Good Morning: Bad Habits are Hard to Break

“A bad habit never disappears miraculously, it’s an
undo-it-yourself project.”
~Abigail “Dear Abby” Van Buren
 
Good morning 
Raise your hand if you have ever discovered a bad habit and wanted
it gone now! Examples:
    * Eating too much
    * Eating unhealthy foods
    * Stress
    * Negativity
    * Negative self-talk
    * Add your own
 
In today’s world, we often look for instant gratitude. When we want
change, we want it now! We seek a magic wand to make it “all
better.” The self-help and self-improvement industry is booming as
we seek solution after solution to ease the areas where there is
discomfort in our lives.
 
When we try to hunt down an instant solution to a problem that has
grown over time, we might find ourselves frustrated or doubting our
ability. We don’t build these bad habits in a day, and nor do
remove them in a day. Instead, as Abigail VanBuren writes, “It’s an
undo-it-yourself project.” We choose a course of action and take
daily steps until we walk out of the bad habit and into the new
habit.
 
Your Turn: Choose a habit that needs some work. Spend twenty
minutes today brainstorming small steps you can take to move
yourself away from the bad habit and toward the good habit you
desire to put in its place.
 
Today’s Affirmation: I can accomplish anything I set my mind to
accomplish.
