"The problem is not that there are problems.
The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem." -- Theodore Rubin
"Problems are good, not bad. Welcome them and become the solution. When you have solved enough problems, people will thank you."
-- Mark Victor Hansen
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I have very few problems today
that most of the problems I have today are high-class ones
that someone needed to "vent" about their relationship yesterday in the midday AA meeting; that person has one month in the program, in their mid-20's, and is in an abusive relationship. She does not yet understand that she's most likely going to have to let that person go their own way. Certainly at this point, sobriety must come first, no matter what it may take or look like.
That concept will serve her well for a lifetime.
that my new gym opened yesterday. It's new, spacious, smells good and has brand new equipment.
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
