I just posted on the 7 of Fire about my crash. Well, it came after my "riding the tiger" of having gone from food stamps to almost a six figure income in my first five years of sobriety.

It's very true in life in general that there are highs and there are lows, just like the waves on the ocean. I described a major low coming after the major high I mentioned here, but there are all degrees of highs and lows.

I used to think there was going to be this ultimate high place I could get to and then, once there, life would be good and I'd always stay there. In sobriety, I've learned that's not true. It's a roller coaster or, as in Osho, a riding the waves up and down in life.
