Following through with a desired change in behavior can be a challenge.  Sometimes, its as simple as forgetting what you said you would do.  For example, I recently decided to drastically reduce my intake of processed sugar.  Because, I feel SOOOO good when I don’t eat it.

But, here’s the rub:  I’m not always conscious of the fact that the thing I’m about to enjoy contains processed sugar.  It’s not that I don’t know, it’s that in the moment, I’m not thinking.  It takes a wake-up call from my partner to help me reconnect with reality.  A gentle reminder, and I have a fresh opportunity to make a conscious choice.  What a sweet lesson.

Whenever you’re changing your behavior, engage the support of an ally – someone who will help you stay awake and be true to your commitment by respectfully posing a question or making a statement that causes you to pause, think and make a mindful, deliberate decision…hopefully, in favor of your intended goal.
