Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

GUILT


“It is all one to me if a man comes from Sing Sing or Harvard. We hire a man not his history.
— Henry Ford

So often we can get so locked into our history — what we did, what we said, the events of which we were ashamed — that we miss the gift of the new day.

Those of us who suffer from the disease of addiction need to deal with past problems but not live in them. Our attitude towards today need not be based on what happened yesterday. Today is the beginning of the rest of our lives. Today I know that I create most of the pain and tragedy in my life, but I also know that I create the joys and successes. I am confident that my sobriety makes me a winner.

Lord, I forgive myself for yesterday and look forward to the healing that comes with today.
