Looking Up

October 29, 2015 1:59 am


It is Fall in Nebraska.

When I was drinking I lived in a world that consisted of looking at the tops of my shoes and never, EVER looking up.


When I was newly sober, it was suggested to me to look up.   This is a suggestion that I have never forgotten and utilize frequently.

This is what Fall looks like in the Mid-West when I look up:


Try looking up.  It is amazing what is all around us!

At home.  On the Central Coast of California.

It has been a long time….

The longest that I have been gone in over a decade.

Everything is just as I remember, but it all seems smaller.  My home, the town, the streets, our garden….  The summers of my entire childhood were spent here…  I feel like I belong.

I am grateful for the time that has passed and all that has changed in my life….  Most of all I am grateful to return and see that it is all the same.


Thought For The Day….

Keeping It Simple with my Thought For the Day:

Try to focus on what I AM doing rather than on what I am NOT doing……

Now apply to life.

It is the little “wins” doing things for others and being of service.

Have a great weekend!
