|Here I Am|
I am of a full and thankful heart today.
The past few days have reminded me of beautiful life lessons, if I keep an open heart, full of love.
I am reminded my Loved One loves me beyond words.
I am reminded that by sharing my struggles about drinking with a friend who also struggles, makes both of us stronger.
I am reminded that sharing of food and stories with friends, cements our love.
I am reminded that walking outside under the blue sky, with the songs of our earth, helps me see the bigger picture.
I am reminded that there are many people who share stories of addiction, and this is a common shared human problem.
I am reminded that happiness comes from love, not from more things.
I am reminded that when I celebrate other people’s success, I am lifted.
I am reminded that I will always be on this journey of spiritual and emotional growth.
Each day I want to remind myself to be stronger, braver and more loving than yesterday.
Each day I want to remind myself that by improving myself, I can help other people and make the world a little bit better.
I can slip into self-pity, complaining and comparing very easily.
Keeping a thankful heart is a key lesson for me, not only for staying sober, but also for living a full and happy life.
With Peace On Day 269
