In today’s post we will talk about things to consider before starting a new habit. Change, real change is difficult. It may be easy to wear a new hairstyle and pin up some new affirmations on the fridge, but that’s just glossing the exterior. Deep change is different. It’s the kind of transformation caterpillars go through in order to become butterflies. Why change is difficult? Change is painful because we cling to our idea of who we are …’warts and all’. That’s why there’s a sense of loss when we change. We lose part of what we think defines us. Even unhappiness, or being overweight, or feeling bad about ourselves, is something we cling to. That’s why it’s so hard to change.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France

Why continuity is important? In order to feel grounded, a certain amount of continuity in life is important. Make sure you don’t change too much at once. If you plan to make major changes to your life, just focus on one thing at a time.

Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights. ~Pauline R. Kezer

Come back tomorrow on more inspiration on things to consider building a habit for good.
