Gratitude List 29/04/2019: Spirituality

Gratitude List 29/04/2019

Spirituality

I really struggled with the concept of spirituality. I wasn’t comfortable with it at all. For me it either resembled religion or flower power from the 60’s. I fully admit to my narrow-mindedness. To those who practiced it I reacted with resentment or humour.

Although I am now open and comfortable with going to mass or dancing round a beach fire, I have come to realise through recovery there are many ways I can add spirituality to my life.

Today I am grateful I can choose to be in touch with nature and the world – to feel part of mankind. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to unite and selflessly serve the fellowship. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to let go of expectation and instead practice gratitude. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to pray and practice qualities like surrender, humility and thankfulness. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to meditate and increase my ability to let go of my thoughts and give into mindfulness. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to continuously practice spiritual principles like honesty, acceptance, tolerance and patience. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to loosen the reigns, give up trying to control my life (and the lives of others) and believe in a power greater than I. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to be open-minded towards religion and the common message. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to show and share an abundance of love, kindness and forgiveness. Spirituality.

Today I am grateful I can choose to acknowledge the miracle of life within me and how life surrounds me wherever I go. Spirituality.
