Just a nibble

Gratitude List 08/01/2019

I wanted to bite last night.

Today I am grateful I didn’t.

Today I am grateful for my tolerance levels. They could be better but they definitely have been worse.

Today I am grateful that temporarily raising my voice was my reaction to my emotions. I didn’t make things ten times worse.

Today I am grateful for my consideration of others. Something I never ever had. To consider why someone is behaving the way they are is new to me.

Today I am grateful I had enough serenity to think before I spoke.

Today I am grateful it was over before it started.

Today I am grateful I haven’t woken up with an emotional hangover.

Today I am grateful for the recovery work I have done over the last two years. Work that educated me about myself and better prepares me for life’s challenges.

Today I am grateful for the positive actions I put in throughout yesterday. Actions that I believe gave me serenity and enabled me to handle this resentment.

Today I am grateful for God’s will. I’ve noticed that even when I resume control, His will has had an influence on mine.

This wasn’t a big situation, but one of the many small challenges I could face on a daily basis. But it was proof again that this program works. The tools can be used to all situations, big or small. Its why I do the program, to make a difference, no matter how small it maybe.

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.
