I felt pulled back to the practice in April 2021 and committed to practicing daily. I was pretty consistent, but would tend to skip a few days at a time (usually on weekends). So, in April of this year I promised myself that I would complete a full 100-day cycle. I will be honest in saying that, deep down, I didn't believe I would follow through fully.
It has been amazing to watch those self-sabotage tendencies stealthily creep up. "I'm kind of sore today - maybe I'll just skip it this one time", or "who will know? You really don't have to do this", or "I deserve a break", and on and on.
Your mind likes status quo and predictability. It's not trying to deliberately sabotage you. Ultimately, it's trying to keep you safe by keeping you the same. The part of your mind that's doing this can't see the potential positive benefits.
It's when your level of self-awareness grows and you can acknowledge what's going on beneath the surface, while still intentionally choosing to stretch your comfort zone, that real change and growth is possible.
