the difference



just realizing the difference today
concerning the old adage;
"when life gives you lemons..."

in the past it was "just add vodka"!

sure it was the perfect antidote to
shyness, insecurity and fear.
a good buzz made me tougher, boisterous
and totally uninhibited.

sounds pretty enticing right?

well, it was for a long time;
but it slowly morphed into something
ugly, empty and compulsive.

i've accepted my shyness, embraced
having a conscience and enjoy being
friendly rather than confronting.

today when life gives me lemons,
i accept graciously and
add them to green tea.
