I’m back reading The Power of Habit. I’m learning the power of small wins. So I’m giving myself a small bouquet and a second cup of tea for a reward. I have done well this morning. Sheba is brushed and fluffed, the floor is cleared of her hair with a damp mop. It is time to savour my small victories in the warmth and sunshine of my sun room. Oops! There goes the sun.
No matter! I am buoyed by the information in the book. I CAN change my habits for the better. I CAN make life better and some parts of it easier. Empowerment comes with enlightenment. We don’t have to go down the same old roads if they don’t take us to where we want to go. We CAN change directions.
My big win today is getting Sheba brushed and the floor cleared. My small win…taking last year’s calendar off the window and into the recycling. And it’s only January. Sometimes it hangs outdated for most of the year. They say little changes/wins spills into big ones. I don’t need to start a revolution or a movement. Somehow they tend to burn themselves out. No banners, drums or marching for me, but I will IDLE NO MORE.
I will do the hard work of changing one thing at a time. I will exercise my will power , muscle one day at a time. I WILL evolve into a conscious human being. Amen.
