Have you ever had a pair of jeans that you just hate to put in the trash bin. I mean you have them broke in, comfortable, soft, and yes, almost down to nothing but white thread. Holes in the knees and other places that your mom says is disgraceful. Habits are like those pair of jeans.
I remember hearing someone talk about you can tell how an adult was raised by watching what they do after a meal. If they are full of energy, it probably means after a meal their mother more than likely sent them outside to play. The other scenario is after a meal the adult wants to lay down and take a nap. It goes without saying that their mother probably had them take a nap after their meal.
With my dealing of being bi-polar I have had to deal with some of my old habits. Negative thinking, procrastination, thinking about what it is like to be dead, all those and a multitude of more. I am the first to admit I am a fifty-seven year old man who is set in his ways and I do not like change.
To deal with those old nasty, musty smelling habits you must commit yourself to change. Change should mean progression, new attitude and outlook on life around you. Not holding onto the pass, but trying to look ahead with the effort of moving forward.
The best place to start with old habits is taking those old pair of jeans and placing them in the trash can!
