Mini Habits Update

I still have some areas I need to work on.
As promised in my previous article on Mini Habits from the book, Mini Habits, I am reporting back to you regarding the book.

It's a pretty good read. I'm not that far into the book, but I'm reading it...slowly.

The author, Stephen Guise, makes an interesting point as he explains that, "good habits are as amazing as bad habits are dreadful" (ebook p 424). What that means to me is that it's all about perspective. If we look at developing a good habit with a positive attitude then that's probably what will happen and vice versa.

Nevertheless, I need all the help I can get in developing better habits in several areas of my life. As I continue on with reading the book I expect to learn new tools. I'm learning more than I thought about how the brain works (Guise goes quite a bit into detail about how the prefrontal cortex and the basal ganglia works regarding motivation and will power). Will I report back on that? Maybe.

In gist, I'm optimistic that things will get better for us all in self-development and for many of us that begins with developing better habits and sticking with them, not just doing them for 2 weeks.

No need to worry though, because all this is a little reminder about what the Lord said about the security of our future. He said, "for I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." 

How about making a habit of believing that if you haven't already done so?

  1. I love that scripture. It's on the front of one of my journals. You're right. Forming good habits is important because it keeps us on the right track to better health, better living, spiritual growth, educating ourselves, etc.

  2. Yes, it's a great scripture and one of the more common ones. I used it throughout many blog posts, because it's fitting for what God has for His people and others who chose to believe it. #faith

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.
