Today is a good day. I'm alive, I am healthy, my family is great and I am sober.
It is important for me to remind myself of these things early and often. With all the negative stuff going on these days that's well beyond my control, I simply must focus on what's most important and what's right in front of me. Otherwise, I will get sucked into all the gloom and doom around me and go off the deep end. I cannot afford to be that way.
A friend called me yesterday with an urgent message to fill my gas tank because gasoline would be $5 per gallon in Ohio by Friday. He was dead serious. I just don't have it in me to live like that anymore. My peace of mind and serenity are too too important to me today, right now.
I pray for peace, for God's grace for all of us. I pray that those I know who a struggling with whatever is going on in their lives find peace, resolution and God's will. I thank God for all the many beautiful blessings and miracles in my life and I pray that I am willing to share them with others, that they might spread.
Today is a good day.
