I bought a t-shirt that said that at the round up last night. So funny.
I had a great time last night, I did service at coat check and got to talk to a lot of my AA friends, and even some I didn't know. It was a really cool experience to know people's names and smile at them
I've been very concious lately in trying a new approach with people, dropping judgement, smiling and being nice no matter what. It seems to work, it's a tricky thing here in the city - people don't expect niceness most of the time so it's fun to surprise them.
Anyway - I read this passage in the book I'm reading (Eat.Pray.Love. by Elizabeth Gilbert) and it says:
"You were given life; it is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight"
This is an attitude I can fully support and work with on a day to day basis. It's almost an adventure, finding the beauty in life. When I stop and take the moment to do so, I realize it's all around me.
A part of my Dad's spirit - is a part of mine.
