At this moment, I am the right person, in the right place, at the right time.
Some days we wake up on the wrong side of the bed. For whatever reason, we just don’t want to face the day. The world seems too big and too difficult, and the solution feels like crawling back into bed or re-engaging with our addiction. At that point, we must ask ourselves what sort of day we would like to have. If we want to be miserable, we’re off to a good start. If we want to have a decent day, we need to make a break with what we’re feeling. And that break always requires some sort of action on our part. We need to take the proverbial next right step. This may mean getting out of bed and thanking our Higher Power for our sobriety. It may mean compiling a gratitude list. Or it may be as simple as dragging ourselves into the bathroom to brush our teeth, shower, and get dressed. As we continually do the next right thing over and over, we start to accomplish things and our day inevitably gets better.
Task for Today
When you feel stuck, ask yourself, “What is the next right step?” And then take that step.
