    I was relatively new to recovery and stressing something I had to do next week when an old timer told me, “move your left foot 6 inches to the left which is yesterday and your right foot 6 inches to the right which is tomorrow. Now put the third foot in the middle for today.” I promptly looked at him as if he had lost his mind. He then said, “That’s right you don’t have one…get your damn feet back where they belong, IN TODAY!”

    You’re right. He may have lost his mind.

    My Pop’s would always say, “If you have one foot in Yesterday and the other in Tomorrow, your pissing on Today.”
