This bit about re-inventing oneself is central. To get to the parts that need to be changed, you’ve got to do a fair amount of dis-assembly. There are no instructions. You’ll dive in and stumble across whole sub-assemblies you’ll have to take apart. It’s like on some cars when the mechanic says “as long as I’m in there, I might as well change the timing belt.” And there’s a good chance there might be a few parts left lying on the floor when you’re done.
You’ve got to reverse engineer the diagram of what makes you tick. How are you wired? Where are the switches and junction boxes that control addictions for food or alcohol? How buried is your anger sensor? Odds are you’ve never accessed these compartments, and the screws may be rusty. Just know that you won’t run leaner or on less stress if you’re not thorough in your re-build.
Sometimes I prefer to think of it as trying to repack the footlocker. I take each item out, making sure it’s something I still use. I inspect it to confirm that it’s not broken or full of holes, or out of date. If I don’t need it, it gets tossed. I can’t afford to carry the weight of half-assed convictions. I’m running light. And I need to be able to put my hands on something easily, without rummaging.
