Day 16 – No More Lies

I am awake, I am alive, and this morning I am so thankful for habits now long gone. In this particular case, I am referring to a habit I had for far too long – the habit of lying to myself.

“I can’t stop myself from ….”
“I could never do that!”
“I will NEVER find that dang …..”

And on and on the lies went. I didn’t realize my spirit was listening. I didn’t realize that just like we don’t notice red cars when we buy a white one, my spirit was determined to do what I said until I changed what I said.

Now I realize I can stop myself from eating chips or having another can of pop or scrolling … if I make the choice to stop. It might not be easy. It might be WAY easier to give in but I could do it, if I wanted to. The questions becomes, do I really want to?

And truth be told, there were many things I couldn’t do until I learned how. And for the record, I NEVER say I won’t find something anymore. Rather, now I say to myself, “Okay I know it is here. If I calm down and think logically, I know I will find it.”

And it works.

So my friend, are you lying to yourself? And if yes, isn’t it time to stop?
