Tomorrow doesn’t matter, for I have lived today.
Life is found in the present. One of the first things we hear when we enter the Program is, One Day at a Time. We break life into short time periods. This gives us the power to change. We’re not sure we can Stay Sober for a lifetime. But we know that with God, and our program, we can stay sober for today.
This holds true for many other things in our lives. We’re not sure we can go a lifetime without feeling self-pity, but we can give it up for the day. By living One Day at a Time, we become more sure of our strength. We have the power to change things only in the present. The present holds much for us, if we get a Hold on it.
Prayer for the Day
Higher Power, You are found in the moment. You are here. I will stay with You minute by minute.
Action for the Day
I will ground myself in the present. Today, I’ll not worry about the past or the future.
