How much of what we do is based on routines? Think about how most of us are unaware that doubt and worry control our life. We can oblivious to the fact that we have choices. But as your awareness increases, you become conscious that you are choosing where you are going.
The definition of awareness is, ‘The degree of clarity to which we perceive both consciously and unconsciously all the things that affect our lives.’ Making choices is the key after becoming aware. Being aware of our choices. You are either happy or sad because you choose to be.
Most of us are content to stay in our comfort zones . . . we get stuck there. Part of the reason for this has to do with fear. It’s scary to get out of your comfort zone, to change the situation-even though they don’t like it, it’s familiar. When you become aware of being stuck in your comfort zone, try to pioneer out of it to experience something new.
The danger of not doing so, is that we might on some level, start to self-destruct. That’s when the self sabotage can happen is a way that you might not expect. In our unhappiness we may subconsciously begin looking for a way out. In my mothers case I believe that she subconsciously created her own sickness . . . and cancer was the way out. Dr. Bernie Siegel has documented many cases like this, when cancer is the way that they become aware of their choices and begin making choices to live the life that they want. It is almost like they need the wake up call to give themselves permission to live life to the fullest.
