“What’s up everybody? This is Tim, with www.Sobernation.com. What we’re doing, we’re starting this video series where every week, or every two weeks, or however long we do this; we’re going to talk to different people with different perspectives, different experts in the field of recovery and bring up different subjects so that we can get a bunch of different points of view.
Where we’re going to start, since I am going to start this, my favorite subject to talk about is definitely gratitude because when I think of gratitude I always think of perspective.
You can take a situation, look at it from the point of view of all the things that you don’t have, and you can take that same situation and look at it from the point of view of all the things that you do have and it completely flips your perspective on life and your outlook depending on how you perceive it.
So gratitude, I think that’s really what its all about. I think that’s why they say that a grateful addict wont pick up, because he or she is happy and content with everything that he has and is able to see the positive side and is able to appreciate what hes got.
No matter where you are in life you might not have everything that you want but you always have more than somebody else and there’s somebody else with less than you that is grateful for what they got.
So I’m definitely interested to hear your guys point of view. Don’t forget to leave your mentions in the comments I wanna hear what you guys have to say. We’re going to start this, we are going to see how this shit goes. So… like I said my name’s Tim. Sobernation.com. Look forward to hearing your response.”
