Year 2, Week 18 ~ Is Chipping Away at the Cement, Related to Overcoming Codependence?

For me, breaking away from old habits that did not serve me well (ie. breaking away the cement) is like trying to overcome codependence.

Yup. I’ve been to that place.

I did not know how to move forward, or had the fear of moving forward, because that place of “quiet desperation” had become my comfort zone. I knew what I could expect there. My life was not a mystery; it was certain.

Then the time came when I realized that life, that comfort zone, did not really serve me. It was counterproductive and unhealthy for me to continue on that path. My behaviors were blocking goals, dreams, and forward movement in my life. I had to move forward, even though it meant moving into the uncertain.

25. It is clear, therefore, that thoughts of abundance will respond only to similar thoughts; the wealth of the individual is seen to be what he inherently is. Affluence within is found to be the secret of attraction for affluence without. The ability to produce is found to be the real source of wealth of the individual. It is for this reason that he who has his heart in his work is certain to meet with unbounded success. He will give and continually give; and the more he gives, the more he will receive. ~ Haanel

Remember Kindness Week?

How could we forget!!

Again, here it is in the Franklin Makeover:

32. The incentive of attention is interest; the greater the interest, the greater the attention; the greater the attention, the greater the interest, action and reaction; begin by paying attention; before long you will have aroused interest; this interest will attract more attention, and this attention will produce more interest, and so on. This practice will enable you to cultivate the power of attention.

We all deserve silk, not sackcloth.

Always trust the voice within. 🙂
