"I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." ~ Maya Angelou
Trying to make a change, any change, can be a tremendous struggle. Life is hard enough trying to keep up with everyday demands, let alone trying to take time and energy away from our daily routines to work on improving ourselves and our lives. The effort needed to change can wear us down, especially when we've tried before and have been unsuccessful. It becomes easy to lose hope. That's why so many of us simply give in and accept the status quo of our lives. But in that acceptance, that status quo (whether we like it or not) becomes our Human Experience.
You don't have to accept the status quo. Know better. Do better.
