Day 98. Yesterday’s volunteer meeting in prison was excellent. Our CoDA group talked about making amends. Often people are not receptive, when we try. When that happens, we should accept that without bitterness. Obtaining a favorable response is not the purpose of making amends.

It turns out that our little actions, all added up together, do make a big difference. If everyone in the United States turned off the water while they brush their teeth, the daily savings could be up to 2.528 billion gallons. That’s more than twice as much water than the entirety of New York City uses in a day.
In this tongue-in-cheek video, a cat shows you how he makes a few tiny changes that have a big impact.
I have to say that cats are the wisest of creatures.
