What are you thankful and greatful for?
One thing I have been doing every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to bed and anytime I feel crappy about soething in general! Is to list all the thing I am greatful for. I have always been an extremely greatful person. Despite the hardships i have ffaced in my life i still consider myself extremely lucky. Even when I was homeless and couldnt afford to eat. I do however spend a lot of time thinking about what i am not. I am incredibly hard on myself and this mindset is paralyzing. It cripples me and causes me a great deal of distress! I fight it every second of every day and it is the war i have never been able to win. The hardest war of all! The wall against myself! But one tool in my arsenal @theflow.zone
has taught me is to be greatful. But not just greatful... to take the time each day to pay tribute and thanks to those things. I have noticed it takes just a few minutes but can significantly increase the impact. It gives that gratitude time to sink in. It takes longer to write than to just think of in passing. Its also an easy daily habbit and ritual i ccan add into my days. Routine is so vitally important to recovery. I struggle never feeling like i am doing ebnough. But functioning is a muscle you can train. This daily gratitude list is not only training that muscle, but starting the day off with a positive mindset and an I CAN DO IT attitude. Everytime I find myself loosing it, i take a deep breath, force myself to smile and remind myself of everything i am greatful for. I force myself. I even pay thanks to a piece of northies dog hair on my black jeans. To all 1 trillion of them in fact. They are a reminder of my beautiful dog. WIthout them, their would be no him. there is no end to the things you have to be greatful for, nothing is too small, too stupid. Simply changing the way you look at the world can make a massive difference. What are you greatful for ?
