Chapter three.” COURAGE TO CHANGE” One day at a time.

“Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax”. How simple that sounded until I tried to do it. I found it difficult to spend even a little time alone—-thirty quiet minutes out of my busy schedules were far too many! So I started with five minutes. In time I was able to find ten, and then twenty, and then thirty minutes for myself.
Amazingly, these quiet half hours are restoring me to sanity. It is through these times with myself, much of which is spent in prayer and meditation, that I find the peace and power of my God.
As a result, I have learned to tolerate and even enjoy my own company. Now, no matter what is going on, I need this half hour every day to get a perspective on my life. By sitting quietly in the midst of turmoil, I find that I am not alone.If I take the time, my high power sends the message.

You care enough about yourself to take a quiet half hour to relax. But if a half hour is more than you can manage, you can let that be all right. Whatever time you give to yourself will be a step forward. If you can stop the wheels from turning for even a few moments, your high power can take charge and steer you in the right direction.


Thank you once again 🙂
