KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

The strongest of all warriors are these two—Time and Patience.

~ Leo Tolstay 


One of the first things we learn about in recovery is time. Before, we may have tried to control time by Pushing it along. We tried to hurry everything and everybody. We wanted our “quick fix.” But the program tells us to slow down. Easy Does It.

We probably couldn’t picture ourselves staying sober for the rest of our life. So we were told to just work at staying sober today. We learned to work our program One Day at a Time. We were thought that time can be our friend. Times is our Higher Power’s way of not having everything happen at once.

Prayer for the Day:


Higher Power, you are my teacher. You are in charge of the lesson. Help me accept this. Teach me how to use my time wisely.

Action for the Day:


Today, I’ll list five ways I use my time in ways that aren’t helpful to me. I’ll work at making time my friend.
