Feb. 29, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Monday, Feb. 29, 2016

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

Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.
 — Faith Baldwin

We are learning as we go, and the experiences shed light on our own plans for proceeding. The steps we are taking in unison as well as on separate but parallel paths enhance the particular movements of us all.

We often expect perfection from ourselves, forgetting that we’re all beginners in life. The best we can do is willingly acknowledge our errors, grateful that we can always begin again on any task – grateful that we have the experiences of others to help guide us.

Life is process. We learn, we grow, share burdens, reformulate ideas, and restructure our values. Every change we make alters the steps we take, altering in turn someone else’s movements, too.
