Feb 24: Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

This week’s topic is gratitude in our lives. What are you grateful for in your life?

Contemplating things we are grateful for in our lives increases our blessings and makes us realize how blessed we are. I was told early on in sobriety to make a gratitude list every night before going to bed and list ten things I am grateful for.

Although some days it was hard to find ten things to list, I did it anyway and found that once I got started, it was hard to stop at ten things. I could list many more! It changed my focus from thinking how awful things were ( an attitude of self-pity) to one of realizing that my life was pretty darn good.

Please share how an attitude of gratitude has worked in your life and share some of the things you are grateful for in your life.
