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

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.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
