Today I’m preparing for a seminar tomorrow, open to the public, at the Venice YMCA on Monday at 11:30am.
It’s Sunday afternoon. So far, today included my morning workout on the bike, making a dish for a pot luck dinner this evening at a friend’s house, and generally “putzing around” doing stuff I don’t have time to do during the week.
As I worked, I began thinking about habits. Why is it sooo difficult to change some of them in a lasting way?? When you break it down to simple biology, we are a “mish-mosh” of chemicals, electrical charges, DNA, helix-filled chromosome patterns, electrons, neutrons, protons and now according to quantum physics, quarks! Phew. What was I saying about change…?
There’s no doubt that we are creatures of habit. All of the above mentioned items? They fall into line and obey rules of patterning unconscious beliefs and actions. This creates what we know to be “ourselves”.
When we decide to do something differently, especially if there is some emotional resistance, it is a REALLY BIG DEAL. Wonder why many of us are unsuccessful in making change happen??? If you’re in Southwest Florida, come to tomorrow’s seminar and find out. The Y is on 701 Center Rd. in Venice. Just stop at the front desk and tell them you’re there for the 11:30 seminar on Change.
