Mike posted something i really liked and wanted all to see

"ps I have been on both sides almost destitute and had a few dollars to be comfortable and have what I want. I find it does not matter what you have or can have if you are unhappy you are unhappy thats it. Happiness is in the inside not on the outside. Today I can't have everything I want and thats all right I dont give a shlt at all. I want happiness contentment peace a good nights sleep like the normal people on the earth." Mike

My first 4 days were rough but when I woke up from the little sleep I had gotten, I truly that morning felt better.  I went to the zoo that day and walked about 5 miles in 4 hours, not hard exercise but I stretched my legs say the least...I find myself enjoying life and knowing that if I ever pick up again even if it is 1 month, 1 year, or 10 years later I will pick up right where I left off.  Mike I hope you keep it up I am comparing my sobriety next to yours cause I always get in on your posts too.  Keep it up man we got ya.

This was a reply to that lady posting saying she is about to start detoxing and has some financial issues as well. You all should go drop her a message. I'll get the heading.

ditto- "things don't create happiness and if they do it's very short lived. it's easy to be "happy"  when everything is going good,the $ is in the bank, everyones healthy etc..But much harder when it's not going good. I think that a lack of being unthankful for what we do have etc..contributes to unhappiness.. I have met people with way worse going on that are the happiest people i know..Which is why i decided..drama,trauma,etc..isn't bringing this girl down!!!

and HUMOR---what great stuff... we gotta learn to laugh at ourselves once in awhile..right Mike..lol
