The Journey Day 74 02.23.20

Day 74. Day 71 of #75HARD. And then there were 5… BUT IT’S JUST LIKE DAY 1 ALL OVER AGAIN!

GRATITUDE.
“Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.”
– Doris Day

NUGGETS. 
Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.
–Hunter S. Thompson

Anything or anyone that asks you to be other than yourself is not holy, but is only trying to fill its own need.

Touch bleeds the heart of its pressure.

As the lungs remember to breathe, even when we sleep, the spirit keeps us alive through the dream of our will.

We are faced with a never-ending choice: to become the wound or to heal.

Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
Got the house refi started yesterday but that was about it. The rest of the chores to do to close this happy crappy chapter remain. Until then, I’ve got to focus on the things that are important to me–like finishing #75HARD and getting The 90-Day Burn, #90DB, off to a healthy start next.
