JOURNAL ENTRY: Thursday 19 May 2016

There is so much to be grateful for today…

I am grateful for my ever improving health – as it says in the CoDA version of the serenity prayer ‘Grant me patience with the changes that take time‘.

I am grateful for my recovery buddies, both through the 12 Step Fellowships and here in the WP Community.

I am grateful for my ever increasing serenity – as I continue to meditate, so the gap between me and my thoughts and feelings increases. I have hope that I can cure myself of my mental illnesses through careful self examination and self correction.

I am grateful to have met up with my father today – it really did feel like CoDA promise #8: I learn that it is possible to mend – to become more loving, intimate and supportive. I have the choice of communicating with my family in a way which is safe for me and respectful of them.

I am grateful for my local church community, particularly our alpha group that met again this evening to begin a Life Worth Living. Through the support and spiritual stewardship over the last 4 months, I have learnt how to pray for myself and for others.

I am grateful for prayer and meditation.

I am grateful that I have been able to take a step back from the events of last night and to realise that not all problems need to be solved by me and not all problems need to be solved NOW. I am beginning to understand that only God knows the entirety of the plan and that I am NOT always required to intervene.

Today I am grateful to be alive, so today has been a good day and for that I am grateful.

My prayer for today is that I ask for the wisdom to know the difference between right and wrong, good and bad. I ask for the wisdom to know the difference between the truth and the lie.
