Gratitude is an Attitude! It’s one that set me out on the right foot to getting clean and sober. More importantly it’s been the cornerstone or keystone that has aided me in maintaining my sobriety. It’s also been a key in learning to grow and change cause sobriety wasn’t enough for me I also needed to reprogram my thinking and my actions.
grat·i·tude: (noun) the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
I wasn’t thankful I was constantly complaining and I didn’t show any appreciation but now I am always thankful and ready to show appreciation for kindness and ready to return kindness. More importantly I am the one that radiates kindness.
Some quotes from today’s show:
- “‘Enough’ is a feast. Buddhist proverb
- “Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” Charles Dickens
- (and one I love very much but forgot to say) It’s not happy people who are thankful. It’s thankful people who are happy.
