Feb. 15, 2024 - Readings in Recovery: Today's Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation


Thursday, Feb. 15, 2024

Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

I’m more like I am now than I ever was before.

— Anonymous

We are becoming more ourselves. That is our true calling. If we grow wiser and stronger with life experience, we learn to know ourselves, and we find the confidence and courage to fulfill our best self. We walk a path that is sometimes very difficult and complicated. Weighing the choices before us, we seldom have a clear, unequivocal answer. But as we know ourselves better and as we gain confidence, we gradually fulfill our true nature.

A story in the Talmud describes a man at the end of his life who fears that he will be judged by God for not living a life like Moses. The rabbi replies that God will not judge him for not being Moses, but for not being himself.

Today, I will allow myself to be more like I am than I ever did before.
