Keep pushing forward

Breaking habits is never easy when it becomes a crutch or idol. Think about it if it makes you act like a different person with or without the habit, then it could be a problem. I won’t stop fighting, to be, habit free. Anything that takes your focus can be a habit. It’s not hard to form a habit whether it be sugar, or even something, that is a ritual. I truly believe some have made working out a idol if working out is more of a focus to them than making their influence positive.

We must fight the urge to lash back, prepare to be positive all day and know, it is the most important thing, to do. Negative Emotions can be the biggest, obstacle to an answered prayer. I just wrote this to encourage others, and maybe by doing that it will help me, in my struggles to stay positive. When everything around me seems gloomy I know that being negative, only brings bad things. Be positive and do your best and I will too.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
