Happy Friday, SoberNation!
I’ve been feeling complacent lately. When this happens, I get this feeling in my gut – one that tells me that I need to spend more time away from my phone, the chaos in my mind, and more time with my Higher Power. When this happen’s, I know it’s time to go to my “secret-spot” or my “safe-place.” This place is a labyrinth in the middle of a robust city.
When I go there, the cascading trees seem to act as a ceiling – like nature has created it’s very own dwelling. The stars have a soft glow through the branched sky as to create God’s perfect ambiance. And there I find myself, a speck in the wind, in this giant world. Nonetheless, each time I show up the beauty beyond the trees still remain. If for a second, here, I can just “be.”
What’s your safe spot?
Here’s what you missed this week!

Coffee Is My D.O.C.
