Is it possible to change?

Dear Carolyn,

Can people change? I’ve been reading you for a long time and you seem like an optimistic gal. I don’t think you’d be giving all the advice about eating healthy, getting fit, improving your mind and such if you didn’t believe it. So please answer honestly. I want to change my unhealthy ways but I don’t know if it’s truly possible.


Dear Frank,

Yes and I don’t know.

Yes, I have seen people change for the better. I have seen hard core smokers decide to quit and never pick up another cigarette. I’ve interviewed truckers who have lost more than 100 pounds by changing to a healthy diet and adding simple exercise routines to their daily life. I’ve talked to readers who went back to college and pursued their dreams. In my own life, I’ve kicked addictions and overcome limitations.

I don’t know if you can change your life. I can say that the ones who succeed say they made the decision quietly and then pushed through all the obstacles, one day at a time. Everything is possible if you can imagine it.

I’m just say’n,
