Sometimes when I think about the anguish that I've caused others in the past, I want to hide. And when I think about the unpredictability of the future, I want to stand in place and pray for nothing bad to happen. When I live my life like this, I am being run by my emotions. Instead, I try to create the habit of waking up with hope for each day, not worrying about the day before or after. Of course, these thoughts will enter my mind whether I want them to or not, but by utilizing the tools of the program, I can live through these thoughts instead of living in them.
