Gratitude is one of the simplest, yet most effective, recovery tools we have.

Taking the spiritual gifts, necessities, and creature comforts with which we have been blessed for granted, feeling empty and inadequate, and always wanting more, more, more, is a state of being programmed into us by a consumer culture that needs us to be that way in order to exist.

Those of us with mental illness or addiction struggle to function under these conditions without falling prey to the symptoms of our diseases.

Fostering and maintaining an attitude of gratitude is one way we can survive and thrive.
