Move Forward

Sometimes the hard work of change requires but a small, simple act to begin. There is no need for  high drama, no sweeping proclamations before a wide audience. Just stop doing the same thing over and over again--in silence.

Need to get a toxic person out of your life once and for all? Stop picking up the phone when his name pops up on the screen. Ignore the text messages. Keep doing that and eventually he will go away--for good. That's when you will feel like you broke out of the last of many crippling chains.

Want to stop drinking? Simple. Put down the bottle. Then carry on, one day at a time. Sooner or later, you won't even think about picking up a glass of Pino Noir to drown your troubles.

Just say to yourself--enough. Then move forward, leaving the destructive behavior behind. Things will get better with time. Trust me.

Happy New Year.
