MARCH 24 Reflection for the Day
All of us are faced with the troubles and problems of daily living, whether we’ve been in Gamblers Anonymous two days or twenty years. We’d sometimes like to believe we could take care of all our problems right now, but it rarely works that way. If we remember the slogan “A Day at a Time” when we are ready to panic, we may come to know that the very best way to handle anything is to “turn it over.” We put one foot in front of the other, doing the best we are capable of doing. We say “A Day at a Time.” And we do it – a day at a time.
Are the Program’s slogans growing with me as I grow with the Program?
Today I Pray
May even the words “A Day at a Time” serve to slow me down in my headlong rush to accomplish too much too fast. May just those words be enough to make me ease up on the accelerator that plunges me into new situations without enough forethought, ease off on the number of hours spent in material pursuits. May I hark to the adage that Rome wasn’t built in a single day. Neither can I build solutions to my problems all at once.
Today I Will Remember
A Day at a Time.
