that I was told to change people, places and things when I was first getting sober.
... people. check
... places. check
... things. what the hell are things?
that I often get to do things my way. Then I pay the consequences.
that I do my best to always stay positive. Things can always be worse.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though chequered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory or defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt
