I did not write this but found it on the internet and thought it was so beautiful!

A professor gave a balloon to every student. He asked them to inflate it, write their name on it and then throw it in the hallway.

The students were then given 5 minutes to find their own balloon. Despite the hectic search no one found their balloon.

At that point, the professor told the students to take the first balloon they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it.

Within 5 minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The professor then told the students: “These balloons are like happiness. We will never find it if we are looking for our own. But if we care about other people’s happiness, we will find ours too.”

**** A moment to wish a beautiful woman named Kay – a Happy Anniversary! She has remained sober for 43 years TODAY!! Thank you for paving the way for so many of us and being such a dear close friend to me. I love you 🙂

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  1. Liked the little anecdote. (In way fewer words) For a long time been encouraging this work. Congrats to K and of course, to you. Go the distance! And (in one of many ways Espie would say it), “Smile on someone; you’ll both feel better!”
