    Making positive changes is harder

    than it seems - negative habits are difficult to change, and positive ones are easy to lose. It takes effort, strength, commitment, and a lot of love for yourself and those around you, but it's a goal that is worth working towards. I have been dealt my fair share of bad hands...
