rationalizing



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I've been sober for 2345 consecutive days

that it's getting harder and harder to justify/rationalize to be less than I can be

that I can't justify/rationalize suspending my goal of being the best I can be just so I can teach somebody a lesson; that may sound silly, but it's been a lifelong pasttime of mine

for the companionship of my cats

that I'm not a Toyota owner/driver or stockholder

Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.

Every time I get really steamed up about my VW, I think about the Toyota situation and suddenly there is proportion. So sad. Have a good day David.

I guess if I painted portraits I would be concerned you might see too much of me.

My cats were on my back last night--literally. They are funny animals.

I understand about the justifying stuff in order to teach a lesson. Yes, I am that nuts. It makes sense in my head. I don't listen to that part of my head much anymore thanks to Alanon.
