A Day at a Time
Wednesday, March 1, 2017
 
Reflection for the Day
Now that we’re free and no longer chemically-dependent, we have so much more control over our thinking. More than anything, we’re able to alter our attitudes. Some members of Alcoholics Anonymous, in fact, choose to think of the letters AA as an abbreviation for “Altered Attitudes.” In the bad old days, I almost always responded to any optimistic or positive statement with, “Yes, but …”  Today, in contrast, I’m learning to eliminate that negative phrase from my vocabulary.

Am I working to change my attitude? Am I determined to “accentuate the positive …?”

Today I Pray
May I find that healing and strength which God provides to those who stay near Him. May I keep to the spiritual guidelines of The Program, considering the Steps, taking the steps – one by one – then practicing them again and again. In this is my salvation.

Today I Will Remember
To practice at least one Step.
