It's not about that ONE thing, it's about the habits you form.
That “one” thing won’t make a difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That ONE cookie. That ONE skipped workout. That ONE chore you keep neglecting. That ONE social commitment you bail on. That ONE extra drink. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ None of those things ALONE will make a difference. They really won’t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which is why it’s so easy to talk ourselves into that “one” piece of dessert, or into skipping out on the hard things, the things we don’t “feel like” doing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because they really won’t make a noticeable difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But it’s not about the noticeable difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉🏼👉🏼IT’S ABOUT THE HABITS & LIFESTYLE YOU CREATE BY CONTINUALLY LIVING THIS WAY. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: 🗣you aren’t one way in one area of your life and another way in another area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚠️Who you are is who you are, how you are is how you are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you consistently bail on health goals/commitments, guess what sister— you probably also bail on a lot of other goals/commitments in your life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This morning I *really* didn’t want to go on a run, and I knew that this ONE run wasn’t going to make or break anything for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But because I don’t want to become the type of person who says she’s going to do things & then doesn’t do them— I went. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I keep doing this as much as I can, so that I can create a LIFESTYLE of following through, showing up & doing hard things, even when I don’t “feel like” doing them.
