We become what we repeatedly do.
Simple, yet profound.
It is very easy to fall into a routine, especially when most days resemble the next day, with very little reason to break the cycle in-between. We become accustomed to things as they are, and before we know it, the time has elapsed and our behaviour becomes normalised to the point of becoming habits, which are not always positive.
Remember, we become what we do, so choose wisely.
Be deliberate in your undertakings and hold yourself to account. It will not be easy, and you won't always hit the mark, but being consciously aware of your actions is a decent start.
Together, let’s choose a path or set of goals and repeatedly work at them until they are actualised. Focus on becoming by repeatedly doing! As always, we at Out and About Magazine will focus on the issues that keep you inspired, so let’s start doing it!
