“Past performance is no guarantee of future results.” Anytime we read an investment-related disclosure, we are going to come across a phrase like that. The same principle applies to our recovery. We don’t stay sober today from yesterday’s actions.
“Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God’s will into all our activities.” Starting and ending each day with Step Eleven’s disciplines, being awake practicing Step Ten, and helping others are how we can guarantee another day of sobriety.
Today is a new day. What I did for my sobriety yesterday was for yesterday. I’m living one day at a time, remembering, “What we really have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition.” Every day is a day when I must carry the vision of God’s will into all my activities.
