May 5, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

Waking Up To A New Day. I am so Grateful that I wake up and I am ready to start my day, no matter what happens. I have recently really started to let go about the things I can't control. It's not easy, but I keep trying. I'm not perfect about it, but I try daily. Isn't that what it is all about?

I try to start my day on the same note. Yesterday is forgotten and I have no clue what the future will bring. Of course, I have to remember some of yesterday or I wouldn't be good at following up on things. But I can leave behind the emotional issues that I may have experienced through the prior day, hopefully as I am experience them.

I do still reflect on what is going on in my life. I have to in order to build a life that I want. Staying sober, being loving, caring for others, etc. But I am working on letting the negative chatter go that paralyzes me. In the past I would lay down with that negativity and wake up with it. Today I can actually wake up, I am calm, and I meditate and pray. I'm still working on meditating as I still have a very busy mind.

I am Grateful to appreciate every day in front of me.


  1. As long as we're around, it's still one day at a time. Thanks for the gratitude!

  2. Great photograph. I could meditate on that.
