Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

FEAR


“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

– Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Fear is a killer. It is a killer because it drains us of life, energy and creativity. Fear petrifies the human spirit.

I spent a lot of yesterdays afraid. Afraid of people finding out. Afraid of the telephone. Afraid of where it would all end. Afraid of me! I did not realize that I was feeding the fear with my behavior. I drank myself into fear. The day I stopped drinking alcohol was the day I stopped giving energy to my fear.

Today I live my life without abnormal or unrealistic fears. Today I enjoy my life. I work through my problems. I am not afraid of my shadow. Today I love me.

Lord may I always connect my unrealistic fears with my behavior — and begin the change.
