One Today At A Time
At an AA meeting the other day, one of the speakers pointed out that ‘one day at a time’ includes the past as well. This concept brought on a whole shift in perspective for me, as i’d always thought of the expression in terms of “i only have to worry about not taking a drink today. Tomorrow is another problem.”
“One day at a time” includes my past as well. i don’t worry about tomorrow, but neither do i worry about yesterday.
Let yesterday heal the past and tomorrow worry about the future. Today is all i can manage.
