It is a dark morning, with a house without a view.  But, it is good.  It is wonderful, in fact.  I'm drinking hot water with lemon and writing on one passage instead of all three.

Here we go....

I am writing my life story with every single today. Am I moving in a positive direction? If not, perhaps I need to make some changes. I can do nothing to change the past except stop repeating it in the present. Going to AI-Anon meetings and practicing the principles of the program are some of the ways in which I am already breaking out of unhealthy and unsatisfying patterns of the past.
I believe that my life is built upon layers of little everyday accomplishments. When I think this way, setting goals and taking small risks becomes nothing more than a daily striving to make my life better. Taking some tiny action each day can be much more effective than weeks and months of inactivity followed by a frenzied attempt to make radical changes overnight. It certainly leaves me more serene. When I face a new challenge, I try to  take my beginning wherever it may be and start from there.
Today's Reminder
No one can make me change. No one can stop me from changing. No one really knows how I must change, not even I. Not until I start. I will remember that it only takes a slight shift in direction to begin to change my life.
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

What an appropriate passage for today!!  Great for the New Year when my mind is swarming with positive change.  This is such a great truth.  Big change is made by tiny little steps every day.  We don't have to do it ALL just a step.
And also the truth that, "No one really knows how I must change, not even I"  Sooooo true and powerful.  But, these discoveries will arise). 


  1. Great passage! I like "no one can stop me from changing."
