Just an average guy ...



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a new sponsee (to me); he had 18 months sober before a recent relapse, so he already knows How It Works (but, back to Step One)

for so many choices today; this morning I chose to be happy

that I had the honor of hearing a wonderful AA speaker on Saturday night

that any new behaviors are not a matter of "trying", but rather a matter of "doing"

that the sheetrock and tile work should be completed this week on my remodelling project (bathroom #2)

that I "cleaned up" my bloglist, eliminating some blogs that are no longer active. Four of them are local friends of mine in recovery. Fortunately, those guys are still sober.

It is sad to me that so many people start blogging and don't stick with it. One day I WILL make it over to your house.

PS I like what you said about doing, instead of trying, and choices today and choosing to be happy hells yea... I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY TOO!

Good luck with the new sponsee.

The fork pic will be blown-up and put on my office wall.

Liked your list. I have chosen to feel many things but feeling happy is relatively new. I'm glad that I know how to feel happy. Thanks for all that you write and for your lucky sponsee.
