Welcome to Share Your Heart Tuesday
Have you ever taken an inventory of your habits? I know we all think of habits in terms of breaking them, right? When I was a teen I had a habit of biting my nails. I just recently broke my habit of drinking a Coca-Cola every day at lunch. We talk to our kids about breaking their habit of leaving dirty clothes on the floor.
But why do we always think in terms of breaking habits? Why do we spend considerably less time talking about creating good ones?
My friend, Virginia, has written quite a bit about establishing good habits. She says:
Many of the habits in our lives formed without much thought on our part. By definition, a habit is a routine we put little thought toward. We’re going to start creating intentional habits, and choosing how we want to structure our lives. Knowing the parts of a habit is a great way to identify what we need to do to create new ones.
I love the way she explains the importance of good habits in simplifying our lives in her story about Betty. If you struggle with bad habits, or need help establishing some good ones, why not hop on over to Virginia's place and let her teach you.
Have you beaten a bad habit lately? or established a new one that you're particularly proud of? Or made a breakthrough in helping your children establish good habits? I would love for you to leave a comment here or the Facebook Group and tell us about it so we can cheer you on!
