Summer School: Day Five

I don’t have to go there.

Old habits and patterns die hard. In order to let go of them requires intention, awareness, and willingness. As I learn to step back and observe myself, I am able to recognize when I am about to fall into the same old ruts. And once I see them, I have a responsibility to change them. Just because I’ve gone there before doesn’t mean I have to go there now.

What is one habit or pattern that you would like to leave behind? Where do you typically go when triggered, and where might you go instead?
