August 15 • One Day More

Day 402

"One day at a time"

has multiple meanings for me. Of course, there is the traditional and critical piece of being sober one day at a time, because trying to think of being sober for many years at a time is exhausting and useless.

But for me, this phrase is at least as important when talking about working the program and continuing to grow as a recovering sex addict. If I go a day — a single day — without working some aspect of my plan, then it is exponentially easier to miss another day and then another day, or so my life patterns would strongly indicate. I think the longest I've gone missing in nine months or so is two days, but those two days also were filled with a rush of old thoughts and desires. And I still feel chased by old thinking; more on days when I'm not working the plan than days when I am.

I intend to 'OneDay' this to death with the passion and patience of characters in a French revolution!



Tomorrow we'll discover

What our God in Heaven has in store

One more dawn

One more day

One day more

–Jean Valjean, Marius, Cosette, Éponine, Enjolras, Javert, and the Thénardiers (cast of Les Misérables), ”One Day More"
