Day 13: One Thing


I read somewhere that AA advises you “change one thing” when you are struggling. I think it’s great advice. My one thing today is this fun photo of tonight’s “replacement drink.”

The drink is quite nice and sort of fancy – peach and passion fruit juice with tonic and a lemon. Garnishes make everything better, don’t you think?

But figuring out how to take a photo of it, and the end result, gave me just the little bit of joy I needed today. πŸ™‚ Silly, I know.


Another little gem is this quote which turned up on my Facebook page tonight:

“Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.”

Love love love this.


And I guess that makes two things. πŸ˜‰

  1. Your post made my day! I love the photo of your drink. I needed the wisdom of “change one thing” this evening. I was missing my wine tonight. But I always enjoy my evening replacement drink, and I will look forward to trying yours. πŸ™‚
    The sun/shadow quote feels just right too. Thanks for sharing.
    I worked as a teacher for a long time. I know the stresses (and joys) the work brings. I work from home now, but I sure remember that feeling of diving back in!
    I will be sending happy thoughts your way tomorrow… Or perhaps that was today!


  2. I love this advice. It really puts things in perspective. I’m one who tends to throw the baby at with the bath water, so to speak. I’ll remember this when things get rough. Just change one thing πŸ™‚
