Habit Energy

If you are anything like me and have anxiety, sometimes I find myself doing things over and over for the comfort and the release from the anxiety that follows me everywhere. I clean, spend time on the treadmill, clean some more, homework, then clean some more... you can probably sense the pattern fairly quickly. I find the most relief when I am cleaning, on the treadmill or sleeping... and that's about it. Weekends are spent working on schoolwork or teaching classes and so I am sitting continuing to work on book analysis, lesson plans, and climate change discussions...... and I came upon this quote.

Trying to change our habits is hard...
Pick one thing to start...
Then do one more thing.

I have read this quote a few times in the last few weeks and I always find myself pondering it and really thinking about how I can apply in in my life. I have been trying to make small financial changes as well as conservation changes for the earth as well, but I would like to take this advice to try and change some of my personal compulsions.

When you read this quote, what comes immediately to your mind? What would you like to change? Where would you start?

  9. All right certain people! Do you want to keep bringing up 40 year old crap?! . . . . . . . . I am really tired of people who are doing their best - being beaten down over some silly mistakes that happened decades ago. Especially when they have done their very best to choose the right at all times, and did, even then . . . .People were sent here to be mortal, and to learn and to grow, and can't be perfect. . . . . .. Want to hear the real or bigger story, things that you have been spared?!!!!!!. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWY6EKC-uH0 . . . Jeffery Holland is right: "There is something in many of us that particularly fails to forgive and forget earlier mistakes in life—either our mistakes or the mistakes of others. It is not good. It is not Christian. It stands in terrible opposition to the grandeur and majesty of the Atonement of Christ. To be tied to earlier mistakes is the worst kind of wallowing in the past from which we are called to cease and desist." . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
