Breaking Habits

She'd been so hard on herself for so long, it had become a habit. So she reminded herself that every moment, she could choose to create a new habit - and she did. - Queenisms™

Speaking to yourself in a negative way or engaging in destructive behavior is a habit built up over time – but the good news is that nasty habit can be broken. Name the habit, decide you are committed to breaking the habit and then set up a series of steps to help you do so. It really is that simple. Name, choose, plan and execute. Now we’re not saying the execution is always easy. In fact, changing a habit usually brings up fear, which is often the reason we developed the habit in the first place. But these steps work. And, a circle of supportive, loving, agenda-free fellow travelers can make the execution part less lonely, fearful and hard. Is there a habit you’d like to break?

    I have been working on acknowledging my bad habits and taking steps to deal with them. You all are a big help in giving me a positive attitude to do so.

    Bravo, Queen Sharon. We sometimes have to acknowledge our bad habits over and over again. For example, ice cream (lol). But it’s such a worthwhile thing to do and our happiness is worth the effort. We’re cheering for you Queen Sharon.

    This post was meant for me today. I have a few bad habits I want to break- but the biggest one is talking negatively to myself.
    I want to be as kind to myself as I am to others and I want to stop the negative voices in my head telling me I am not enough and that I do not deserve to be happy.

    Great realization Queen Lisa. Why not start by saying “I will rephrase every negative message I catch because I deserve the love and support of me.”
