Build our ability through action – conscious action – to recognize and make a choice to change, or not.

We bring our energy to each situation. It’s up to us to be courageous and choose to notice our habits and if we are happy with them. When we consciously choose what we do we can make change. When we do something for another change doesn’t last. This discussion, stories, and even more questions are posted as Jessica Dewell and Debra Oakland explore a lot of aspects of breaking out of being set in our ways.
