Keep it Simple

When I look at the future, it’s so bright, it burns my eyes. —Oprah Winfrey—
During our illness, it was as if our spirit lived in a deep, dark cave. Our spirit became gloomy, cold, and lonely. Our spirit didn’t know how to get out of the cave. We were dying. Recovery brings us into the sunlight. At first, we can’t see a thing—it’s too bright! The world stretches around us—it’s so big! There are so many way to go! We don’t know what to do. But our eyes get used to the light, and we feel  the warm rays of the sun. We see we aren’t alone anymore. We relax. We know our spirit is in a better place—a place where we can live!

Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me feel at home in the sunlight of my new life.
Action for the Day:  Addiction made my world so small. It made my future so dark. Today, I’ll list three new choices I want to make to better my life.
