fear vs courage




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that fear is only paper thin

that many of my fears are only in my head and turn out to be little or nothing at all

that my biggest fear today is that I will stop wanting this good life and allow my thinking to revert to the old days. Because of this, I must constantly stay on top of this thing.

that courage is no longer in a bottle, can or joint


It takes courage to show your dreams to someone else.

Fear for me would be having that book shelf in my house.

Are those guys "staying on top of this thing?" well, except for the guy on the bottom...

dAAve, WHERE do you find this stuff?? lol

sobriety (at least I belive) is fragile and I MUST guard against my "default" position of thinking, which tends to be negative, self-centered and ungrateful. That will take me back out there.

constant contact with my HP and the fellowship of AA seem to keep that from happening to me.

There is a recovery joint called Lambda Center that works pretty well.

Face Everything And Recover (fear). I could stare at that bookshelf for hours. Very cool!

Now I'm wondering if those shelves are adjustable.

GREAT pic! I might prefer the more female model- is it IKEA?

I am hoping for paper thin fear today.

I'm coming up for air, and to wave "HELLO!"

Hey :-)

I'm an atheist with 17 years sobriety under my belt.

I wouldn't recomend my way, but it has worked for me.

Good luck in your journey !
