LIVING IN THE NOW

First, we try living in the now just in order to stay sober--and it works. Once the idea has become a part of our thinking, we find that living life in 24-hour segments is an effective and satisfying way to handle many other matters as well.

LIVING SOBER, p. 7

    "One Day At A Time." To a newcomer this and other one-liners of A.A. may seem ridiculous. The passwords of the A.A. Fellowship can become life-lines in moments of stress. Each day can be like a rose unfurling according to the plan of a Power greater than myself. My program should be planted in the right location, just as it will need to be groomed, nourished, and protected form disease. My planting will require patience, and my realizing that some flowers will be more perfect that others. Each stage of the petals' unfolding can bring wonder and delight if I do not interfere or let my expectations over ride my acceptance--and this brings serenity.
