Lent season doings.

A gratitude journal, one of those small 3x4 books with the speckled covers, once/twice a day, I'll write out something I'm feeling grateful for.

Bitching & moaning is easy, saying thank you is not a natural thought for me.

1. Excellent plan.

 

Positive thinking and focusing on the benefits of sobriety is an excellent way to stay sober. Good for you. Keep it up one day at a time.

2. I made some progress today

Decided to conquer my fears, one by one. I fought. Tenacious and dedicated.

3. Talking and sharing is the easiest.

Showing up is hard. Walking in the door is hard. Gratitude is a common theme. My fave person at the meeting is everyone.

5. I'm totally unfamiliar with Lent.

Except for self sacrifice.

6. For me and only for me,

As a recovering Catholic, Lent is a period of self reflection and reviews of my state at the moment I wrote it, in an effort to grow closer to the Goddess/Higher Power/God/Great Spirit/however you define your terms. In writing it out, I have a record of my thoughts, needs, wishes at that time. For me, I found it useful in writing out my next 4th Step.
