ODAT - One day at atime
Worrying is a usual condition with those of us who are new in Al-Anon. Worry has become such a habit that we can't shake it off, even when our minds are convinced that it serves no purpose. We think about what happened yesterday and we're sure it's a clue to the awful things that are sure to happen tomorrow. The members of AA have set us a good example in living one day at a time. We in Al-Anon can, if we work at it, free ourselves from yesterday and tomorrow. Today is only one little set of 24 hours, a reasonably manageable bit of time that we can concentrate on using well.
Today's Reminder
I will not allow myself to be swamped by thoughts of things that are past. I will not concern myself about tomorrow until it becomes my today. The better I use today, the more likely it is that tomorrow will be bright.
"Let not my thought fantasies lead me into anticipating trouble, since I cannot know what the future may bring."

I will say, that part of my today, needs to be preparing for tomorrow.  But, I have found that I can do that will little worry involved.  Me focusing on this checklist I made, has been a gift as it keeps me focused on what I need to do, TODAY.

  1. Something I need to be constantly reminded. Btw, I like the posts for each passage. Makes it easier to read when I can and reply to specific posts.
