knowing the difference


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm not what I was, but I can be better than I am now

that I have no power over the way my HP makes things happen but I do have control over how I react to those things

that I chose to react differently yesterday to a situation that once would have caused me to explode in a public tantrum; yesterday, I just walked away from a volatile situation

for my sponsees; they keep me grounded when I feel like flying


To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.
- Bertrand Russell

Keeping my side of the street clean always seems to bring about much better choices.

My tantrums never accomplished much but to make me feel crazy.

You still have separation of church and state over there?

Glad to hear you're doing well.
