The Meaning of One Day At A Time

The time to be healed is now. There is no need to
postpone the peace, prosperity and abundant life
in addiction recovery that we all deserve.
Enlightened people throughout the ages have
understood this principle. The Lords Prayer
says, Give us this day our daily bread. Not
yesterdays and tomorrows breadbut
todays. Today is the day of Salvation. Bill W.
suggested that we live one day at a time, and
that day is today!  All life takes place in the
present, this very moment. This moment is a gift,
thats why it is called the present.

But how can we understand this spiritual
principle and put it into action? Action that
creates real change requires devotion, attention,
and focusin the right direction.  Here, well
review some common mistakes people make in early
recovery. Then, well talk about how you can
apply a few simple suggestions into your One Day
At A Time routine in order to change your life!
Questions are welcomed at the end. Understanding
The Present Moment When I was getting sober, I
struggled with the one-day-at-a-time logic. It
didnt strike me as very profound, because, after
all, I had been literally existing one day at a
time in active addiction. My life revolved around
getting high, right now, today.

In early recovery I spent a lot of my day living
in the past, worrying about past misdeeds and
mentally revisiting the poor choices that I had
made. What a waste of time. I realize now that I
had developed and nurtured this fear based habit
as a distraction. Even though the past was
unpleasant and filled with error, at least I knew
what happened. This was less stressful than
living in the present or with the uncertainty of
the future. I also spent countless hours
daydreaming about what I wanted to do, own, or
accomplish someday rather than taking daily
action to turn my dreams into reality. Granted
,this was more productive than rehearsing the
doubt and defeat of my past but it also was a
waste of time. I did not yet understand the line
in the serenity prayer, the courage to change
the things I can. It meant the courage to take
action right now. If I want a better future, I
need to start building it today.
