Daily choices reflect my recovery

By small and simple things are great things brought to pass. 

~ Alma 37:8 ~


I met a gentleman a few months ago. We both were taking public transportation and we engaged in an interesting conversation. The main take away of this conversation focused on his personal belief around choices. I recall him saying, “Decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions.” The context of this focused on how we make choices that bring us to certain situations in life. And, he is correct.

19f6f0c3336980f41988bf32b5d45c2dIf you attend any sober support meeting, you become familiar with the sayings: One Step at a Time, One Day at a Time, Easy Does it. These are a small sampling of what one may hear. Recovery is a course in one’s live that is seldom determined by any great, life-altering decisions. How we direct our life, as we are living in recovery, is often determined by the small, day-to-day decisions we make.  This is the very substance of living in recovery – our ability to make choices. 

Through our small and simple choices we make to engage in maintaining a program of recovery, maintaining abstinence, and engaging in a life where we begin to find meaning and purpose, greater things begin to happen whereby we achieve sobriety and a transformed life: A life of meaning, purpose, and overall health and wellness.


Today’s Thoughtful Meditation

I will be aware of how my daily choices align with what I believe and value as I continue my journey through recovery. Knowing that these small day-to-day decisions are charting my own track on which I run.
