So often I'm trying to change my behaviour. Change what I'm doing, what I'm saying, what I'm eating, what I'm behaving (I know the last one sounds funny). I realise that any lasting change is going to come from the inside. To do better, I have to be better.
I'm not entirely sure how that happens. I know that my actions will eventually follow any belief that I hold to be true. Its like the difference between saying you love someone ten times a day and truly loving them. Its not that saying it is a problem but true love understands silence, can communicate without words and actions, come naturally. There was a day SO was driving and he had to slam the brakes abruptly, he immediately reached out his hand to cover me...it was like a reflex reaction, perfectly natural, not thought out at all. Not like that would save me but his 'basic instinct' was to protect. Such things are not taught.
So today is reflecting on the why's behind the what's. The thinking and mindset that fuels the behaviour. If that thinking and mindset can be changed, the actions become reflex.
Hmming all the way.
