Change Is Not Easy...

"Willingness is a peculiar thing in that over a period of time, it seems to come, first with awareness, but then with a feeling of discomfort which causes me to then want to take some ACTION."

What I will take away from this quote from As Bill Sees It is that willingness is a process. Not always am I willing to jump up and make a change in myself once I realize that there is a part of me that needs a little working on. Sometimes I am comfortable the way that I am, other times some of these behaviors, thought processes or beliefs have been the way that I have survived in life up until now.

The Big Book has a phrase in it that says "Our old ideas have to be smashed." I know sometimes this can be painful. The book also tells me that, even more than I need to make a sudden change, I need to just be WILLING to make some daily progress rather than strive for perfection. Today I think this is something that I can do and I am willing to try.
