Gratitude List


1st Column:  What are you grateful for in the relationship with yourself?

One thing every day for 90 days.
Sample:  In my relationship with myself I am grateful for my health..

2nd Column:  What are you grateful for in the relationship with my addict in recovery.
One thing every day for 90 days.
Sample:  In my relationship with Sam I am grateful that he is in AA.

3rd Column:  What are you grateful for in general?

Five things every day for 90 days.
Sample:  Today I am grateful for having God in my life.
               Today I am grateful for my Al-Anon program.
               Today I am grateful for my life.
               Today I am grateful for my family.
               Today I am grateful for my serenity.

Do this exercise every day for 90 days.  After 90 days you will have a list of 630 things that you are indeed grateful for and you will also have started to really appreciate everything in your life.   Never duplicate anything.  I guarantee that you will feel a shift in your behaviors and attitudes.

Gratitude makes us more patient, kinder and humble people.

It’s my experience that gratitude helped me to finally do my third step and that is to surrender my will and my life over to the care of God as I understood him.

(I was on my fourth step, when I started the gratitude list, and finally when I was in the middle of my Step 6 – I became humble enough to step out of my will and let my Higher Power take over my kids and my problems and also I could go on to the next Step 7 and humbly ask Him to remove all my defects of character).
