Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
We merely need to follow our conscience
Where are we going? What’s the plan for our life? Most of us didn’t intend to end up as we have, but here we are! And a significant number of us might not be alive if it weren’t for this program. We may have thought we knew where we were headed in our youth, but few of us got there. What we are learning now is that we have an assigned journey and that a Higher Power is in charge. This means we can relax. We don’t have to figure anything out. We need only follow our conscience.
Following our conscience means never intentionally hurting another person. It means following through on the responsibilities that are clearly ours. It means honoring God by being grateful for our many blessings. It means feeling joy for the gift of life we’ve been given. It means trusting that our journey is special and necessary to the other travelers on our path.
I will remember to appreciate the nudging from my conscience today.
