You don't know what you don't know
Oscar Wilde once said "I'm not young enough to know everything"
Going to meetings constantly remind me that I have so much left to learn! I sometimes feel like I have a really good grasp on a certain situation in my life. Then out of the blue someone shares an experience that changes my perspective. Different layers of the onion peal back. I begin to understand things that I couldn't quite understand before.
Sometimes people talk about that 2 foot drop between the head and the heart. Some call it that aha moment. I like to think of it as an awakening. An awakening to something that I didn't understand before. Someone in my life once told me "you don't know what you don't know." How true that is for me today!
The evolution of our minds in recovery is amazing to me. But the only way that evolution is possible is by remembering that I don't know everything. I need to remain teachable, stay humble and above all keep my reliance upon a power greater than myself.
Until next time
