2 again…

Gratitude List 13/09/2018

Despite being 21 again next year, today, I celebrate my 2nd birthday. Clearly I’m referring to my second life. How lucky is that! To have two goes at it – I am truly blessed. I sincerely feel reborn. Unlike my first life, I can recall on my pre-existance. I have a wealth of experience, good and bad, that I can draw on in my attempt to be the best person possible.

Today I am grateful for:

– all the support I have received in the last two years. I could not and cannot do this by myself.

– all the positive actions I have taken over the last two years.

– all the negative actions I didn’t take.

– all the experience, strength and hope I have listened to.

– all the lessons I have learnt and the tools I have gathered as a result.

– all the strengths I have gained despite having to initially Google their meaning!

– the day at a time attitude. One day at a time with abstinence. One day at a time in recovery.

– the huge improvements in my relationships. From that with my kids to that with the shop owner downstairs.

– the service I have done. Thinking of and doing things for others takes me out of self and completes my recovery.

Grateful for the memory

Grateful for the message

A relative newbie to gratitude. Starting each day with a gratitude list sets me up for the day. This small effort starts a domino effect of positive action and subsequent serenity.
