I came across this quote about a month ago, and it's something I remind myself of very frequently.
At first it seemed kind of obvious, I mean duh, but it suddenly kept popping up in my thoughts.
Whether it be the way you are treated by a friend, a spouse, family members, or how you view your health, what you allow will continue.
Do you want to have a great body but can't get off the couch?
If you're allowing yourself to not get up and go, you are allowing laziness to continue.
Are you not getting what you need out of a relatinship?
Unless you speak up, that behavior will continue.
Feel used by a friend?
If you brush it off and ignore it, it will continue.
It's easy to blame outside influences for the choices we make, but ultimately if you are not happy with something, it's up to you to change it...or life will continue just the way it is.
