March 24, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: A Day at a Time

A Day at a Time

Reflection for the Day
All of us are faced with the troubles and problems of daily living, whether we’ve been in The Program two days or 20 years. We’d sometimes like to believe we could take care of all our problems right now, but it rarely works that way. If we remember the slogan “Easy Does It” when we are ready to panic, we may come to know that the very best way to handle all things is “Easy.” We put one foot in front of the other, doing the best we are capable of doing. We say, “Easy Does It,” and we do it.

Are The Program’s slogans growing with me as I grow with The Program?

Today I Pray
May even the words “Easy Does It” serve to slow me down in my headlong rush to accomplish too much too fast. May just the word “Easy” be enough to make me ease up on the whips that drive my ambitions, ease up on the accelerator which plunges me into new situations without enough forethought, ease off the number of hours spent in material pursuits. May I hark to the adage that Rome wasn’t built in a single day. Neither can I build solutions to my problems all at once.

Today I Will Remember
Easy Does It.
