21-04: Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!

Carpe Diem (Seize the day)!  

Quote
Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.
~James Thurber~

Meditation
Life is a journey…Too often, we are so wrapped up in arriving at a destination, that we take no time to enjoy the journey.  An entire lifetime can be wasted in thinking, “I’ll be happy when I have this”, or “I’ll be happy when that occurs”.  Be happy now!  Take time to smell the roses, and be thankful for this moment and this day!

Thought for the day
You know how as newcomers many of us were already thinking about making amends so we could restore our relationships even before we had taken our first step. That is the type of “stinkin thinkin” that characterizes the many who can’t seem to make this program.  Let us help these unfortunate ones by constantly reminding them to “live in the moment and stay in the now”.  Then and only then do they really have a shot at liberty from self!

Scriptures
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. ~Jesus (Matthew 6:25,27,30-33)~

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
~Psalms 118:24~

About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
