Each day a new Beginning

No person is your enemy, no person is your friend, and every person is
your teacher.  —Florence Scovel Shinn—
We can open ourselves to opportunities today. They abound in our lives. No circumstance we find ourselves

in is detrimental to our progress. No relationship with someone at work or at home is superfluous to our

development. Teachers are everywhere. And as we become ready for a new lesson, one will appear.
We can marvel at the wonder of our lives today. We can reflect on our yesterdays and be grateful for the lessons

they taught. We can look with hopeful anticipation
at the days ahead–gifts, all of them. We are on a special journey, serving a special
purpose, uniquely our own. No barrier, no difficult person, no tumultuous time is
designed to interrupt our progress. All experiences are simply to teach us
what we have yet to learn.
Trusting in the goodness of all people, all situations, all paths to progress will
release whatever our fears, freeing us to go forth with a quicker step and an
assurance that eases all moments.
The Twelve Steps help us to recognize the teachers in our lives. They help us
clear away the baggage of the past and free us to accept and trust the will of God,
made known to us by the teachers as they appear.
I am a student of life. I can learn only if I open my mind to my teachers.
