Life is something that we all have to deal with, live in and survive through. It’s amazing how quickly days can add up when one isn’t paying attention. I would have thought I would have written a post to celebrate my 2 year sober anniversary, but the day came and went. Wow, 2 whole years this past January 17, 2011. What an amazing journey of recovery.
When days come and go with a quickness it is crucial to not let your recovery work fall to the wayside. It is very easy to start missing meetings, stop writing in your journal and neglect giving attention to the people and events in life that you are grateful for. Life sometimes moves so quickly that we forget to be thankful for each day that we have. We all have this moment, there is no guarantee that we will have tomorrow.
It is the first day of Spring, a time of awakening. What are your plans for this new season? When will you give yourself the time you deserve to appreciate all that you have? The key message for the moment is quite simply, to not let all of your days pass by too quickly. Every human being is given 24 hours in a single day, within each and every day there is always time to take a few minutes to be still. Enjoy a Zen moment.
