a simple guy with complicated thoughts

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for people who think outside the box -- they can be a great inspiration to me

that AA birthday night @ Lambda Center is so well attended -- this month, we had 31 celebrants with 314 years of sobriety

that recovery allows me to pretty much overlook those who don't like me and those who treat me with disdain (I think it's more about them than it is about me)

that being my best seems to get easier the more I practice it

All we have to decide is what to do with the time we are given.

I honestly cannot imagine someone not liking you or treating you with disdain.

There seems to be a theme in all of the posts I'm reading this morning. A message from the Universe?

Thank you dAAve...

Anyone who treats you with disdain is just jealous of your cars.

What's going on in TX? The cherry blossoms here look beautiful, but my allergies are in full bloom, too. It's better than waking up with DT's, though.

I am still learning to overlook the slights that I perceive. I know that I have been overly sensitive in the past. I'm glad to let that stuff go and pray to love those with whom I have difficulty.
314 years is a lot of time.

I love your gratitude this AM. Thanks for the reminder that's it's more about them than it is about me!
Have a great day!

Thanks for the gratitude. How do you type from that yoga pose, though?

Being a pacifist, I have my own ideas about Peeps who are not nice.

dAAve, tell me WHO doesn't like you and WHO treats you with disdain.
