Old Habits Die Hard

Old habits die hard.: “Pisces :Sadly the serious energy from yesterday continues today and is further enhanced by two difficult lunar connections (in the afternoon). To counteract this you will need to keep a low profile and not challenge anyone not of your generation or who is an authority figure. Try not to work out of old habits, there are better ways of doing what you do, seek them out.”

It’s all true! Old habits die hard and there is no better way to test them than to be confronted with the tough stuff. You tend to reach for the old tools without thinking. Then you wonder why you feel as defeated and uninspired as you always do under those circumstances. the problem is we often don’t have time to think, we just have to act. So you acct out of habit when the going gets tough. I figure you have to put the desired reactions into place so that you do a bit of training in different reactions before it all gets too hard. Since I opened this blog I am fitter, stronger, happier and more in control…but I still fall off my perch and start stressing because I will not learn to change my reactions under given circumstances…and that in spite of learning better ways. So back to the drawing board and off to a better set of behaviours!!
