I'm working on the Spring Challenge, and I noticed that this is the 4th time I've restarted the spark program in the past 5 years. Looking at it another way, I've been on this journey for the past 5 years with periodic lapses and recommitments. fortunately, I've never smoked, but I've read many times that most people who successfully stop smoking make several attempts before they can stop permanently.
I've decided to look at this process as a dress rehearsal. Each time I start, I fix some mistakes (probably make some new ones), and gradually improve my performance. I don't know when my "opening night" will be, but I'm satisfied if I can keep up with my rehearsals.
