Today you will do many things our of habit. It might be a good habit or it might be a bad habit. Some of these actions will propel you forward and some are keeping you stuck or even causing you to slip farther and farther away from the life you always dreamed of living. There is a saying in psychology, “When the pain of staying the same exceeds the pain of changing, change takes place.” Are you there yet?
You are free to change your life. It is not easy. It takes work. But it can happen. An alcoholic can get so sick and tired of being sick and tired that he finally decides to put down the bottle and pursue sobriety. An unhealthy obese person can realize the pain she feels every day because of her eating choices and lack of exercise can make a decision to change her life and become a true fitness fanatic. And the person living a small, uneventful, boring life can grow so uncomfortable with that kind of living that he makes changes today to begin living a larger more compelling life.
Where is your pain? Is it moving you to adjust your life? Are there things you need to change today? It can happen. It happens all the time. You are not a pawn in the game of life. You have more strength than you realize. The pain you have been feeling can be a great catalyst for the change that will make all the difference for you. You can do this!
