Presence, Purpose, & Peace

Peace BBI
Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
— Desmond Tutu

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Many of my colleagues and friends have offered creative and helpful suggestions and steps to success in the New Year.  Others have provided tools and systems to assist us in finding happiness in 2016. I can find something of value in each one of them. 

When I contemplated what value I could bring to 2016, I was reminded of a life changing concept I learned back in 1988 during my first year of sobriety: 

Live one day at a time! And in this day give our best in presence, purpose, and peace.

Presence means showing up in the now. Giving focused attention to whatever is here for us in this moment. 

Purpose is demonstrated in the direction and the dedication of how we make our contribution.

Peace can be shared in the harmonious energy we reveal. Patience, compassion, Love.

Together, let’s “Celebrate” this first day of 2016!

Ponder This:

How can you Celebrate the peace of the present moment with each interaction in your current situation today?
