Being Attentive

Being attentive to God's guidance requires our being conscious of the unexpected gifts that come to us each day. Giving thanks for all our opportunities to serve Him heightens our sensitivity to the infinite way in which our Lord is leading us.
(The Twelve Steps For Christians, p. 191)

I am free to choose. I can leave my mistakes, my disappointments, my bad attitudes to yesterday. I can rewrite myself as a person of hope. I can get up each morning with an attitude of appreciation and turn every event into an occasion of thankfulness. If my life is too complicated, I have the power to make simpler choices.
