It is garbage pick-up day for my neighborhood. In the Denver metro area (with the exception of Denver proper), trash pick up is something you pay for. My trash removal company picks up on Weds. morning. I am not sure why, but bringing my trash cans out to the curb is something very meaningful to me. But here are some ideas - There is nothing I am ashamed of in the trash, an excess of bottles, cans, etc. I have actually paid my bill, so I am not inching my trash cans towards my neighbors' sidewalks in hopes that it looks like theirs instead of mine. And I actually remember to take my trash out on trash day!
It is just Wednesday. I have an average day planned at work. It is the day before payday, so I am not going out for lunch. I have spent all the money I had intended to spend this month - and more.
"When we developed still more, we discovered the best possible source of emotional stability to be God Himself. We found that dependence upon His perfect justice, forgiveness, and love was healthy, and that it would work where nothing else would. If we really depended upon God, we couldn't very well play God to our fellows nor would we feel the urge wholly to rely on human protetction and care. These were the new attitudes that finally brought many of us an inner strength and peace that could not be deeply shaken by the shortcomings of others or by any calamity not of our own making." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 116
