I started 2016 determined to change some things about my life and I am happy to report that I am on the path I have always wanted. I am realizing that I actually have control over a lot of things in my life. A number of things about change though:
1. Change can be extremely frustrating
Anyone who has tried to quit a bad habit, change an irritating behavior built over a lifetime, will tell you that this is very hard. You wish someone had told you when you were young that one day you would regret starting whatever you now want to change. Unfortunately, habits sneak up on us and become ingrained so subtly that at the time you realize and want to break free, you discover that they are harder to separate from you.
