April 10, 2016 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Sunday, April 10, 2016

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

Daily, we determine our priorities

Priorities are not merely something we establish once a year, once a month, or even once a week. Our priorities are visible in the myriad decisions we make and actions we take each day.

Being closely in touch with our inner selves and our Higher Power helps assure that our priorities reflect our genuine needs and desires. When we are securely centered, we will not be unduly influenced by other people but will know what is truly important to us and necessary for our health and well being.

We set our priorities when we do our grocery shopping and plan our meals. We set them when we choose between playing tennis or reading a book or going to see a friend. We set them when we decide how to respond to a negative comment from a co-worker. Our daily priorities reflect who we are and determine what we are becoming. Let’s set them with care.

Today, may I put first things first.
