A Day At A Time #essentialsofrecovery

Reflection For The Day

I once heard it said that “the mind is the slayer of the real.”  Looking back at the insanity of those days when I was actively addicted, I know precisely what that phrase means.  One of The Program’s important fringe benefits for me today is an increasing awareness of the world around me, so I can see and enjoy reality.  This alone helps diminish the difficulties I so often magnify, creating my own misery in the process.  Am I acquiring the sense of reality which is absolutely essential to serenity?

Today I Pray

May I be revived by a sharpened sense of reality, excited to see — for the first time since the blur of my worst moments — the wonders and opportunities in my world.  Emerging from the don’t-care haze of addiction, I see objects and faces coming into focus again, colors brightening.  May I take delight in this new-found brightness.

Today I Will Remember

To focus on my realities.
