    MINIPOD: Coming Out and a Generous Patient (Thanks That Got Away)

    MINIPOD: Coming Out and a Generous Patient (Thanks That Got Away)

    A trans listener thanks his Gran whilst another remembers an angel patient at Christmas...


    Thanks A Million listeners share their “Thanks That Got Away”! The people you never got a chance to say 'thank you' to. The people who changed your whole life or outlook and you didn’t get the opportunity to tell them. Now is your chance! 
     
    Perhaps it was a stranger on the bus who picked you up when you were down? The holiday romance that taught you what true love could be? Or the ex who taught you what it definitely wasn’t? Maybe it’s the sibling you never appreciated until it was too late. The nurse who cared for you in your darkest hour or the friend who opened your eyes to the beauty of the world...
     
    Over the years I’ve learnt just how wonderful it feels to say those two simple words ‘thank you’, and how a simple act of gratitude can have truly transformative effects far beyond anything you can imagine. 
    So write to me – tell me your stories of the thanks that got away so it might inspire us all to take a moment and reflect on those who deserve some gratitude. 
     
    To get your story featured just email no more than 600 words to:

    You can be kept anonymous if you prefer, but it’s finally a chance to let it out, hold back no more and share that thank you which you never got to give!

    Catherine Gray: Sobriety, Rejection and Hobnobs

    Catherine Gray: Sobriety, Rejection and Hobnobs

    The Sunday Times Bestselling Author of the ‘Unexpected Joy of’ series on sobriety, being single and the ordinary knows a thing or two about gratitude. After finding herself drinking, in her own words, “a life-endangering amount of alcohol”, Catherine became sober and wrote about her experience, now hoping to reinvent how Britain thinks about being alcohol-free. Her impressive CV includes Cosmopolitan, GLAMOUR, Fabulous, The Guardian, Women’s Health, the list goes on. Here Catherine shares about failures and rejection, how she learnt to say no and the dangers of giving alcohol to children. Oh and for the love of god stop apologising for everything! 


    But what is Catherine thankful for today? Angela finds out…


    You can order a copy of Catherine’s latest book ‘Sunshine Warm Sober’ here:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sunshine-Warm-Sober-Blooming-long-lasting/dp/1783253398/ref=nodl_
    As well as being a riposte to ‘stone cold sober’ propaganda, this book is about creating unexpected sober joy that lasts and being a very happy ‘retired wreckhead’.
