Gratitude (again)

"Sometimes I feel as if life is prodding me, poking me, pushing me. It hurts sometimes. But then I think ' Oh, I get it. I'm not supposed to ignore the pain. Pain can motivate me to change.'"
Prayer: Guide me into taking the action you want me to take.

Melody Beattie. 52 Weeks of Conscious Contact.

I had a friend in the program who was a gratitude junkie. He talked about being grateful for the people who made it possible for him to have a hot shower in the morning, the people who gathered the ingredients for his food and so on. He also used to say that we were not living in a box in Calcutta, and we should be grateful for that since there was no particular reason why we shouldn't have been born there instead of here. Taking the action to be grateful especially when things are not going quite right (in my opinion) is one of my favorite tools of the program. Today I am grateful for the cooler weather. It didn't even wait until September. I love fall.
