Just For Today

‘Just for today I will look for ways to enjoy life – stop by a garden, try a new hobby, or call a good friend. I can look for humor. I can savor love. I can explore something new. Maybe just for today, I’ll try standing on my head to see if I like the view.” Courage to Change (8-16), p. 274

“Just for today I will find a little time to relax and to realize what life is and can be; time to think about God and get a better perspective on myself.” Alcoholism, the Family Disease (P-4), p. 17

Easy Does It
