parent to me than anyone else. The second (or third as it were) is my grandmother, whom I talked about briefly earlier in the post.
Also, I’m going to cheat and say all four of my cats. They are my children and they bring me so much joy, so much comfort and companionship, that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to express the depth of my gratitude for them.
