Fr. LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

GUILT

It is all the same to me whether one comes from Sing Sing or Harvard. We hire a person, not their history.

~ Henry Ford ~

Too often I get so locked into my history ─ what I did, what I said, and the events of which I was ashamed—that I miss the gift of the new day. Those who suffer from the disease of addiction need to deal with past problems but not live in them.

My attitude toward today need not be based on what happened yesterday. Today is the beginning of the rest of my life.

I know I create most of the pain and tragedy in my life, but I also know I create the joys and successes. I am confident my sobriety makes me a winner.

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