There are a few in my life who do not grasp each morning with a positive attitude. Haunted by the past and fearful of the future, they fail to focus on TODAY and it’s positive potential.Wise words from Einstein!!

I never think of the future; it comes soon enough.

~Albert Einstein

In our spiritual development, we learn to think about time in new ways. Many of us have come to our healing journey stuck in the past, imprisoned by fears or angers that arose years ago. We live in the past through regrets and griefs about things that can never change, and we translate them into the future with fears and foreboding. Yet we all know that life is only in the present. All we need to do is live today.

Our memories shaped us, but our development is not finished. Today, we don’t have to deal with all the problems we can foresee in the future. Today, we are given a hand to play, and we can play the cards we have as we choose. With the spiritual guidance of our recovery path, we can resolve the pain of the past and our fears of the future. Our Higher Power reassures us that we will never be alone.

Today, once again, I awake into the present, and I thank God for the chance to live this day. I will let my Higher Power care for my fears and regrets.
