      Gratitude can sometimes be difficult to find when living with a life-threatening, progressive illness like idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). However, I firmly believe that there is always something to be thankful for (even amid a global pandemic).


      In recognition of the American Thanksgiving this weekend, I wanted to spend some time writing about gratitude and being thankful. Even during hardships, it’s important to choose how we respond to what happens to us. One of my favourite quotes talks about this: “we cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them“. This holiday weekend my friends, I challenge you to make gratitude your response to things in your life! While 2020 has certainly been challenging, dig deep to find what you’re grateful for.


      I am very thankful to all of you on this forum platform for your knowledge, commitment to helping one another and virtual friendships. Here are a few columns on gratitude for you to review if you’d like:
