Since I’ve had a yard, I longed to have a picture worthy flower garden. Similarly, I’ve always wanted to be an active person who exuded fitness and positivity. The lessons I learned as a gardener helped me progress to my wellness goals once I stopped investing in quick-payoff behaviors and work toward long-term habit changes.
Each time I wore these fun, festive pumps I got loads of compliments…and a nagging backache. I wish I could tell you that ill-fitting shoes were the only things in my life about which I’m in denial. Alas, no. I’ve come to realize my relationship with these pumps is similar to a few other not so great habits I have.
A story about the lesson I learned from keeping an unopened gift in my closet for nearly a year.
