February 6, 2010

Today I am grateful for:

Opportunities. By my willingness to change and move forward in my life I have been so fortunate that opportunities have been presented to me. On a day to day basis I am give numerous opportunities, to learn, work and enjoy my life.

My partner. I look back how I was in my addiction and my mentality was so him against me. The word partner was lost. It wasn't about us together it was about me thinking he was judging me and telling me what I was doing wrong. It wasn't until I sobered up did I realize that my thinking was askew from reality. I can see now how much more we work together as a couple raising our son, and living together as a couple. I am so grateful that he didn't give up on me when he could have.

Who I am today. I like myself. This is the first time in my life I feel like I know who I am, I am confident about who I am becoming and I am happy with my life as it is unfolding. I am at peace when I look at myself, without being negative and miserable.

Connecting with my family. It made me feel good to be there for a family member who desperately needed to talk to someone that would listen to them. For me to be able to give suggestions of their options that might help guide them to follow their path in life. It's amazing to see how we can all end up in places that sometimes seem hopeless and deadended. Not being able to see the forest fore the trees. But, if we keep walking forward everything opens up.


  1. How great it was to hear about your parenting and partnering gratitude. Yep..doing the next right thing puts me exactly where the Universe needs me. Your son and partner, I bet, are grateful too.


  2. Ah...when we're on the right road, there are rarely roadblocks.

    I'm so glad things are going well.

    Happy Saturday!!

  3. It sounds as if life is full of good connections now. That is awesome.
