If you want to get out of a hole, stop digging.
If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
I heard this today on NPR news as I was driving my daughter to school and realized how we do find ourselves in a holes, but simply keep digging. A hole can mean so many things. How about if you over eat, and find yourself unhealthy, stop over eating? How about, if you are an alcoholic and find yourself drinking, stop drinking or being about those that are a bad influence? The list goes on. Every possible situation can be a hole if done in excess or any unhealthy situation can become a hole. Sometimes we shouldn’t believe the “don’t knock it until you try it” quote because those one time tries can open a very unhealthy door. Something you may find yourself, later, having a hard time digging yourself out of.
Have a wonderful day!
