March 13, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Friday, March 13, 2015

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

I have a new philosophy. I’m only going to dread one day at a time.
 — Charles Schulz

Living one day at a time is a big project. Most of us have just enough faith, patience, and courage to last 24 hours. We all seem to be in need of a daily refueling.

Living in today helps keep our lives balanced and simple. At first, we may need to practice staying in the present. We may find that we need to keep bringing ourselves back to today from yesterday or tomorrow.

There is nothing that will happen today that we can’t, with God’s help, manage.

Today let me keep my feet firmly planted in the bedrock of the present, my only reality.
