Day 70. Day 67 of #75HARD. And then there were 9…
“Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.”
– Lucius Annaeus Seneca
So often we imagine that There is more full of gold than Here. It is the same with love and dreams and the work of our lives. We see the light everywhere but where we are, and chase after what we think we lack, only to find, humbly, it was with us all along.
We need to stay current with each other.
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These are your greatest treasures. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are.
LIke the moon, come out from behind the clouds! And shine!

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
I was on Twitter this morning between 5:30-6:30 am and absolutely could not believe all the negativity–especially right before I was about to head off to work and do my thing. The first reaction was “I don’t need this shit…” The second was, “maybe there’s some opportunity here.” I’ve been looking for the best way to launch our Mission message of “encouraging sobriety, achievement, and healing.” Maybe the AM Twitter slot is the best spot to start. A little encouragement may go a long way… or I may be throwing pearls before swine. TBD.
