Life and Difficulty

I often marvel at the many new truths my recovery from addiction has revealed and continues to revealDifficulty to me on a daily basis.  Early on in the rooms I heard that part of the good news of not using drugs and alcohol was that we “get to experience life the way it is supposed to be experienced.”  However, the admonition goes…”that is also the bad news!!!!”  

 What I understand today is that life indeed can be challenging and extremely difficult at times.  That is a truth, perhaps one of life’s greatest truths. But it is also a great truth that once we understand that life is difficult this knowledge empowers us to transcend it.  And once we accept and transcend it then life is no longer difficult. 

 Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult simply no longer really matters.
