“KEEPING MY FEET IN TODAY”
I asked a young man, who has been sober for almost three years, what he’s learned from recovery. He wrote:
Change is constant.
What’s that about?
Life is in motion. And
It’s happening now.
Life in Recovery? (life as a healthy human)
Draw on the past
Hope for the future
With my feet in today
My reflection: When Jeff became sober, he faced a myriad of problems caused by his years of using: financial, health, legal and personal. He had to take one day at a time, live in the present and trust that with persistence, sobriety and faith, he would piece his life back together.
Today’s Promise to consider: Keeping both feet in today is a challenge. Our busy minds swing between replaying the past and fast forwarding into the future and, in doing so, we find ourselves living in a world of regrets and projections. Today, I’ll do my best to be present and to appreciate the magic in everyday moments.2408
