Every habitual behavior you have emerged because it somehow served you — at some point in time.

But habits can outgrow their usefulness. And habits — when unchecked — can keep us from growing and developing new behaviors.

Are you doing something because you’ve always done it this way. Or are you choosing to do something?

It’s about self-observation. It’s about being present enough to know — am I choosing this or is this choosing me?
