Oct. 6, 2018 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018

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

Enjoying reality

Cloud Nine does not compare to the joys and beauty of a clean life. In fact, Cloud Nine is opposed to our new way of life. It’s a fantasy, a trip, a high – like that first drink, fix, or pill.

Now we are dealing with reality – a real and beautiful place instead of a fanciful dream. Each day can be a journey with our Higher Power, beyond pain and suffering, beyond Cloud Nine, in the wonderful here and now.

Am I learning to enjoy today?

I pray for guidance through all aspects of growing, so I don’t get stuck in any one place.
