June 27 Reflection for the Day
Little by little, I’m getting over my tendency to procrastinate. I always used to put things off till tomorrow, and, of course, they never got done. Instead of “Do it now,” my motto was “Tomorrow’s another day.” When I was in action, I had grandiose plans; when I came down from my high, I was too busy getting over my depression to start anything. I’ve learned in the Gamblers Anonymous Program that it’s far better to make a mistake once in a while than to never do anything at all.
Am I learning to “do it now”?
Today I Pray
May God help me cure my habitual tardiness and “get me to the church on time.” May I free myself of the self-imposed chaos of lifelong procrastination: library books overdue, appointments half-missed, assignments turned in late, schedules unmet, meals half-cooked. May I be sure if I, as a compulsive gambler, led a disordered life, I, as a recovering compulsive gambler, need order. May God give me the serenity I need to restore order and organization to my daily living.
Today I Will Remember
I will not be put off by my tendency to put off.
