One Day At A Time
“ONE DAY AT A TIME” it is the battle cry. “ONE DAY AT A TIME”…anyone who has fought any type of vice has uttered those words. Three words of encouragement. Three words of self hypnosis!
I watch my diet – food intake – I love to eat – reduce the intake – one day at a time
I recover from a serious illness – I watch my symptoms – I adhere to the prescribed medicine – one day at a time
I quit using my drug of choice – I watch the shaking of my hands – I keep myself overly busy – one day at a time
I strive for political correctness – I watch my words – I don’t allow words to hurt my feelings – one day at a time
One day at a time infers that the abstinence of whatever your strife is only short term. This small phrase allows our ego to think whatever it is we are striving for is a short term goal and that whatever we have given up to attain our goal can come back into our lives….soon. And, hopefully, soon never comes. But when stopping a vice….”soon” is an important factor. Forever is a very long time….
I strive to be a better person, writer, mother, wife, grandmother, friend, sibling, daughter, human being….One Day At A Time.
