busy, busy, busy



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that feeling good (and spiritually fit) is not a trigger for me to lower my standards

for the few (percentage-wise) alkies that make it back to the rooms of AA after relapsing

that I intuitively know how to handle many more situations than I used to (every morning in my first conscious contact with my HP, I ask for the guidance to do the next right thing so that I can be the best I can be. Most of the time, it is no longer necessary for me to have to sit and think what that next right thing is. I just seem to know what to do. If it turns out to be the wrong thing, I have Step 10 to rely on.)

that I have a pretty busy schedule today, so I'm off to the gym in a few minutes to be there when it opens at 5am; I'll end the day at an Astros baseball game tonight

that I love recovery!!


When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard,' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'

Getting old might be hard.
Being young was lots harder.

I like what you do every morning. And that Step 10 is there to rely on. What a great program.

Busy is good, the gym at 5am? That IS motivated!

Life isn't hard. It's just life. How I deal and rspond to life makes it hard at times. Acceptance is the key.
