Gratitude List 24/03/2019

Since finding out what certain characteristics actually mean, the simple knowledge often assists me in day-to-day life. Armed with the facts I am able to honestly, morally and accurately take my daily personal inventory.

Amongst many others, today I am grateful for the following characteristics and their meanings. Some are defects and some are strengths. Having the knowledge of both enables me to watch for and strive for.

Sloth – reluctance to work or make an effort; laziness.

Lustfulness – full of or motivated by lust, greed, or the like

Intolerance – unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behaviour that differ from one’s own.

Coarseness – to be rude or vulgar.

Insincerity – not expressing genuine feelings.

Humbleness (humility) – the quality of having a modest or low view of one’s importance.

Open-mindedness – the quality of being willing to consider ideas and
opinions that are new or different to your own.

Willingness – the quality or state of being prepared to do something; readiness.

Industrious – the quality of being diligent and hard-working.

Selflessness – to concern more with the needs and wishes of others than with one’s own.

Gratitude List 06/02/2019

For so long did I get up each day and just exist. Wander around, do what was expected of me, feed my compulsions, sleep and repeat. I had zero purpose, no goals, no aims and no ambition. Today I am grateful I have found my purpose in life. As the days go by, my purpose in life evolves and progresses alongside my recovery.

Today I am grateful I intend to go out and be the best person I can be.

To seek gratitude at all times, even during difficulties.

To do what is morally right.

To listen to people when they speak.

To remain teachable and open-minded.

To work as hard as I can.

To put in the diligent effort.

To love as much as I can.

To serve and give back to those who have helped me.

To do my bit for the unity. To connect with the people in my life.

To work the program to the best of my abilities.

To use tolerance and consideration when behaviours go against my values.

To be aware and honest with my own behaviours and action, promptly admitting when I’m wrong.

To set a good example to my children.

To improve my conscious contact with God as I understand Him.

To pass on the same message of recovery that was freely given to me.
