Gratitude List 29/05/2019: Again and again

Gratitude List 29/05/2019

Again and again.

A very thought provoking piece of writing that was shared yesterday, made me think of all the things I currently do to acknowledge and respect my powerlessness over certain things. The idea behind it, as I understand, is by taking on specific actions I am once again admitting my powerlessness over my compulsions. And these humbling acts can be the difference between me staying clean and me ‘acting out’. For each one I am very grateful.

Today I am grateful for picking up the phone and calling my sponsor. By doing so I am asking for help, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for writing this list. By doing so I am practicing gratitude, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for reading some recovery based literature. By doing so I am learning more and more, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for calling two members. By doing so I am uniting with fellows, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for prayer. By doing so I am handing my will over to my greater power, asking for His guidance and strength, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for meditation. By doing so I am taking the time to improve my conscious contact with my greater power while I open up my heart and mind to Him, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for attending meetings. By doing so I am practicing unity, hearing and sharing what I need to, as well as contributing to the welfare of the meeting and the fellowship as a whole, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for working the steps in my daily life. By doing so I am changing who I am, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

Today I am grateful for taking on service. By doing so I am being selfless as I think of others, admitting again and again that I am powerless over my addictions and that my life is unmanageable.

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.
