Teaching an old dog new tricks..

old dog

Anyone who owns an animal knows how long it takes to teach them “new tricks..”

..but they will also tell you that nothing is harder than breaking old, bad habits.

The same holds true for humans.

 Like lint, I have picked up quite an assortment of habits over the years, some of which have served me poorly and need to be addressed.

One of the surprises of middle age has been that the process of learning and unlearning hasn’t stopped. Lucky for me, my “play-doh-ego” is still soft & malleable enough to be remolded.  It’s a challenge, but I love the idea that at my age I am still a work in progress.

So in answer to the question can you teach an old dog new tricks and break a few bad habits?

The answer is absolutely yes, if you are willing.
