the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Compared to July I have felt in control of my emotions and been happy on the whole. I am still getting my head around having free time in the afternoons (which I didn’t have with my old job) and how best to fill it but everything will settle down over the next few weeks. I am enjoying my new job which is the most important thing!
