I find when I try to implement changes in my life, that it is difficult to overcome the habitual practices, and then sometimes there can be doubt in the ability to make the change. But I am heartened by one area of change, and that is to spend more time in stillness meditation and/or reflection each day. So if progress can be made in one area, it stands to reason, that perhaps giving it more time will allow for change in other areas. One doesn't generally transform everything all at once, a little voice tells me. Have patience for the metamorphosis of the caterpillar. Perhaps the process at this time is more like building the cocoon so that the transformations can take place, but it's one day at a time right now. Can I make better choices today for health, for sanity, for spiritual reflection? Can I look everyone in the eyed today and just be kind? Those small steps can build momentum, so that I'm not just stuck in patterns I can't get out of, but that I can see there are efforts and they are growing.
