Progress Takes Time

1 Corinthians 3:3 You are still following the ways of the world. Some of you are jealous. Some of you argue. So aren’t you following the ways of the world? Aren’t you acting like ordinary human beings?

Human nature is to compare. What your life was like before and what it is like now. Sometimes when we compare we can convince ourselves we were better off where we were.

Change is not always a quick process. Over the life of my recovery, I have had some exception mentors. I remember asking one of them a number of years ago “How do I get to be as wise as you?” To which he answered, “Keep doing what you are doing and live till you are 74”

It can seem easy sometimes to give up hope and just go back. Progress takes time. Don’t forget to check yours regularly.


Apologies for not posting 4o Days of Recovery today and tomorrow. Due to work commitments, it is not possible but posts will resume on Thursday 12th April 2018.
