Jan 21. Form Good Habits

Oh man, so apparently most people abandon their New Year's Resolutions by February.  A lot of us don't even make it that far.  We have good intentions, and we see the new year as being full of change and possibility.  For a moment we believe we can do things differently, really change.  For years I would make the same resolutions over and over again, which proves I never saw any of them through.  This year I decided to do things differently.  So instead of making hard and fast rules, that I would break just as hard and fast, and would then give up entirely, I decided to try to make little changes all throughout the year.  Some of them would be big ones (hello, getting published, traveling to Australia and New Zealand, etc.) but others would be simple things, like drinking more water, going for a walk, or performing an act of service.
They are only meant to be done one a day, and so they are easily done.  But there are a few things I have done every day since Jan. 1- read scriptures, prayed, wrote, and done by blog.  They say if you can do something for 21 days it becomes a habit.  So think of something that you should be doing, could be doing, and tackle it one day at a time. 

"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." Benjamin Franklin

p.s. Happy Birthday to my beautiful Grandma- 83!
