Day Two





todAAy i AAM grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a quiet first day of the year

(I am at a loss this morning, so here's something we read yesterday in 12&12 study)
"The chief activator of our defects has been self-centered fear -- primarily fear that we would lose something we already possessed or would fail to get something we demanded. Living upon a basis of unsatisfied demands, we were in a state of continual disturbance and frustration. Therefore, we could find no peace unless we could find a means of reducing these demands."
Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 76



There is always a certain peace in being what one is, in being that completely.

years ago, I bought a "face excersie" video. It was the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Oh and I did it for about 4 days before growing bored.

That's great. I don't know what is better, her face or her hair.

Great quote today and one I needed to hear. Thanks Dave.

I'm at a loss, too, especially after viewing that video clip.

I am misreading Pam all over the place. I thought she said she grew a beard (she really said bored). Earlier I thought she said she was barefoot and pregnant.

I am fearful of that woman in the video.

Patty said...

Lou said...
