It's all about Attitude!

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have had an attitude of gratitude since the day I got sober and it just keeps on growing

that I am (slowly) learning to react in different ways to the same situations 

for a 10-minute talk with a recovery friend whom I haven't had a chance to speak with over the last couple of years.  I swear, it was as good as a 1-hour meeting.

for some ever-lengthening sober history.  It actually seems weird to think this.

Whenever you're in conflict with someone,there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. 
That factor is attitude.
- William James

I love it when I speak to a recovery friend and feel as though I've been to a meeting!!

I have loved to read your daily writings for a lot of your sobriety.
