We do a lot of things out of habit. Most of what we do on a daily basis has become ritualistic. Ever drive somewhere and think "dang, I didn't realize I was already here." Your mind was on auto-pilot. Within those things, are actions and statements we should change or replace.
1. Living your life according to the thoughts and rules of others. Most people, out of habit, will try to tell you how to live your life. They will tell you why what you are doing isn't quite right. "You should add this in right there." "It would look better if.." These things are to be considered but not taken as religion.
2. Adhering to fear. Fear is (f)alse (e)vidence (a)ppearing (r)eal. It's not real, it's only a method in which you perceive things. Once you realize this, you can go on to accomplish the goals you set more quickly. You can go into some arenas you wouldn't otherwise. More on fear here.
3. Holding your pee. THIS IS SO BAD. Don't hold your pee, people. When you feel the 'I really gotta go' feeling, find the nearest restroom and hang it up. Many of us, prefer to avoid public restrooms, but I think if we thought about it from a more health-related stance, we'd go when we needed to. You could lose the ability to sense that you have to go. Your bladder could burst! (scare tactic..lol) Just don't hold your pee over 3 to 6 hours. And don't get in the car with a full bladder, if you can help it.
4. Waiting for the perfect moment. There is no such thing. The best moments are the ones you create. Life isn't handing out creative and special moments. You initiate them by scheduling time to spend with the ones you love. By intentionally making the moment great for someone else. When my husband comes home, I embrace him with supreme excitement, because I'm thankful to have him in my life and I think on that to help create a special moment for us.
5. Eating junk food, drinking soda and the like. Guys, I won't bore you with all the things I want to say, right now. BUT Junk food and soda have no nutritional value as it compares to 'real food' (i.e. veggies, meat, nuts..) And I know a lot of us eat junk food because it's most appeasing to our tastebuds. You wanna know something interesting? Your tastebuds will adapt to what you give them. Meaning, if you start eating better, in the beginning, things might taste funny, but after while, your tastebuds will crave what you've given them over a span of time.
