Today I am grateful for:
Gratitude. Just the point that I can feel gratitude so overwhelmingly today. There are so many times I have to fake it until I make it. The force is strong today. I am moving along a path where I am cognitively making changes in my life. I am letting go of the fear attached to the unknown. I am letting go and letting God do what I could not do for myself. Seriously! I have never felt such an empowerment in my life.
My therapist. I have been seeing different therapists off and on for 30 years. I have always felt they just end up sessions where I sit there and whine and I can't stand it. I never felt like I got anywhere with our meetings. I never felt like I walked away with tools I could use. I have found someone who is exactly spiritually aligned as me. This helps me in so many ways. When I can start with my higher power and then work out the rest of my life through the tools I am learning it brings so much clarity to my life. Unbelievable. I am so grateful.
Amazon Kindle. Seriously! I have Kindle on my iPod. That fact that I can get books in seconds and start reading is unbelievable. I am reading "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. I can't put it down. She is a recovered alcoholic for over 30 years and an artist. I am so fortunate that the teacher presents them self when you are ready.
To be able to listen for the Words of my God that I hear through Friends, Children, AA, Youtube, billboards, TV, Radio, and places I never thought I would hear them speak. I just have to be willing to hear what I need to hear. And I am willing.
I am so grateful for this moment. It's not a pink cloud kind of thing. It's a feeling of truly feeling my connection with my Higher Power. I feel Peace, Happiness, Love and a smile is on my face. I am shedding that old miserable way. I am vibrating and it's not the coffee!
I wish you much love through your day.
This is an added note. I had a comment yesterday that I didn't see until after I posted this blog. I am re-editing it. AKAAnnie suggested that I read the book I started reading. Is that not God talking out loud or what?!
This is December in Illinois ???
