It's hard to let go of things to which we have grown accustomed.
Think about it and you will realize that you can easily apply this to many things. Let me go ahead and mention a few - you may want to make a list of all of the ones that you come up with and see if there is a need to rid your life of any of these.
Bad habits are hard to rid our lives of due to the fact that we have grown accustomed to them. This goes back to last week's podcast/blog that talked about things that we allow will continue in our lives.
Bad habits, such as poor eating habits, not exercising, having a negative attitude, listening to and participating in gossip, not giving it our all at the workplace, not giving it our all in our relationships, a lack of self-discipline - these are but a few of some bad habits that can make a "nest" in our lives.
And they will stay there as long as we allow them to do so.
You have likely seen this quote before: "The best way to break a habit is to drop it."
Easier said than done? ABSOLUTELY! But that does NOT mean that it's something we should avoid.
Hey, listen, I understand that it's hard to rid our lives of those "comfort foods" if one is wanting to lose weight but, at the same time, it is an absolute NECESSITY to just let them go - rid your life of them - IF you want to have any success at all in losing weight.
We often try to hang on to these things (whatever they may be in your life) while trying to figure out how to still allow them in our lives and still have progression or improvement of our lives.
But sometimes, you just have to let it go and walk away.
And, yes friend, sometimes that includes people.
This is likely the HARDEST situation to deal with and the HARDEST from which to walk away and let go. But sometimes it is necessary.
I'm not talking about a hasty decision and I'm not taking this lightly or talking about giving yourself an easy "out" so that you can allow inappropriate actions into your life.
There is so much I could say here that would apply. I do want to encourage you to listen to the podcast with this (see links below) and I may even continue this further in the next article and podcast.
Do the work in spending time diligently taking inventory of your life. What (or who) are you allowing in your life that you need to simply "let go"?
It's not always easy. That's why I share these thoughts with you, for you. We all need a little encouragement along the way.
And, as you continue along this journey of life, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
