Are old habits infecting your life?

When I was a kid growing up Catholic we weren’t allowed to eat meat on Friday’s, just fish. It was a sin. To this day, fish just don’t seem to taste as good on Fridays. I realize that habits are learned and habits can be broken, but habits that operate just under the radar can follow you through life.

Watch out for those subtle, reflexive habits that were once neurotically imprinted. For example, a faulty, historical perception that you’re not okay or you’ll never be happy. Challenge emotional fictions with here-and-now facts.

And if you happen to be eating meat this Friday, enjoy!
