1) Observing in judgement, is the most difficult habit to break. We judge everything! Foods, clothes, mannerisms of those we see, generic categories we may make for those we meet. So often these judgements are negative of a sort. Learning to see our self without judgement is quite a challenge as well.
2) Quitting smoking is probably a second on the list. Whatever that tobacco is soaked in before drying and rolling is quite addictive.
3) Shifting from a “blame” attitude to one of, “what is here for me to learn” attitude is a consistent challenge. It always takes at least two to create a situation … there are always at least two responsible (meaning ‘self’ and ‘other’).
4) Midnight snacking is right up there with the others. Who has will power at 2am when they stumble into the kitchen and sees delicious snacks on the countertop? “Not I”, said I.
5) Remembering to “listen” before rushing to answer, chime in, or argue. If something triggers the emotional body it is easy to slip up and interject without allowing the speaker to finish. This appears rude, when most likely it is an excitement of some sort … the lips have a tough time ‘zipping it’ around certain topics.
6) Perhaps the temptation to be a couch potato is one for the list. Personally, if I come home and relax, that’s it … but if I come home and get the chores done quickly, then I don’t feel so bad about relaxing … but sometimes (most times), I just don’t care.
