The pain of change.

"When the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change, then you will change."

This is true I think in so many ways. Physically and spiritually. I've had so many issues with my new leg due to swelling going down and losing a good fit and yet I hate the change of getting a new leg (in addition to the cost, of course). I'm finally at the point where the pain (quite literally) of the leg is causing me to do something about it.

I've felt the same way with losing weight too. Until I'm extremely uncomfortable with the way things are, I won't put forth the effort to do something about losing weight.

And I think I'm getting there in other ways too. There are areas of my life I know and have known needed change and until I got to the point where I'm super uncomfortable/miserable with the way I am doing things, I won't put forth the effort needed to change. I have taken giant steps in the right direction over the past year and am so grateful for that, like peeling layers of an onion, more has been revealed of further work that needs to be done. It's painful & terrifying. But it's getting to the point where it's more painful not to change.
