Gratitude is an Attitude

Today is the day to start. To start living in the present. To stop living in regrets and mistakes of your past or future. To let go of old resentments that keep you from breathing fully. From fulfilling your destiny.

County your blessings.

Just forgive.

Just let go.

And, for something that sustains you and form relationships that do the same.

Barely There Blues

If you are troubled by some of this dark early and dawn late kind of weather, try to add some new things to your routine, you may also be finding yourself wondering why it is you gave up your drug of choice.

After all, using wasn't always fun. It was also a reason to "escape" discomfort and, most certainly, to escape the blues.

The fact that is caused blues that would rival any tsunami was beside the point, because, after all, it did temporarily remove the pain.

So, for today, think about what it is you can do to replace that self-soothing tactic. Think about what will "feed" you instead of deplete you more. Think of what will make you more alive and able to embrace the reality of this time of year. You might just find that means doing something for someone else.

Learn to Say Please and Thank You

How many times have you demanded something in your addiction...whether it be more boos, more attention, more money or more time off.

That sense of entitlement is not only what got you sick, but, more importantly, what kept you there.

It is amazing how when we let others know we appreciate their help and that we don't feel it is ours for the taking, they actually want to help us.

Just for Today, don't take advantage of anyone else's generosity. And, remember, to always thank others when they offer you help.
