Today’s daily reflection is all about hoping, dreaming, and believing. As alcoholics, we often feel like hope is a distant memory or something that was taken from us long ago—but that doesn’t have to be the case!
Despite how difficult our current circumstances may seem now, it’s important to remember that there is always hope for healing if we choose to take action towards recovery.
Today’s reflection offers us the chance to think about where we want our lives to go and helps equip us with the mental tools necessary for finding a healthier way of life. We don’t have to be stuck in this never-ending cycle of darkness; instead, light can find its way back into our hearts if only we work hard on ourselves each day.
Let today’s meditation serve as an invitation: you are loved and cared for by those around you who support your journey toward sobriety. Don’t forget– no matter what lies ahead in your life –you are strong enough to make it through!
Daily Reflections February 26
A.A. is no success story in the ordinary sense of the word. It is a story of suffering transmuted, under grace, into spiritual progress.
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 35
When I first joined Alcoholics Anonymous, my ears were filled with stories of sorrow and regret brought on by addiction. But as time went on, I started to experience a new reality – freedom from the shackles of alcoholism and an immense feeling of joy that comes with sobriety.
Through attending meetings surrounded by others in recovery, sharing experiences through programs like A.A., this newfound sense of serenity has become more accessible than ever before – giving me purpose both internally and externally–and for that I am truly grateful!
Life can be a rollercoaster of emotions and experiences. We often forget the truth amidst all the chaos, but by regularly taking time to reflect, we can better appreciate the beauty of where we have come from and remain grateful for our sober journey.
In A.A., I find my anchor in this beautiful reality; it’s a chance to remind myself that life is more than just darkness—it holds freedom, happiness, purpose and direction. By surrounding myself with other recovering alcoholics, working the program and dedicating some time for self-reflection every day, I stay grounded in the belief that I am worthy of discovering all the joys sobriety can bring me.
It truly should be reveled in fully so that we may experience true contentment with God, ourselves and others.
