Every habit I have was formed with one simple choice.Â Each day, I must choose to do what is right until that choice becomes a lifestyle.Â I read that concept this morning in â€œThe Frazzled Femaleâ€ by Cindi Wood.Â It struck me more than anything else I have dealt with this week.
It is just one choice.
All the things that I do in my day and in my life come down to one choice.Â If I make the right choice often enough then it become a habit.Â If I make the wrong choice (and it takes much less time for this) it will become a hindrance.
Iâ€™m reminded of a forty challenge that I once took.Â For forty days, there were tasks that I set out to do â€“ like give something away, say something nice to someone, do something nice for someone, read the bible, etc.Â At the end of the forty days, I was not as focused on myself as I was when the challenge began.Â There were also several new habits in my life.Â Instead of just walking through the day, I was looking for ways to serve God.Â That was a major change, and it happened one day at a time.
What are you willing to do today that will make you a better person and a better reflection of God?
Speak kind words
Take a walk instead of watching TV
Play a game with the kids
Send a note to friend
Visit a neighbor
Let someone else go in front of you
Just for today, choose to make your life better.Â Tomorrow will take care of itself.
