Quote is from “Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:”

Time is a circle. The end is the beginning.
Day by day, a year comes and goes. Today’s end is the beginning of the rest of our lives. We take with us what we have learned today. We are the same and not the same. As long as we are alive, we will continue to wrestle with questions, seek answers, and solve problems. Let’s be gentle with ourselves and others, choosing to respond with non-judging love and acceptance instead of unrealistic demands of perfection.

We have found a blueprint for recovery. Our preoccupation with not enough and too much has led us to a spiritual solution. Each day brings us new opportunities to express our development – a more patient response to a traffic jam, the ability to empathize with a child’s embarrassment, the acceptance of a disappointment. Today is another day to learn how to be serene, to nurture body and spirit so that we may function as an integrated totality. We will continue to learn and grow toward recovery. I will begin and end today by listening to my inner voice.

End of quote.
