Today’s thought from Hazelden is:
The way to love anything is to realize it might be lost.
–G. K. Chesterton
Every day we take so much for granted. But we can count certain blessings: a roof over our head, food, clothing, family and friend, freedom, a Higher Power we trust. These things are special. Thinking about them wakes up our happiness. Our recovery program shows us how to be happy. We just have to remember to do what it tells us!
Step Ten helps us wake up our happiness. Each evening, as we think about our day, we can give thanks for the things we love; our recovery, our health, and the special people in our lives. If we spend part of our day thinking about these important areas, we won’t lose them.
Prayer for the Day
Higher Power, help me make the most of my blessings today.
Action for the Day
Today, I’ll tell five people I love that I’m glad to have them in my life. And I’ll tell each of them one reason why.
