March 2, 2016 – Readings in Recovery: A Day at a Time

A Day at a Time
Wednesday, March 2, 2016
 
Reflection for the Day
Why don’t I spend part of today thinking about my assets, rather than my liabilities? Why not think about victories instead of defeats – about the ways in which I am gentle and kind? It’s always been my tendency to fall into a sort of cynical self-hypnosis, putting derogatory labels on practically everything I’ve done, said or felt. Just for today, I’ll spend a quiet half hour trying to gain a more positive perspective on my life.

Do I have the courage to change the things I can?

Today I Pray
Through quietness and a reassessment of myself, may I develop a more positive attitude. If I am a child of God, created in His image, there must be goodness in me. I will think about that goodness and the ways it manifests itself. I will stop putting myself down, even in my secret thoughts. I will respect what is God’s. I will respect myself.

Today I Will Remember
Self-respect is respect for God.
