Nov. 9, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Monday, Nov. 9, 2015

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


You cannot build a house or a life without some foundation. While we were still drinking or using drugs, it seemed our lives could not change. There was no foundation to build on. We had no working principles in our lives. We found we could not become the good things we wanted to become.

Until we quit drinking or using, we didn’t know that there was a way we could make ourselves, one day at a time, into the kind of person we could accept. But the Steps and the fellowship make personality change possible.

How have I changed?

Higher Power, let me be willing to love myself and live myself into a new life, one day at a time, based on honesty, open mindedness, and willingness.
