Today’s thought from Hazelden is:
The years teach us much, which the days never knew.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
We don’t need to know everything today, and so we don’t. We don’t know why some people act the way they do, or why we are addicts when others aren’t. All we need to know today is what to do to preserve sobriety for this day. This means doing the small things we need to do right now.
We live life from moment to moment, and we can be grateful for that. There is nothing too hard to do for this moment only. We are clean and sober this moment, and so we are growing. As we live our day fully today, we will find no part of it bigger than the moment it occupies.
Today let me live life the best I can by staying in the present.
