Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!
Why is it when people talk about habits they tend to talk about bad habits? What about the good habits?
Everyone has habitual things that they do each day like getting up, brushing their teeth, walking the dog and making meals just to name a few. Those habits can be pretty important to life on planet earth.
Then some people have other habits that they engage in because it lights them up.
You may be one of those. You love to exercise or writing in a journal, perhaps you meet with a group each week that encourages growth in a particular field.
Breathing is a habit I am attached to. My body is habitual in the in and out of breath. There are infinite habitual activities that our physical body engages in each day.
But, the question is what is habitual that doesn’t serve you any longer? Habits can be wonderful! They can be contribution to our lives!
But some habits don’t serve us any longer. Like an obsessive compulsive we hang on to something way past it’s due date just because we are used to it. We always did it that way. What if there was another way for you-a better way-in that it was more of a contribution to your life?
I have recently been getting up earlier and enjoying it. My habit was to sleep later-I have that luxury but now getting up earlier has produced some unexpected gifts.
I have been getting up earlier to walk my furry friend at a local park and discovered many people doing the same thing. The dogs socialize which is wonderful for Jack and I have a new friend. I wouldn’t have met her if I hadn’t got up earlier because our paths wouldn’t have crossed. At the moment getting up early is serving me and Jack very well.
But I have a saying whenever I say I will never do something again-never say never because I never know what the future holds for me and something could change. Sleeping in might be the next best thing at that time!
Our habits can shelter us from the infinite possibilities that are available to us. We eat at the same restaurant, go to the same place for vacation and do the same exercise every day. But what are we missing if we would only try something different? What new place awaits your discovery? What new exercise will change it all up for you?
Same old, same old can be boring. Habitual activities can put us in a box of our making-however pretty-but a box is still a box. I myself want something more.
After all there are infinite possibilities available to us and with two questions you can open yourself to more. What else is possible? How can it get better?
Your life dear ones was not meant to be live by routine. Your life was meant to be joyously engaged in and like the child of the universe that you are, you are meant to be curious. It is your essential nature. For some it is hidden deep in the depths of worry, anxiety or otherwise known as fear. Your habits are merely the mechanism that you use to feel safe.
What might happen if you tossed a few of out or if that is too hard, set them aside for a few days and see how your life might change. Just because it is Friday doesn’t mean that you have to read Bliss Habits. You could wait until Saturday. (smile)
We highly recommend a little irregularity daily. It shakes the energies up and shakes you up enough to be able to experience something different that might be quite wonderful!
Shake, shake, shake…….
