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

Ah, but if you have no expectations, You can never have a disappointment. ~Stephen Joshua Sondheim
Today I am grateful...
  • for my sponsor who lines up things in such a natural way and allows me to see my own stuff as he guides me with his gentle spirit
  • that although I am disappointed that none of the three pieces I submitted to an important show were accepted, I have the experience
  • that if I am going to succeed then I have to put myself out there
  • that life in sobriety has brought me such few disappointments
  • that my Higher Power has given me talents
  • that the first cut is the deepest, the others won't seem so bad
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try. ~Beverly Sills

Of course, there will be disappointments along the way. Such is the fabric of life. This one blind-sided me.
