Oct. 12, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: A Day at a Time

A Day at a Time

Monday, Oct. 12, 2015 

Reflection for the Day

Many people we meet in The Program radiate a kind of special glow – a joy for living that shows in their faces and very bearing. They’ve put aside alcohol and other mood-altering chemicals where they’re “high” on life itself. Their confidence and enthusiasm are contagious – especially to those who are new in The Program. The astonishing thing to newcomers is that those same joyous people also were once heavily burdened. The miracle of their before-and-after stories and new outlook is living proof that The Program works. 

Does my progress in The Program serve to carry the message to others? 

Today I Pray

I pray that my own transformation through The Program – from burdened to unburdened, beaten down to upbeat, careless to caring, tyrannized by chemicals to chemically free – will be as much inspiration for newcomers as the dramatic changes in others’ lives have been for me. May I – like those other joyous ones in the fellowship – learn how to be “high on life.” 

Today I Will Remember

Life is the greatest “high” of them all.
