When we came into the room so A.A./N.A. there was a sort of willingness for us to even get there. Not realizing it at the time but that willingness is something that we must hold onto for the rest of our lives. We’ve got to stay willing to move forward and grow.
In the beginning some of us are willing to do some things but not others. We realize that doesn’t work. Even after years and years of recovery we must stay willing because if we lose that willingness it will be easy for our disease to take over. The more we stay willing and the more we continue and look to grow from the things in our lives, the better we will become.
So whether you’re just entering the program or have been in it for a long time, stay willing. Having willingness in your recovery is the ultimate growth to being better than we ever imagined.
