A farewell and a new friend

This morning on our way to Philly we had a stopover and as we landed at San Fransisco International SFO we had the honor of seeing United’s last 747 on the tarmac before it’s final farewell flight today from San Fransisco to Hawaii.

I love 747s and thankfully have flown several of them over the years. Godspeed my friend.

Then after arriving in Philly we, Fearsome & meself, had the greater honor of re-uniting with an old friend and meeting a new one face to face for the first time. It’s been a wonderful day.

Six years

Six years ago today I woke up a broken man. A man that didn’t yet know that he was about to go 2192 days without a hangover. A man that had no idea what lied ahead only that I could no longer live as I had been living.

Today I woke up and received this six year token for living six full years of uninterrupted reality. I am humbled.

May tomorrow be day 2193.

Reflections on 5 years

“Sobriety”

Interesting word. Clearheaded state of being. Has many interpretations. Isn’t for everyone. Is wonderful for me.

My 5 year token

My 5 year token

My sobriety date is 7 November 2011. That was my first day without drugs or alcohol.

I haven’t used recreational substances since that date. I’m one of those who cannot use any. I can’t stop once I start. I tried moderation. I tried different substance. I tried different drinks. I tried controlling. I tried limiting. I tried period. I’d try then I couldn’t stop until I was sick, passed out, blacked out, injured, embarrassed, in trouble, lost, confused, missed work, lapsed responsibility …I couldn’t stop. I’d lost me.

Not everyone is like me. I found others like me that were not drinking. They weren’t drugging either. Things were working for them. I decided to try what they were doing. It worked for me. Not drinking worked for me. Alcohol was my mind altering drug of choice, the others were auxiliary enhancements. I don’t need them and I not longer drink.

There are many ways for people to live their lives. I’ve found a way that works for me. I celebrate the anniversary of making that discovery today. I celebrate five years of living one day at a time unaltered and sober. I like being this way. I actually enjoy hanging with my friends who do drink and those who don’t. I keep booze in my house for those who do drink and they keep Juice and club soda in their house for me.

I live life in a world of diversity. This beautiful life in this beautiful world. I love my life.

The next level

Fearsome and I are believers. We believe that as long as we are growing we are living and living well. We also believe that if we stop growing we start dying. Therefore we can occasionally be found at a seminar, reading something inspirational or simply on the phone with our business coach. Yes we have a coach. Coaches give us accountability and guidance to help us reach our goals.

Last week we attended Brian Buffini’s Mastermind Summit and had the pleasure of being photographed with none other than….

When we are ready, the teacher will appear. When we are ready the message will resonate with us.

What message resonated with me at this place in my time and space? Perspective.

From speaker Andy Andrews: Perspective….our thinking determines our choices, but we choose how we think. “Perspective can radically change results without ever changing fact.”

Our take is simply this: How can we move on and get to the next level when we feel stuck? Change our perspective. How do we do that? Starting with gratitude we can open our minds to the possibilities around us. Once we are open we can see opportunity or at least start moving in a positive direction until an opportunity arises. Then all we must do is act, work, share, give, learn, grow and be even more grateful.

“Life itself is a privilege, but to live that life to the fullest….well, that is a choice.” Andy Andrews
