Do you ever wonder what you do or analyze why? So many of our behavioral patterns, our decision making and our values are set to default.
I watch patterns emerge in my clinic and in my own life. All of us on autopilot, doing what we have always done JUST BECAUSE…
I have been asking myself recently, is that a good enough reason? Is it good enough that I do what I do just because it’s always been done this way, by me or others? Should I be pushing the envelope, living more on the edge and trying to break through my own limitations and barriers?
Just because I have always done it this way doesn’t mean it has always worked for me… now that is a HARD truth to face!
What is working for me?
What isn’t working for me?
What do I want to change?
What do I need to change?
Why do I need to change it?
When it comes to longevity, health and living my best life these are the questions I am forcing myself to consider.
I don’t just want to be where I am JUST BECAUSE. I don’t want to stagnate, I don’t want to take things for granted and I don’t want to accept less that what I am capable of.
In all reality, if I am honest with myself I was compromising deeply even before my assault in 2019. I was stagnating..I was not very happy overall, sure in a few areas of my life but not where I could have been. My health was not as strong as it could have been even though I knew what was possible.
Now, things have drastically changed. I am strong, fit, healthy and uncompromising when it comes to what I allow into my life. I won’t allow unnecessary drama or stress into my life and I am fast to implement boundaries…but I still believe I can be doing better.
Just because I have been doing it this way doesn’t mean it has worked for me. I’m ready to step into a new uncompromising phase — more intentionality, more depth, more self-forgiveness, more self-compassion and more stripping away of the behavioral patterns and the default.
…..no more just because…
