one day at a time – a meditation


“Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.”

Victor Hugo

This quote reminds me to focus on doing the next right thing. I often worry about what is going on – my feelings, the future, others' behavior. When I do this, I start becoming controlling and rationalize my behaving in ways that is contrary to my conscience. When I focus on this quote, I realize that all I need to do is focus on one thing at a time – the next right thing. And I only need to take it one day at a time. When I do that, I am able to do the best that I can. Beyond that, I let it go to my Higher Power. So every night when I sleep, I rest easy because I know that I have done all I can and I trust that my Higher Power will take care of the rest.
