Still in the spirit of change – and becoming aware of what you need to change in your life in order to be happy – I stumbled across this quote from Deepak Chopra.
I think one of your biggest obstacles when it comes to growing and changing is the nasty power of habits. Okay, there are a few good habits as well. Like washing your hands when you’ve been to the bathroom, that’s a good one. Or looking both ways before crossing the street, that’s another very valuable one. But habits in the sense of just blindly going through your day on autopilot – yuck!
“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way,
ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
Breaking a habit might not be the easiest thing to do but when you succeed or even just realize the potential affect it could have on your life, it’s so worth it.
(this is where I would do a little twirl while singing something about sweet freedom and rainbows.. but that would totally ruin the seriousness of this post.)
