It’s easy to get lost in the challenges of life. In fact, it’s all too easy to let the challenges consume us and keep us from living our lives to the fullest. That’s why it’s important to take some time each day for reflection.
Today, take a few minutes to reflect on your successes, big and small. Reflect on the things you’re grateful for, no matter how small they may seem. And finally, reflect on what you can do today to help make tomorrow a little bit better.
Take these moments for reflection seriously, and see if you can find ways to bring this mindfulness into your daily routine. It just might make all the difference.

I know the torment of drinking compulsively to quiet my nerves and my fears. I also know the pain of white-knuckled sobriety.
Today, I do not forget the unknown person who suffers quietly, withdrawn, and hiding in the desperate relief of drinking.
It’s time for me to live a life that is fulfilling without alcohol or drugs – no matter how long it takes or what trials are presented along this journey because by doing so, I will show someone else they too can find their way back home with courage, humility, and honesty.
