a setback

“ When you make these promises, you feel light hearted, elated, perhaps even connected to your higher Self. You’re ready to honor your longing for health and happiness. And deep down, you know you’re up to the challenge. But after the initial enthusiasm wears off and you hit your first setback (the tempting latte, the skipped yoga practice), your inner critic pipes up. “What’s wrong with you? Why can’t you make this simple change?” The voice gets louder and meaner, and soon self-doubt creeps in. Your inspiration fades —and poof! —your old habits return.”
