Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


POTENTIAL

“There is no meaning to life except the meaning man gives his life by the unfolding of his powers.”

–Eric Fromm

My life was powerless when I was drinking. The drug alcohol stopped me from reaching my full potential – I was depressed, tired, angry, lonely and confused. Incredible as it may sound, I was the enemy to my life. By drinking alcohol, I fed the disease and made my life unmanageable.

Then I had a “moment” when I saw what I was doing to my life. The pain caused by drinking outweighed any advantages. I had hit my bottom. I began to change my life by refusing the first drink, and I began to experience a new vitality and potential. A new and creative life dawned. Friendships and relationships were possible again. God became understandable in His world. My power as a human being was unleashed in my sobriety.

Master, may I discover my potential in the loving decisions I undertake.
