Ever make a physical change–weight loss, begin working out, etc.–and in oh say, 29 days, you feel sooooooo much better? You are lighter and brighter and stronger. OMG you must look like Jessica Biel by now! Then you look in the mirror and BOOM. Reality punches you in the gut, throws a pie in your face and dares you to eat it. Laughs at you and says Really? This will take longer than 29 days you silly silly optimist.
It sure didn’t take 29 days to get here and it won’t take 29 to get out.
