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.

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!
