I read if you do something for 21 straight days it becomes a habit. Well, I think they may be on to something. I determined to make my bed every day for 21 days. I have now reached 33 consecutive days. That is some kind of record for me! My husband doesn't quite know what to make of it.
Before my commitment, I could walk through the bedroom and not even think of making the bed. As I've told you, my philosophy was why bother since you're going to be sleeping in it in a few hours. I made the bed only when company was coming. Now, after Wayne gets up, I instinctively start making the bed.
I wonder what would happen if I committed to exercised for 21 consecutive days? What if I fixed breakfast at home for 21 consecutive days? I would probably be a few pounds lighter and have a few more dollars in my purse!
Some habits are more important for us to develop than others.
What if we read our Bible for 21 consecutive days?
What if we said only kind words for 21 consecutive days.
What if we spent time praying for 21 consecutive days?
What if we did at least one kind deed for 21 consecutive days?
Developing those kinds of habits would enrich our lives and others.
Hoping to develop the really important habits, Gloria
