My mother told me that I needed to change everything about my life, because I didn’t listen to other people’s advice. So, I began to change from wearing some kinds of new style clothes. But the one thing I just couldn’t give up was my cowboyboots1.
I went to my mother and said, "I want to change many things, but I don’t think I have to give up my cowboy boots."My mother said, "I don’t know how hard it is. If you do not want to give them up, you will not able to change."
"Okay!"I said, "I’ll give up the boots for 30 days just to show my determination2 to change."So, I bought a pair of tennis shoes. After 30 days of not wearing my cowboy boots, my feet stopped hurting.
I never stopped to think that the boots were causing3 my feet to hurt, or some of my other habbits were causing my life to hurt. That means if every day I do something different in such a small way, maybe some big change will happen.
