Oct. 28, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015

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

I often think I’m not doing enough with my life. I paint, I golf, I dabble, but is that enough?
 — Abby Warman

Nobody can answer the question posed by Abby but ourselves. The point is, are we content? If we hesitate even a moment before replying, perhaps we need to reconsider how we’re spending our time.

The solution to fulfillment is simple: Express only love to the others in our lives. It’s not what we do, ever, but how we do it. If focusing on giving only love and acceptance to others gives us pleasure, could we want for anything more?

There is nothing anyone can do that’s more important than helping another person feel loved or forgiven, if that’s called for. Whether we are working or merely at play, our opportunities are unending. We’ll know we have done enough if we have welcomed them.

Today I can offer love to someone quite easily. Both of us will be rewarded.
