We are what we repeatedly do

The last sentence of this quote has been stuck in my head.  We are what we repeatedly do.  I don't know about you, but I have a few things around the edges of my life that I'd like to change.  To do better.  To be better.  Not in a "change who you are" kind of way, but there are always things that we aren't doing so great at that need some attention.

I know you know what I mean.  I can't be the only one.

I posted, last week, about tackling my fear problem.  Even now I want to say lesser words, like stress, anxiety and concern.  But I know it really is all just fear.  Or not so much "just"!  I am praying my way through and claiming Truth over those feelings and I'm doing better.  Sleeping better.  On Sunday I made a very long list of all the things I had to get done at work by the end of today.  Most of it has been crossed off, and I'll tackle some more this morning.  Because I made the list on paper I've been less fearful of forgetting things, and then being more relaxed.  Repeatedly praying through my fear is making me less fearful.  It's working!

My next thing?  My health.  I just need to make, and act, on better choices.  My blood tests all told me I am in good shape, but the outside shell tells a different story about my relationship with food.  So, I am working on being more mindful, deciding on what I want that outside shell to be like, and then acting towards that.  Small steps.

What do you want to be, that seems like a struggle right now?  Let's be people that act excellent, in order to see the results that come from habits rather than willpower!

I've definitely found that replacing one habit at a time is the beat way to form new habits.

Changing my habits rather than finding more willpower sounds do-able!

Great post

I do love that quote, thank you for sharing. Without even realising it, we all are what we repeatedly do - so this year I hope to make sure that what I repeatedly do is for the benefit of me, my dreams and my purpose - no one else ;) Great post xx

Awesome quote. I'm feeling the same with that outer shell! I love the idea of examining the things we do to find ways to work better or change small things for big positive impact. I hope you keep finding positive change from the habit changes :)

What a fantastic quote. I'm definitely trying to form better habits this year, and really trying to focus on what I want.

such a great quote - i admit to struggling with doing things that i know are good for me but that i resist or don't make a priority.
