Today I am grateful for people with whom I can share recovery from alcoholism and for opportunities to problem-solve with a clear head (or at least a fairly clear one).

Yesterday's take on scatter was a problematic scattered mind that needed to be reigned in. Today's take on scatter sounds like this:

"It is not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of life you have lived." 

At our core, humans hope to leave a mark and make a difference. That is done more by giving than receiving. Today, I will strive to give kindness and support, smiles and encouragement. To others, but also to myself.

Receiving has a part too, an important one. We can scatter humility and gratitude by receiving graciously and/or courageously whatever is being doled out. And also by gratefully receiving the goodness others are scattering.

Scatter gratitude and kindness.
Scatter pauses and moments to reflect.


  1. So very well said. I always say that it doesn't cost anything to be kind. I need to remind myself to pause and reflect!

    1. And when I am able to pause and reflect, I calm down, which makes it easier for me to be kind. :-) We are all a work in progress aren't we? Thanks Lana!
