Gratitude List 16/04/2019
Yesterday the obsession was on top of me. The inevitability was strong. My will-power was about to collapse. Fortunately, I listened to God’s conscience.
Today I am grateful to have a knowledge of recovery tools.
Today I am grateful I had the strength to use this knowledge, pick up my phone and connect with a like-minded fellow.
Today I am grateful I shared with him exactly how I was feeling.
Today I am grateful I then called my girlfriend and was honest with her – how I was feeling, but also how I had been deceitful.
Today I am grateful I thanked my greater power for His guidance and strength.
What I got in return:
Today I am grateful my utter weakness was being replaced with a power greater than myself. This power came from unity, honesty and humility. As I spoke, I could feel the strength flooding back into me.
Today I am grateful the power was far stronger than the obsession. It only took a few minutes before it was completely lifted.
Today I am grateful for how connected I suddenly felt. Not only did I feel empowered I felt serene, I felt at peace.
Today I am grateful my call was a welcome one. Without me knowing, the benefits were working both ways.
Today I am grateful this was not an obsession of my primary addition. Even so, the powerlessness I felt took me right back. I am grateful for that reminder. I’d like to believe the very same tools would have arrested that addiction in the very same way.
Today I am grateful for how the direction of my day was changed. Not just my day, but potentially my week or my month.
