Push the right button

Gratitude List 29/09/2018

People will continue to push my buttons. How I react to these tests is vastly improving. Until recovery my normal response would have been to hit the ‘f**k it’ button myself. Safe to say, that never made things better and consistently made them worse. Today, I can reflect on the noticeable improvement in my reactions.

Today I am grateful for:

far less anger and resentment.
– far more calmness and humility.
– far less self pity and isolation.
– far more hope and unity.
– far less frustration and judgement.
– far more consideration and tolerance.
– far less depression.
– far more happiness.
– far less hate.
– far more love.

As a bonus, this often is the same for the other person.

There is still room for improvement, but as long as I keep working it, I will keep progressing.


Grateful for the memory

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.

  1. I love this G. I have come to learn, practice and share with others that we have the power to choose how we react to what we would otherwise consider ‘our buttons pushed’. Figuratively, if you are pushed, can you stand your ground? Can you refrain from opening your mouth and saying whatever comes to your mind in the heat of it? And the punch you felt to give and to teach the other ‘a lesson’? Can you listen even to critique of your person and not take it personal? These and more have helped me so much and am honoured+humbled I can help many now too
