old ways won't open new doors

Thursday, March 21, 2019

“Old ways won’t open new doors.” Interesting thought. Of course I “know” this to be true. But “knowing”, and “having the knowledge” are seemingly two different avenues! I have lots of knowledge stored up in my noggin. I “know” a thing or two as well. But putting the knowledge I have into active use is proving to be quite a feat!
I know that if I drink at least 64 oz of water a day I will be less hungry, my skin will be clear, my body will be hydrated, I’ll feel better. Do I put that knowledge to use daily? I want to say yes, but the truth is, most days…but sometimes not…and weekends are a hurdle all their own!
I also know that exercise is oh so very important. I know I need to do a mix of cardio and strength. Having this knowledge gets me nowhere! I have to put the knowledge into motion. I have to roll myself out of bed in the morning and hit the gym. I need to take that new spin class at the gym. Oddly, talking about it doesn’t get it done. I do “know” this!
So, my old habits, doing the same thing expecting different results…the ultimate definition of insanity. It’s time to take my knowledge, my “knowing”, and let it inspire me to try new things. Create new habits!

    I can definitely identify with this! I also have knowledge, and mine is paired with inertia many many days. Hard to remember to put into practice all the knowledge, LOL.

    Good luck to us both!

    These good words remind me of my past. Believe, I used to sell health products - was successful. All the while smoking and eating - nothing like I "knew" to do.

    Putting it in action is a whole new ballgame!
