Courage to Change - June 17

Courage to Change – June 17

Al-Anon helps many of us cope with crises that we simply could not have managed on our own. We learn to lean on a Power greater than ourselves, and through the faith and support that surrounds us, we discover that we can live and even grow through terribly difficult times. For most of us, the situation eventually alters, or we learn to find peace with it.

But some of us continue to worry. What if crises return? Al-Anon has helped before, but will it work for me if I need it again? What if some other misfortune comes to pass?

I cannot know what the future will bring. My best hope is every bit as likely to occur as my worst fear, so I have no reason to give more weight to my negative assumptions. All I can do is make the most of this day. Today I can choose to trust my recovery, the tools of the program, and my Higher Power, and to recognize how very far I have come.

TODAY’S REMINDER
Today I will take a few minutes to acknowledge my growth. I am not perfect, but I certainly have made progress.

“. . . we may not recognize our progress right away, but the effects of working the Al-Anon program are profound and lasting.” . . . In All Our Affairs

These are words I needed to read this morning. Staying in `the day` can sometimes be hard for me, but past experience and lessons of my recovery have taught me that `today` is the only reality, yesterday is only a memory and tomorrow a vision that will unfold how it may.

Today I will live well, take good care of me, and let the rest of eternity just take care of itself.

Hugs
