- Am I willing to be in recovery today?
- Am I willing to do what is necessary for recovery today?
- What is the plan for today?
Today is, just for today, it takes away future and past. It is the only part that I can work with.
Question 1 is just about willingness, for without willingness to recover, not much happens. Willingness without action is like faith without works, dead. I need to be willing to do what needs to be done for recovery first, and then a bit of work, and other things but that is just for today. Recover becomes the first priority, for without, nothing else will go on for long.
The plan for today, is something I need to have in my mind, No SGO6EE, 311, plus a few reviews during the day, and what ever else needs to be done that day.
For years I showed up to work knowing only what was the first thing that I was doing, but often solid clue where I would sleep tonight. I learned to live like that for most of twenty years. Planning ahead was always short term, with some distance items. This is the same thing, just for today.
Review is essential to keep one's self in line. But that to, is just for today. Living in day tight compartments, unit of time, helps.
