Repeat what is worthy.
It’s easy to develop habits. An action or choice becomes familiar or comfortable. We repeat it because it feels like a default.
And sometimes we’ve taken a reasoned decision. Our choice is to our benefit, likely ongoing. Other times, we are simply in a rut. We do what we do because it is what we’ve always done.
When we find ourselves acting or reacting habitually, it may be beneficial to take a breath and ponder whether the repetition is good for us. Sometimes it will be and sometimes it won’t. But it will be helpful for us to make a conscious decision.
Today’s message reminds me that changing a habit is sometimes useful. When I question ingrained behavior and choices, I’m offering myself the opportunity to learn.
Please reflect and share. How often to you examine your habits?
