June 29, 2017 - Readings in Recovery: Today's Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Thursday, June 29, 2017
Today's thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Making prompt amends is the fresh air of each new day.
 -- Sandra Little


Today brings us a new hill to climb and a new view from the top. Taking time to reflect about our daily journeys is a challenging adventure in self-discovery. Looking down, we see our past trials and difficulties as lessons to learn from. Letting go of old baggage as we end our day will give us a bright window to open onto tomorrow.

Completing a daily inventory creates a good foundation for living peacefully. Honestly acknowledging the things we have done or said to hurt ourselves or others enables us to say, "I'm sorry" and to begin each day with a clean slate and a peaceful heart. As we empty ourselves of regret by making amends to ourselves and others, we make room for the love and comfort of our Higher Power.

Today help me take inventory and make amends where I need to.
