Gratitude List 13/04/2018
I shared these thoughts last night. I am so grateful for the way I am changing. I think I’m currently happier than I ever have been. Even on the days where for whatever reason I’m feeling a little low, I can still look back at how far I’ve come and be happy. Where I was and where I am now is nothing short of miraculous. And to confirm, it is I that has changed. The world around me hasn’t changed. Life still throws it’s obstacles. I am still challenged by others. The same defects of character are available. The same temptations exist. I am so grateful that change is possible and that I have the choice to continue to do so. The following are just some of the changes I have made….
I have found honesty, open-mindedness and willingness. Without these change is near-on impossible.
I have surrounded myself with like-minded people. Friends for life whom I share similarities with. Friends who continuously educate, inspire and motivate me.
I have tried to lead my new way of living with friends and family who knew the old me. This is the new me, I’m proud of who I am and I’m fed up with wearing masks.
I am putting my time to good use. I know what is good for me and what is bad. It’s not easy but it’s a simple choice of change.
I try to live my life in the present. What matters most is now. Whatever I am doing, I need to as much as I can appreciate the current moment and not regret the past or fear the future. Presence is indeed a gift.
I have admitted my powerlessness. I have realised that I am not the director. I’m not always right. What I say doesn’t go. I am not high and mighty. I am a being. Unique for sure, but just a being. I am ready to be guided by my higher power.
I have gathered some tools to help me deal with the roller-coaster that life can be. This was done by applying myself to a simple program to the best of my ability. As a result my roller-coaster now resembles a under 5’s caterpillar ride and not the high-octane, high speed, looping, dipping, broken rickshaw, death trap that I personally designed.
I have found gratitude. These lists have opened my eyes for the firsttime in many years and is a major contributer to my happiness.
