Mini Habits

Just start where you are until it becomes habit.
I stumbled upon a book called Mini Habits1 and I decided to order it. 

I haven't read it yet, but I may report back to you when I'm done. It's about doing the same thing everyday until it becomes easier, routine, a habit, even if it's only 5 minutes a day. In fact, the author says if we don't have the time to read his book we can take our time by reading 2 pages a day until we finish it (establishing a habit of reading and finishing something). 

After reading it I hope to become better at practicing and mastering certain things in my life. I think part of the unmotivation I have regarding certain areas is that certain things are just downright boring. Nevertheless, I know I need to do the boring stuff now, so I can do the fun stuff later. 

This blog helps me establish habits and it helps me with finishing things. People are becoming to expect it daily and I take that seriously. Imagine if Lebron James didn't practice even though people pay all that money to see him? He can't take that lightly. Even though I'm not on his level, I take this blog as seriously as he takes basketball.

Being unmotivated to develop good habits was my problem for a long time, because I put other things in front of my goals. Now I'm playing catch up and it's ok though. I know God will continue to give me the strength to carry on2. There's a lot I need to get accomplished. I feel as though I am not helping enough people. This blog is the start of many great things in order to help others and you're in on the ground floor. I appreciate everyone who comes to my blog. If I'm helping you, you're also helping me. Yet I still have a few more areas that I can develop better habits in (diet/fitness being one of them).

I leave you with these questions: What are you doing as a mini habit? What are some areas of your life where you can start? Are you doing enough in those areas that are lacking discipline? Why not start right now?

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
