Fr. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


“The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.”

~ Mignon McLaughlin 

I do not need courage for a lifetime—just for the moment. I am helped by the philosophy that teaches me to live one day at a time, one hour at a time, or one moment at a time. It is too daunting to try to live tomorrow. Life is a process to be lived, not a future to be anticipated.

For years, I tried to anticipate what life would throw at me, and I always came away confused and exhausted. I missed the joy of the moment. I had a thousand questions I could not answer; nobody can answer for the future today.

I can only take responsibility for my life a day at a time. As I develop the courage to face the moment, I become a winner.

May I avoid the fantasy of tomorrow and enjoy the reality of today.
