We set our intent on giving up on a bad habit, toxic ways or toxic people. We give it our best shot, get the momentum going and then.. Bamm, we fall of the wagon.
Then, the wise thing is to be aware of the trigger that led us to indulge in old ways. Recognise it and set an alternate response to the trigger. Teach your mind, visualise it and it will be done!
For a long time, you’re happy about building nurturing new habits or having nourishing people around you. Then, some event/situation builds up and BAMMM…. Back to old defeating ways.
Building a new habit consists of unlearning and learning. It can be a complex process. But, all you need is consistency to keep getting up, every time you fall. Once you really see, that you need to change something in your life. You can do it! Real change takes a moment of understanding. And weeks, sometimes months of practicing.
In all your weak times, Remind yourself, why you started in the first place! And see the small tiny positive changes that have been produced; with the mere effort. So a little more, and you will be there!
Everyone has their own journey carved out. But, motivate your fellow-passengers. In-turn, be motivated to nourish your life with good habits, people and environment. If they can do it, you can do it too!! And the exhiliration you feel, is surreal. 🙂 🙂
But, it has the power to connect us to what we need 🙂
Faith, is so easy when things are working out our way. But, in dark times it’s so easy to slip, it’s so easy to doubt and lose the momentum we have set forth.
There will always be naysayers, fearmongers, non-believers. And if you are the first of them then, your faith may easily get lost. Sometimes your commitment/faith is tested in the form of challenges and failures. But, remember keep your eyes on the prize and you will always find a way.
And when you cannot see the prize or your goal seems hazy, refocus. Set your intent to find a solution. All we need is a speck of hope. Don’t quit when you cannot find any hope, have faith in your hard work. Just because you cannot see the path, does not mean there is no path. You just need to have faith, that you are being prepared for the grand prize. You need to know, more nurturing must be done.
Finally feed your faith and let your fears, doubt starve. Keep scintillating 🙂
