Day 79: Stop Fighting the Old

I saw this quote on Facebook today and loved it.   It really makes you think about change, particularly when you try to create it in your life.  Too often we try to change our old habits, and wind up failing (more on this in a few days).  What we really need to do is create new habits.  Let’s fill in the time our mind and body would focus on whatever it is we want to change.  If we give our time and energy to a new endeavor, not only are we more apt to stay the course (because new is fun), we’re more apt to overcome any additional obstacle because we don’t know better.  Soon, we’ll have forgotten about the old way of life and be consumed with the new.

That Socrates was a smart guy.  Someone should write that in a book.

As always: This is simply my journal as I try to better myself. I hope it inspires you to focus on yourself. Make 2013 YOUR year.
