The Eye Opener
Saturday, July, 16, 2016
We in AA are taught to live for today and to shut out all regrettable yesterdays. This philosophy is good, but it does not mean that we can cut off yesterdays as though they never existed.

If we had not been alcoholics in the yesterdays, we would not be in AA today. If our lives had not been wrecked, we would not now be rebuilding upon a better and surer foundation.

We do not need to lament over misspent yesterdays, but we should salvage what was good in them to help construct our new way of life.
