I am an April fool

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I got past the need to go to bars. It took about 9 months of sobriety, but it happened. Naturally. I just got tired of being sober around a bunch of drinking people. I know a lot of people in "recovery" who still frequent the bars. From time to time, I hear about one of them relapsing. It's never a surprise.

that doing things differently results in different things happening

that sometimes I even listen to my own advice!

that my Houston Astros begin their season today which will end at the end of September. This team is not likely to make any playoffs in October. But they're my team and I follow them in the bad times as well as the good.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

Doing things differently is a good thing. I wonder why it took me so long to realize that works with people too.

bars would be a real fun place to go if they weren't filled with people drinking! GO ASTROS!

I went back to one of my old haunts for some occasion... A wake or something... And I couldn't wait to get out of there... Drunks are only fun when you're drunk too... It's one of Murphy's Laws of Drinking.

I love that I have the option to do something differently, it's a gift.

Have a great weekend!

For over 10 years I was an addict and needed bipolar rehabilitation help. When I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.
