FR. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


I would if I could stand on a busy corner, hat in hand, and beg people throw me their wasted hours.

~ Bernard Berenson ~

I enjoy sobriety so much that I hate to waste my time. Part of my spiritual program involves a correct use of time. I do not spend time with negative or destructive people. I do not spend time doing things I do not enjoy just to please others. I enjoy life so much that I do not wish to waste any of it.

As an alcoholic, I wasted too much time. For most of my life, I was out to lunch! Today I spend time enjoying life, and I spend quality time alone with “self.” I like conversations with myself, the thoughts I need to ponder. I also need time to rest in the peace of my day. Time is a precious gift from God that should not be wasted.

God, let me live each day as if it were my last.
