The power of "Thank you!"

When I don't want to say it....

When I am full of raging anger....

That's within me....

And mine to deal with....


Thank you

Flowing from my mouth....

Beyond me own reasoning....

Allows for HEALING, abundance and self-compassion....

I didn't realize I so desperately needed.

The HEALING power of "Thank you" has been huge in my recovery from this family disease of alcoholism.

A friend of mine with strong recovery in both AA and Alanon kindly listened to my frustrations regarding interactions with other Alanon members who were "trying" to be helpful, yet I was getting triggered. Then he suggested to simply say, "Thank you."

Once I started doing this, the results have been extraordinary. Especially with my close friends and family.

I am grateful. I am thankful. In that... everything changes.

I am no longer a doormat. I know my own voice and can use it. I no longer tolerate any kind of abuse.

I can walk away... create safe spaces for myself to heal in...

And as I interact with others... I can now graciously say, "Thank you."
