The right circumstances

Gratitude List 29/12/2018

I read a gratitude list today and like many times before, the contents inspired me and got me thinking. I am currently recovering from the emotional illness called – me. As a result of working the recovery program with a sponsor, I feel truly blessed with how my life has turned around. My list today reflects on the circumstances I found myself when I began my journey of recovery. It could have been so different.

When I reflect on some of my decision making I can’t believe the choices I made. Despite this, I am grateful for how sane I was. I had enough sanity to make the best decision of my life so far.

Less fortunate people who acted in the same way as I, have found their liberty restricted. I am grateful I had my freedom. I was free to put the time and effort my recovery required.

I have no doubt and need no further proof that this is a life threatening illness. Today I too am grateful I was still alive.

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.
