|....on the Road to Recovery|
Restart your day-anytime!
For many years of my life when I started the day off in a bad mood, you could be assured the rest of the day would be miserable for me and those around me. I didn't know there was an alternative.
As years passed in my recovery journey, as promised, more was revealed. One day at a meeting someone talked about the bad day they were having. Another member at the table offered this simple thought: "You know, you can start your day over anytime you want - like right now!"
I immediately remembered being in a bowling league and the age old idea of: if your first 5 frames are bad - just draw a line on the score sheet and start the next 5 frames like a new game. Funny the ways in which God continues to guide and teach me.
Here's my suggestion: The next time your day sets you in a bad mood- take a short pause, ask your Higher Power to help- then start the rest of the day with a new beginning. At the end of the day reflect on how that worked.
