    This is long, but I just wanted to share it with you my sister, God bless and happy New Year. Wayne. W.O.W. 101

    There are some people that I'm in awe of. They are always in a good mood and always have something positive to say. My ex Mother in Law is one of these people I have had the fortune of having in my life. Every time I would ask her how she was doing, she would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!" She was a natural spiritual motivator. While visiting her one of many times my son was having a particular negative and all around bad day. I was beside myself on how to handle him. She asked me if she could have a talk with him and I said a definite, "YES." I watched her go to him as I had seen her do with so many others around her and with her amazing grace and humbleness she started quietly talking with him. I could not hear what she was saying but within minutes he immediately became calmer and went about his day with a positive outlook and seemed to be glowing the rest of that day and many more days after that.
    Having a particular bad day myself once I finally went to her and in and almost in tears said to her, " I don't get it! You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it? What's your secret of being such a positive person every day?"She replied to me, "There's no secret Hon, each morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood. So every day I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens in my life I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone complains I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life.
    "Choose the positive side of life every day? Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested. "
    Yes, it is,"She said."Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to all situations.
    You can choose how people affect your mood. You can choose to be in a good mood or a bad mood. The bottom line is it's your choice how you live your life."
    I have reflected on what she shared with me many days since then.
    I think of her often sometimes daily especially when I've not made a positive choice upon wakening. I often start my days over during the day as did my son that day and make a choice about living a positive day and then I act in life instead of reacting to it. I then remember that I do have the choice to live fully. Thank you God for giving me the gift of choice. Thank God for my Ex Mother in Law who taught me how to live. Attitude, after all, is everything. "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
    Each day has enough troubles of its own." After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

    A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side."

    Very quietly, the doctor said, "I don't know."

    "You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?"

    The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side of which came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing...I know my Master is there and that is enough.

    you post to hippie girl was awesome. i wrote most of it out on the inside cover of the notebook i am using for this fourth step at 20 years because it was so concise and accuate a depiction of the whole ball of wax. a great message to the newcomer i think. even though the sentiments are describing the backbone of the program as we hear it over and over, it was just so well put, i have to tip my hat to you. thanks so much. bob

    A long time since I posted here. A special hello to all my friends and to our guests too if this is visible to them.

    Just trying to relax, not sure if I can read and really don't want to go to bed at the moment. Posting is a sure fire way of getting me centered and putting me in a place that I need to be.

    Blessing to all.



    Love Always,

    Jo
