Just Because it is Done ...

Sticking with the Cinderella theme today. One of my favorite lines in the movie was, "Just because it is done, doesn't mean it should be done."

This is a great point for all of us to ponder.

Where are we repeating a behavior or pattern that doesn't serve us?

In the movie she was talking about hunting animals, but I'd like to apply this concept to our everyday lives.

Here's a simple example: In marriage, many women find themselves nagging their husbands to get something done, perhaps taking out the trash, painting a room or making a household repair, but the task never gets done. What would it be like if the wife stopped addressing the topic altogether? What if she did that thing herself or hired someone else to do it? If repeated requests are not getting the job done, are more repeated requests really going to help?

Sometimes we need to stop and ask ourselves why we continue to do certain things that don't get us the results we seek. Try something different next time!
