This morning a phrase kept bounding through my thoughts – relapse is part of the recovery process.
It is applicable to so many things that it began to make me overwhelmed. Imperfection is not an unsuitable flaw, it is the primary path. We aren’t climbing ladders up, we need to be descending them down to the dirt for which we come from. We are but clods of imperfect dirt with a very short time on earth to praise our imperfections and see that of the Mystery that surrounds us all.
Damned the guilt and the shame. Praise be the forgiveness and a new day to fail again.
