For today - I am the best I can be...

One of the important lessons I am learning from attending my ED meetings are that we have to live each day, one day at a time. Life gets so tied up with planning and trying to be someone or something different in the future that we can get lost along the way.

Over the last few days I have really felt that I am doing just that, living for the day. When I make a mistake I am able to say 'oh well, that was then, right now is different and I will not make that mistake again but I will stay positive and get on with the day, rather than allowing it to bug me'. I remember a friend used to have the moto 'seize the day' and I never really got it - but now I do!

So really what I have grasped is that all God asks of me is to be the best person I can be on that day. It is what we say to children all the time 'as long as you tried your hardest that is great'. How liberating to know that same rule applies to me too, as I am also someone's child.
