IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Very little is needed to make a happy life. It is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. ~Marcus Aurelius
Today I am grateful...
  • for the program of recovery that saved my life
  • for yesterday's glorious rain
  • to hear a bit of acceptance from someone who has struggled to stay sober
  • that I met a cute Scott yesterday
  • for the chance to see Pam Saturday night
  • for the recent passion to paint and create. For years I only created in spurts, but in sobriety I have created more than the previous 49 years!
Many of us cling to our fears, doubts, self-loathing, or hatred because there is a certain distorted security in familiar pain. It seems safer to embrace what we know than to let go of it for the unknown. ~Narcotics Anonymous

yesterdays' rain flooded my street, I had a grand time sloshing around in it. Hope Bunny is better. See ya tomorrow..yahoo

I go for the familiar pain of doing the same stupid thing over nearly every time instead of the unfamiliar pain of trying something new. I have been in tremendous pain lately - the pain of trying to do things differently. It continues to amaze me how hard this actually is!
