I am a creature of habit. That’s right I admit it. The thing is there is good and bad in habits. It’s good to be diligent tasks and goal set before you. Committed to a health and hygiene regiment An end to a means. Like I said it is good as there is growth and a steady progression moving forward. Where it becomes problematic is when I get set in my way. I become complacent as I find it easier to dwell in that comfort zone. I stop growing and learning and It become difficult to make positive changes.
Change is a necessary part of life. We must learn and grow so we can evolve or mature. Allowing our self to get stuck in that comfort zone we limit our progress and limit our opportunities for greater success. What it boils down to is that positive resolution to achieve a set goal becomes a yoke or weight around our neck. Ultimately, slowing us down,wearing us out, and eventually stopping our forward motion. Making it impossible to achieve our goal.
Old habits are, for me, hard to break. I tend to hold on to those feel good experiences. with the hope of reliving that feel god moment Only to be disappointed that I didn’t achieve the same wow factor. It is like seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time. I must have stood staring in a better part of an hour in awe. That experience wowed me out of my socks. I have been back since then and although it is totally amazing it didn’t compare to that very first experience.
I guess there is something to be said about living each new moment. Living past moments only robs you the blessing of the present moment. I think I’m finally starting to get it.nick
