The Journey Day 63 02.12.20

Day 63. Day 60 of #75HARD. Cranky. Frustrated. Ill. Just basically foul. But nobody asked, so suck it up, buttercup, we’ve got another day ahead of us.

GRATITUDE.
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
– Oprah Winfrey

Thank you, Oprah. You know what you’re talking about.

NUGGETS. 
Before fixing what you’re looking at, check what you’re looking through.

As long as we see what has come to pass as being unfair, we’ll be a prisoner of what might have been.

The greatest defense is being who you are.

And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk to bloom.
— Anais Nin

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
Well, let’s see what we’ve got in the hopper today… going to the lawyer’s office to start the divorce paperwork with the spouse. That ought to be fun… begin the beguine… Then there’s work.
