Cultivate Good Habits!

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Habits are part of a giant circle. First, we make our habits, then our habits make us. Good habits are as hard to break as bad ones so cultivate good habits. It takes twenty-one days to make or break a habit. Pick one facet of your life and work on it for the next three weeks, then move on to another one. Don't try to do too much at once. Maybe in the second or third week, you can introduce a new habit to work on but don't do so at the expense of habit number one.

    I don't have ANY bad habits. emoticon
I am a avid coffee drinker...and yes I think my worst habit is stressing out at things I can not change. Maybe it is the coffee. No...I have had this problem before I started drinking coffee.
Would I want to break a good habit? I don't think I have any of those either...lol
Great blog...Makes you think

Rainy Days and Mondays

Monday, May 03, 2010

The Carpenters sand "Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down". They always get me up. Perhaps one of the most enjoyable weather phenomena is the clearing off after a rain storm when the world is fresh and the sky brightens.

Too many people hate Monday and spend their life waiting for the opportunity to say TGIF. If there were no Mondays, there would be no Fridays to be thankful for. Embrace each day and live it to the fullest.

You Can't Please Everybody, So You've Got to Please Yourself

Sunday, May 02, 2010

Bill Cosby said he didn't know the formula for success but the formula for failure is to try to please everybody.

    I agree but the society that we live in is all about me and the Lord tells us it is all about Him. I prefer to live for him and like it that way. Have a great day and good luck on your journey.
