…we do not always like what is good for us in this world.  —Eleanor Roosevelt—
Most of us can look back and recall how we fought a particular change. How certain we were that we wouldn’t

survive the upheaval! Perhaps we lost a love or were forced to leave a home or a job. Retrospect allows us to see

the good of the change, and we can see the necessary part each change has played in our development as recovering women. We’ve had to change to cover the distances we’ve traveled. And we’ll have to continue changing.
The program and its structure, and our faith in that structure, can ease the harsh consequences of change. Our higher power wants only the best for us, of that we can be sure. However, the best may not always “fit” when first we try it. Patience, trust, and prayer are a winning combination when the time comes for us to accept a change.
We’ll know when it’s coming. Our present circumstances will begin to pinch. Change means growth. It’s a time for celebration, not dread. It means I am ready to move ahead–that I have “passed” the current test.
