Daily gratitude 1/2/18

Studying my Buddhist books.

One of them talks about having compassion for others in the world and wishing others only the positive, especially the positive things I have.

So I shall. I wish everyone in my life all things positive. All. No conditions.

I am grateful today for:

* the willingness and tools to deal with my addictions

* the honesty to finally tell my family that *I* am and always was the problem in my own life

* that I remain teachable after all these years of sobriety

* learning to open my heart to be compassionate to others

* squeaky clean abstinence the last five days
