todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I am just a drunk. I could have been a drug addict but I stopped using narcotics as a teenager because I actually realized how dangerous they were and that I liked them too much. I tried cocaine a few times as an adult but never even got a buzz. I have yet to try any of the new, designer drugs.
that I'm just an ordinary drunk. I don't have to point out when sharing in a meeting that I'm a real alcoholic.
that I don't need to be popular. But I'll admit that I like to be liked.
Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness ... letting go of the past, and correcting our misperceptions.
