Keep Doing What You've Always Done

Aug 04, 2021

You know that saying, “if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got”? Have you ever thought about the habits you’ve created in your life? The ones that maybe don’t serve you so well, but you do it anyway, simply because you always have. Why is that a thing? 


We are so quick to write off our poor decisions because “that’s just who I am” or “this is just what my family does.” Think about the things in your life that are like that. How often do you use your upbringing, your past, or those bad habits as an excuse for not improving your life? How often do you write off a decision as something you choose because of something that happened to you before? 


Here’s an unpopular opinion: You get to decide what choices you make in your life. 


This isn’t a conversation about privilege. This isn’t a conversation about manifesting your dreams. This is real talk. 


It is so easy to blame your failed relationships on that one bad one… even if it was 10 years ago. It is so easy to stay in an abusive marriage because your mom/sisters/friends are in them too. It is so easy to suffer through your in-laws’ rude remarks because they are family. It is so easy to not eat right because it’s more convenient to eat fast food. It is so easy to sit down and watch 3 hours of TV at night or spend 2+ hours playing on your phone instead of doing that 30-minute workout you wanted to do. It is easy, but it likely isn’t serving your highest good. 


This wouldn’t be real talk if I didn’t ask you to be honest with yourself. What is it that you truly want? How many of the decisions you make every day are out of habit and ease instead of a conscious decision that gets you closer to your goal? You cannot tell me that you want to find more peace and happiness, but then not make any changes to get you closer to that goal. You can’t tell me you want a deeper relationship with God if you don’t spend time in prayer. You can’t tell me you want to be a more present parent if you don’t put your phone down and interact with your kids. 


Instead of using this excuse of, “that’s just how I am.” Give yourself the opportunity to be something different. Give yourself the space to learn something new. You are capable of creating new habits and making different choices. 


This week, I challenge you to make some different choices. Begin to tell yourself a new story. Instead of, “that’s just who I am” let the story be, “that’s just who I was” Instead of, “I’m too hurt to be in a healthy relationship” let it become, “I’m using this hurt to become a better version of myself.” 


Becoming Purely You isn’t about making peace with being stressed, burnt out, or unhealthy. Becoming Purely You is about deciding that you are ready to make the changes necessary to live in peace, release your stress, and live a life that you’re proud of.
