Question: Could the 20-year “you” of so long ago run the complexities of the life you live today?
Answer: Definitely not.
Even if you had your act “together” at that young age, younger “you” did not have the knowledge nor the skills to manage all the details of the life you now have.
As they say, “You didn’t even know what you didn’t know.”
Yet, as you’ve aged and faced a myriad of experiences, you have grown and become wise, learning how to handle what is presented to you, eventually making it part of your routine.
The same rule is true when you face challenges in changing habits. The tools and skills you need are waiting for you. They will be there when you’re ready.
