Truth be told, I feel like I’m the last person who should be talking about habits.
Do I really have any, beyond squeezing toothpaste from the bottom that is, or running errands on Thursdays and feeding cats at 8:00am?
Okay, 8:00am feedings is their habit not mine.
Habits stay hidden for a reason.
Either they’re good for you and became part of normal, or they’re not so good and you don’t really want to know.
Because if you do, then you start shoulding all over yourself – should start, should stop, should someday.
Should creates a pretty broad swath between now and when then begins.
Health clubs count on this every January 1st.
The will and mind are mighty powerful when called upon to rise to a challenge.
But therein lies the problem.
Energy is focused on reaching an end, not a life or a way of being.
I’ve sucked it up for 90 days only to mark each square on the calendar until my time was up.
The only commitment was to prove something wrong – including me. Or say “I’ll show you.”
But the reason is not grounded in the Knowing of a new way.
Change happens when I let go.
Sourced from a decision made deep within.
We’re not always aware of why, but an Inner inkling can light the way forward.
Twenty-one days gives us something to hold onto.
A chance to believe what we can’t, or don’t want to right now.
The Inner Decision, however hidden, has to be made for the rough spots ahead to be navigated.
Struggle does not create openings for change or flow.
Opposition, competition and defiance fuel more of the same.
A habit can look like it’s working when really nothing has changed.
A habit will not transform you into something you want to be.
Transformation begins long before, in who you are being.
Your being decides first and successful habits follow.
Be clear about who you are and you’ll live a life of purpose.
Habits will meld into normal or fall by the wayside.
