Adversity


todAAy i AM grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a good night's sleep and waking up with a clear head and a prayer

that the time I used to spend getting drunk is much more productive these days

for some awareness of the things I need to do in order to make friends in sobriety; being a shy, introverted loner with a tendency to isolate, making friends is one of the hardest missions for me to imagine

for those who are willing to put themselves out there, regardless of how unpopular it may make them

for those times when I get into action


Adversity introduces a man to himself.

hee hee love the picture. I'm not afraid of spiders so I would have no problem.
PS: Tried to renew license on line. Was denied. Said I had to show my SS card in person at DMV for renewal now.

I tend to isolate a lot too. I'm not worried too much about having many close friends. Just a few are fine. Hope that you have a good day.
