New shoes are rarely comfortable.

They give you blisters.

They make you miss your old shoes.

But you can’t go back.

Those shoes have holes in them now.

They don’t fill the need anymore.

They have to be thrown away.

New habits are like those new shoes.

They’re uncomfortable at first.

You will want to go back to your old ways.

But you can’t, at least not if you want to progress in life.

Those old habits need to be left behind, they’re not helpful anymore.

You’ll limp at first.

Then, you’ll move on and if you stick with it, they’ll feel better with each passing day.
