Each Day a New Beginning

The change of one simple behavior can affect other behaviors and thus change many things.  —Jean Baer—
Our behavior tells others and ourselves, who we are. Frequently, we find ourselves behaving in ways that keep us stuck or embarrass us. Or we may feel deep shame for our behavior in a certain instance. Our behavior will never totally please us. But deciding we want to change some behavior and using the program to help us, is a first step.
Remember, imperfections are human and very acceptable. However, changing a particular behavior, maybe deciding to take a walk every morning rather than sleeping 30 extra minutes, will change how we feel about ourselves. And a minor change such as this can have a remarkable effect on our outlook, our attitudes.
The dilemma for many of us for so long was the fear we couldn’t change. But we can. And we can help each other change, too….
One small change today–a smile at the first person I meet–meditation before dinner–a few minutes of exercise–will help me chart a new course. I will encourage another woman to join me in this effort too, and I will be on my way.
