Our lives are built of days. Each day, well-lived, builds upon the next. Starting with the daily routine of Morning Pages, we begin to view life in daily increments. ‘What can I do today, just today?’ we ask ourselves.
Just for today we can manage to eat well. Just for today we can manage some exercise. Just for today we can sandwich in a little spiritual reading…At day’s end, instead of a to do list, we have what might be called a “ta-dah” list--a sizeable handful of things well done. We couldn’t face the prospect of being so virtuous for the rest of our lives, but a day at a time, it’s quite possible—and even enjoyable.
Just for today, live one day at a time.
