A New Day for Gratitude


Each of these new days is an opportunity to make choices. What thoughts do I choose to entertain and allow to linger today?

Will today be coloured by what’s wrong in the world and my life or what’s right.

What I worry about or what I am grateful for?

What is in the present or what’s in the past which is gone or the future which is just imagination?

I read the news and I felt sad about those shootings, and I accepted that and let it go.

Here are things I can change and those I can’t, and no point in lingering in the latter.

Today I choose abundance and thanks.

  • I am healthy and well
  • My son is healthy and well and doing what he loves
  • The dog is happy, healthy and well !
  • I enjoying this alcohol free experiment and not feeling the need to squelch down anxiety.
  • Because the anxiety has subsided considerably, that I’m very grateful to be free from. I wonder if even a few drinks could have caused it
