Each of us has our “thing”– you know the vice, habit or trait that for years we have wanted to be different, for years we have pursued ways to change it. We want to read more, we want to lose weight, we want to stop smoking, we want to manage our money better, we want to stop yelling so much, we want to get more organized, we want to …. we want to….
We hear of many great ways to fix it, the quick fixes are always the most enticing— “30 days to a new you”— yet they never seem to last and we find ourselves back to where we were before, except this time a little more defeated and feeling a little more despair. For many, at some point, we just accept that it is what it is and there is nothing we can do to make it better.
