Gratitude Tuesday Template (GXX, X-XX-XX)


At 7am I seek to be grateful by understanding that Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. “Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”―Dalai Lama XIV





At 8 am I seek to be grateful by recognizing the miracle of life, that I am able to experience compassion, forgiveness, love, and gratitude, the emotions that make my life worth living. “The miraculous wonder of this blessed day is beyond my comprehension.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita



At 9 am, as I seek to be grateful in life, I realize true comfort is to be found in the balance and sanity of abstinence. True comfort for me is waking up with that clean, happy feeling, knowing I was abstinent the day before. ”Sophrosyne—a healthy state of mind, characterized by self-control, moderation, and a deep awareness of one’s True Self, and resulting in true happiness.”



At 10 am the Gratitude I feel is limitless. “Gratitude also opens your eyes to the limitless potential of the universe, while dissatisfaction closes your eyes to it.”― Stephen Richards



At 11 am, as I seek to be grateful in life, my eyes begin to open and I see how much depends on my point of view: my own wrong habits of thinking and acting must be corrected and only I can do that. “Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”—Albert Einstein



At Noon, as I seek to be grateful in life, I know it is within my power to brighten my day and the day of others with the light of understanding and gratitude. “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”—William Arthur Ward



At 1 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I pray to learn to enjoy the good that each day brings and not to be apprehensive about the future which is in God’s hands. “True happiness is to enjoy the present without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied, for he that is wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not”–Seneca



At 2 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I realize it is a heartfelt gratitude that I desire. With Jesus in my heart, I acquire a sense of reality, which is absolutely essential to serenity. “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Col. 3:15



At 3 pm, as I seek gratitude in life, I pray realizing that so much has been accomplished. I know that God will continue to provide His light of wisdom in my striving for serenity. “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is to not utter the words, but to live by them.”—John F. Kennedy



At 4 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I realize I have much more to be grateful for than I realize. Through meditation I empty my mind of grievances so that I do not think of them continually and make them bigger than they are. “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”—Melody Beattie




At 5 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, by asking God to make me grateful for all the good things I have been taking for granted. I ask myself the question: “What am I doing with what I got?” “Things turn out best for people for people who make the best out of the way things turned out.”—Pinterest Quote.



At 6 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I realize that if I am truly grateful, I will keep my hands off the recovery program of others. My business is with me and my recovery. “We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”—Fredrick Koeing



At 7 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I turn to God with prayers of gratitude for His wholesome, real and healing force. I pray in distress and need but also in the fullness of my joy! “He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.”—Epictetus



At 8 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I see that I have many reasons for contentment and gratitude. I look, find and relish the pleasant and satisfying things that happen each day. “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”—Thornton Wilder



At 9 pm I seek gratitude by remembering the emotional & Spiritual gifts that God, Al-Anon, AA, OA, ACA and CR have given me and with Gratitude I promise to continue to open myself up to the possibilities of life. “Joy is the simplest
form of gratitude.”—Karl Barth



At 10 pm I thank God for my abstinence and recovery. I ask for help with my abstinence in the day ahead. I offer the day ahead to the service of God. I pray for others, my family and friends and people I have yet to meet and know in life.   “Abstinence from sins is better than seeking help afterwards.”—Ali ibn Abi Talib



At 11 pm, as I seek to be grateful in life, I am thankful to God for transforming my life and my relationships. I turn over the negative aspects of me and life to Him in my God Box, work on reducing my shortcomings and character defects, and simply be clear, present, & abstinent to enjoy the gift of my life experience.   “The more you thank life, the more life gives you to be thankful for.”—Unknown
