My Daily Gratitude

Today Monday 8/10/2015 I am so very grateful to have my electric on! Very rude loud storms barreled their way through my area last night. I could not get to sleep until close to midnight they were so LOUD! The power flickered twice but came right back on.

Today Saturday 8/8/2015 I am grateful for my upcoming 1st class in school where I will learn about this:
The Essential Guide to Becoming a Master Student.
Goals of the course: The overall goal of this class is to provide the learner with a
better understanding of the learning process to facilitate academic success. 

Today Thursday 8/06/2015 I am grateful for nice weather. Sure, it gets humid and muggy but the Sun comes out pretty much every day and we have no nasty weather or tornadoes in our current forecast. That works for me!

Today Tuesday 8/04/2015 I am grateful for the folks who deliver my mail. All of them seem to be hard workers and have always been kind and polite, even in the nastiest of weather!

Today Monday 8/03/2015 I am grateful for every penny of the income I receive. I would be in very bad shape without it.

Today Sunday 8/02/2015 I am grateful for being able to get a good night's sleep. I used to have what felt like endless problems with insomnia; having gotten through and resolved so much of what fueled my mental illness, insomnia is no longer a problem for me.

Today Saturday 8/01/2015 I am grateful for my apartment complex, the folks who manage it, the maintenance man and the AC repair man who fixed my AC yesterday afternoon. I have lived here for over 6 years and I really enjoy the consistency of dealing with the same folks over the years. I think they do a great job! When something needs to be fixed, they are on it and get it squared away quickly!

Today Friday 7/30/2015 I am grateful for being in recovery. I began my road to recovery in 1990 and I am grateful for all of the healing I have experienced.

Today Thursday 7/30/2015 I am grateful for second chances. I am going back to school and I just can NOT be more excited about that! I am enrolled at SLU in their online Professional Studies program and I can't wait to get started!

Today Wednesday 7/29/2015 I can't believe I brain farted on yesterday! Today I am grateful for being able to understand my background, the ability to process it and to move forward leaving it where it belongs, behind me.

Today Monday 7/27/2015 I am grateful for who I am becoming. After so many decades of my life spent in a miserable fog of alcohol and depression I am beginning to feel that I am finally coming onto my own. I am ready to begin building my life now.

Today Sunday 7/26/2015 I am grateful for crafting. Without my creativity, I think my life would be very dull and colorless.

Today Saturday 7/25/2015 I am grateful for my friends, ALL of them! I am surrounded by loving, kind and positive folks and I am very grateful for that!

Today Friday 7/24/2015 I am grateful for each and every day I wake up and have a day to look forward to! My payday is coming plus I am going back to college and I am over the moon about that!

Today Thursday 7/23/2015 I am grateful for being able to learn. I am capable mentally plus having access to the Internet plus local libraries opens up endless possibilities for me to indulge in learning whatever I want.

Today Wednesday 7/22/2015 I am grateful for having the ability for self-reflection. That coupled with my work in recovery has saved me from myself.

Today Tuesday 7/21/2015 I am grateful for my hair. It is healthy. I am happy with my natural color and its texture.

Today Monday 7/20/2015 I am grateful for everything I have. I have a roof over my head, clothing to wear, income coming in, wonderful friends, enough to eat. I have health problems but I manage.

Today Sunday 7/19/2015 I am profoundly grateful for the fact that I have CHOICES.

Today, Saturday 7/18/2015, I am grateful for the folks who manage and do the repairs for the apartment where I live, I have lived here for a little over 6 years and I love the consistency. I find that to be comforting.

Today, Friday 7/17/2015 I am grateful for every opportunity I have to improve my skills so I can truly be productive and achieve one of my most important goals: To be Self-Sufficient. I have access to the information I need online plus I am going back to school to get my degree on August 17th, 2015. That is one month from today. Look out, World!! HERE I COME!

Today, Thursday 7/16/2015 I am grateful for my sobriety. I have a long and messy drinking career behind me after finally getting the help I needed to get and actually stay sober. I have been happily sober since 11/16/2007.

Today Wednesday, 7/15/2015, I am grateful for my health. I have a lot of health problems but I know I could be in much worse shape than I am now. I am profoundly thankful for that!

Today, Tuesday 07/14/2015 I am grateful for being able to learn. I thirst for knowledge daily and I am grateful that I can and for all of the resources at my fingertips.

Today, Monday 7/13/2015 I am grateful to be an American. I have lived in a 3rd world country and I am very grateful to be an American living on American soil. Living here, I was able to get the help I needed for so many years of my life. Honestly, if I had lived in a country where there was not such access to valuable resources I would have committed suicide a long time ago. I have absolutely no question about that. I would have not made it this far in my life. I am profoundly grateful for that.

Today, Sunday 7/12/2015 I am grateful for the Internet. I can do so much because of it plus I learn a lot as well. Learning is like breathing to me; if I can't learn new things I wilt.

Today, Saturday 7/11/2015 I am grateful for COFFEE. As silly as that sounds, I LOVE my coffee and I drink coffee every single day. I am grateful for my caffeine!

Today, Friday 7/10/2015 I am grateful for my life and for where I am today. I have worked very hard to get here and I am optimistic and excited about where I am headed now.
