Just a bit better.
Frankly, at the beginning, it would have been tough to see the “better.”
My changes were, essentially, being less unhealthy and less of an asshole.
They are challenging because, inside my head, I only “see” one side of life.
In the moment, my only experience is discomfort.
They are challenging because, I had created a life that supported my poor decisions.
Avoided Setbacks and Unforced Errors.
We never experience avoided health problems, relationships not falling apart, sidestepped addictions, bypassed financial ruin…
I’m grateful the 20-something version of myself was sick of being sick and decided to go for a walk.
