Change

I heard someone say once in a meeting that all change in our lives, even change that we desperately longChange for, comes with some bit of sadness.  A sadness that is most often borne in the realization, that what we must leave behind is a part of ourselves.  And yet there is also the truism that for everything we lose or miss in our lives, we gain something new and of unquestioned value.

Some times it may be a new level of peace and at other times a new understanding of ourselves or the world around us.  Because ultimately things really don’t change…we do.  The challenge though, for those of us in recovery from addiction, is to be ready at any moment to give up what we are or have been for what we may become.
