Throughout the years that I've known people in 12-step programs, one of the common phrases is "one day at a time." In other words, to borrow Jesus' words, tomorrow has enough to keep us busy, so why worry about tomorrow and missing living today to its fullest?
In lunch with my friend Paul Fukui--a pilgrim--in Portland, OR, he simply said, "well, why not live one step at a time?" Living the pilgrim life where we are means living one step at a time, rather than running the full gamut, or going the full distance in one day.
Here's to trying to live one step at a time.
