“He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”
― Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera
This quote reminds me that I am not, at any given moment, “done” growing as a person. Every day, I make mistakes. Every day, I learn something new. And every moment, I am a different person than I was a moment before. Life is about progress, not perfection, for me. It’s not about becoming “complete”, but rather becoming better all the time. In the past, I saw life as something that I just needed to grit my teeth and get through. Today, in recovery, I see every second as a gift and opportunity to get closer to my Higher Power and to myself. When I do that, everything else just falls into place.
