What happens when one day you “wake up” and feel like your identity shifted?
In some situations it may not be a bad thing.
Purposeful practice of habits that will help you integrate positive behaviors in to your life can lead you to a positive place.
A place that you are aware of.
There are other times when life can be taken over by one thing and everything else slips away because of it.
This happens without much awareness.
Any awareness you may have, you try and ignore.
It can leave you feeling guilty and full of regret.
Most people would rather ignore or bury those feelings, rather than experience them.
The day when you wake up is that “aha!” moment. Or it’s rock bottom, etc.
It’s the day when you look around and see that the shift in your identity was something you completely missed.
You are no longer the person you were a little while ago and it is time to get to know the person you are now.
Staring a new job is a big life shift that can impact how you see yourself.
It happens gradually and then after six months or so, you notice new things about yourself.
The same thing happens when you start a new training program, or activity.
There is usually a culture that goes along with a gym, or a group of people who train together.
Over time you adapt and it becomes part of how you express yourself.
If you ever find yourself in a place where your are not happy with how life is, consider what has brought you to where you are.
Then think about what needs to change.
What you like about how you stay active and train in your current life?
