WED


the Jacuzzi




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that yesterday was a day for dAAve -- I had a 1 1/2 hour workout at the gym with my trainer, I had a session with my shrink and I attended 2 AA meetings. Physical, Mental and Spiritual healing.

for the return of a friend to the rooms of AA; he's been out for the past 7 months with short stays in jail and a psych ward. I think he's afraid of the next stop if he doesn't get sober.

that I never was hospitalized for my alcoholism; I compromised instead and went to an AA meeting
for stupid jokes

EXCELLENCE

"The noblest search is the search for excellence."
-- Lyndon B. Johnson

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
-- Aristotle

"Excellence is a better teacher than mediocrity. The lessons of the ordinary are everywhere. Truly profound and original insights are to be found only in studying the exemplary."
-- Warren G. Bennis

"Do what you love, love what you do, and deliver more than you promise."
– Harvey Mackay
