March 21, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

The First Day of Spring. It's hard to believe when it's 37 degrees in Houston, but I'm going to go ahead and run with it. I'm Grateful that the cold only lasts hours in Houston.

Being Drug Free. I have been working on my pool and I am having an issue where I have a pipe that is struck and I can't get it loose. I threw my back out trying to un-stick it. In the past I would have used the pain as an excuse to do whatever drugs I could to feel better. Now I just take an anti-inflammatory and rest. I don't even have a desire to take the strong stuff.

Looking Onward. As frustrating marketing is for me, I continue onward. I do sometimes feel like throwing in my hat, but I will continue until I build a good, solid client base. That's where I have to understand I can't control anything. It will happen when it happens.

Old Friends. It's interesting to visit with someone you haven't seen in a while once you have become involved in a program like AA. I can hear echos of my old self in his conversations. Ways I use to be and how Grateful I am that I am willing to change. I think in the past, I didn't realize I could change.


  1. Those echoes keep me teachable. I don't ever want to go back to the ungrateful, crazy person I was. I'm happy spring is here too..even if the night time temps still have to catch up.
    Have a lovely day.


  2. Was starting to feel like Spring in Chicago and then we got snow on Saturday. Oh well, I can be grateful for the precipitation, whether it's solid or liquid! Have a good one!!

  3. It was gorgeous here yesterday but rainy today. Still warm. I am happy and content on this day.
