Message from Dr. B. (Linda Paulk Buchanan): Change is rarely easy. Like the turtle, trying to change can make us vulnerable. Change can be slow. But with persistence, it happens! It takes a lot of motivation to risk the vulnerability and hard work to change. If you're feeling stuck, you might ask yourself how important is the change you want to make and what would need to happen to make it more important. If it's already very important, ask yourself what is the first thing that needs to happen to begin making progress. A current ACE participant grounds herself before meals by saying to herself, "Progress, not perfection."
