What's for Dinner? GRATITUDE!


Let's get right to the meat of this post: GRATITUDE!!!
Keep a journal, daily, weekly, whatever it takes. Writing your thoughts down is better than just thinking them. The physical act reinforces the thought. You're on your way to behavior change without even realizing it!
Your physical, mental and overall recovery health will improve. If you don't like it, "we will gladly refund your misery," as I've heard said in Recovery Meetings.
15 seconds, 15 minutes, go at your own pace. 15 hours? lol I'm not there yet!
Taking the time to take your time will increase your powers of mental focus. It's no hocus-pocus. An attitude of gratitude will fill you like a good Thanksgiving Dinner. 
Gratitude is gravy. Ladle it generously!
Gratitude will calm you down, maybe even lower your blood pressure and heart rate. 
Be a Grateful Caregiver. Share the wealth of gratitude you have. It will multiply. "Silent gratitude isn't very much use to anyone." - Gertrude Stein
Addiction is draining. Gratitude is healing.
Be Grateful that this post isn't one word longer.
Damn it! I'm a Grateful Liar.
Gratitude is Recovery's Fire.
