Just For Today

I am fortunate in that I get to attend a lot of AA (Alcoholic's Anonymous) and NA (Narcotic's Anonymous) meetings for my job.  I love it!  How awesome is it to get paid to go to meetings?

I'm one lucky girl!

I have been paying special attention in these meetings lately; listening and learning.

In each meeting, we are taught that practice makes progress; that we are never to aim for perfection, but rather, to aim for being better than we were yesterday.  We are simply to strive for greater knowledge each day.

Specific to NA, there is a tradition called 'Just For Today - Daily Meditation;' something they read out loud at each meeting to help ground their conviction and knowledge in recovery.

I want to write my own Daily Meditation to help ground and solidify my own recovery:

Just For Today

Just for today
my thoughts will be on my recovery, loving and enjoying life, and on being happy.

Just for today
I will have faith in someone else who believes in me and wants to help me in my recovery.

Just for today
I will have a program and I will strive and follow it to the best of my ability.

Just for today
my thoughts will be on my new way of life.

Just for today
I will be unafraid.

I encourage you to write your own!  It is rather liberating!

  2. I have a Just for Today in my wallet. I need to pull it out and read it. I love the comfort of just doing one day at a time.

Thank you for sharing a moment with me:-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
