November is Gratitude Month
For many decades now, we in the Fellowship have formally carved out from the calendar, the month of November, as a time to express our collective gratitude for our individual sobriety. Interestingly, no one is exactly sure why November was chosen.
Typically a journal is kept (or phone app), each day taking the time to mentally take a break and physically writing or typing your thoughts. The key is to always try to think of something new as your answer; to dig deep into all that you are grateful for.
