The Worst Habit Possible

o-NAIL-BITING-facebookHow aware are you of your habits? Nail biting, cracking knuckles, excessive social media…the list goes on and on. While, those things may not be life-altering, there is one behavior you may have that is.

Like anything else in life, fear can become a habit.

Each time you make a decision out of fear, you strengthen the urge to do the same thing the next time. Repetitive actions eventually become unconscious behaviors. The point at which fear becomes your default mode, is the point at which you begin living a very small version of what your life could be.

Be very aware of what you are choosing. Every decision opens up or closes possibilities. Make sure fear is not dictating what those possibilities may be.

Fertile Ground

Living-Soils-The-Key-to-Abundant-Plant-Growth-2During difficult periods, it can feel as if your life is in upheaval. Your very foundation feels compromised and it can be frustrating and disorienting.

However, we have to realize that the disruption may be in our best interests. Think about a garden. In preparation, the soil may be tilled in order to create fertile ground. It is only when the compacted soil is broken up that seeds can be planted. Not to mention that the tilling can also get rid of weeds.

When it comes to what you consider your foundation, does it leave room for expansion, or is it rigid and unyielding? Do your deepest beliefs allow for any progress? Is it possible that your core needs some shaking up?

Tweet this: Upheaval often sets the stage for growth.

Loose Ends

Loose-Ends-2Life isn’t always neat and tidy. Every situation doesn’t necessarily receive obvious closure. However, there are many situations where we choose to leave things dangling. It’s these willingly unresolved issues that get in the way of individual progression.

These loose ends keep parts of us rooted in the past and only when we acknowledge them will we be free to move untethered.

Is there anyone whom you owe an apology? Is there money that you must repay? Could you relieve someone else by giving them a much needed explanation? Have you said “I love you” to those needing to hear it? Have you forgiven yourself? Are there promises you did not fulfill?

The list is endless for the ways in which we leave ourselves (and others) hanging. So ask yourself, which loose ends need to be tied up? What is within your capability to release once and for all?

An eagle can’t fly underwater. A fish doesn’t swim through the air.

Too often we force ourselves to stay and fight in unnatural circumstances. Then, we wonder why things aren’t working.

One simple question.

Are you in your appropriate element?

The Permission to Feel

It’s human nature to compare yourself to the next person. What we own, what we look like, who we know, what we do…the list is endless. Much of these things, we take far more seriously than necessary.

fg0539But we also compare our emotions which can be to our detriment. If you are feeling disappointment, sadness, or shame, it’s easy to write it off as not being as profound as the next person’s experience. For example, you may not want to divulge your grief over a breakup because it’s not as bad as someone having cancer.

Though it’s helpful to eventually gain perspective on your situation, that does not mean you must stifle your suffering. Unexpressed emotion becomes toxic.

It’s imperative that you find the middle ground between wallowing and denial. You must find an outlet – a trusted friend, a journal, a therapist – where you can let it go. Emotions are always telling you something about yourself and you always have a right to figure out what that is.

Tweet this: You have permission to feel whatever it is that you feel.
