A Week of Gratitude - Day 6

A man needs self-acceptance or he can't live with himself; he needs self-criticism or others can't live with him.
~James A. Pike
Today I am grateful that in recovery I am learning:

~ about myself

~ how to detach with love

~ about acceptance

~ how to apply the 12 Steps to all areas of my life

~ how to love and accept myself

~ how to forget myself in order to serve others without expecting anything in return

~ for giving me a direct path to God

I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, while the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. ~Isaac Newton


  1. Being grateful is an awesome feeling! Hope you have a relaxing and restful weekend.....

  2. Love that quote. There is still much to discover within.

  3. Gratitude...hopefully rhymes with Attitude.

    You choose your quotes WELL, Marie, and I am going through your week of gratefulness with you. Amazing how much we become thankful for, when we can finally SEE what God has done/is doing for us.

    We ARE on the same pages, girl!


Thank you for sharing!
