HEALTHY HABITS

HEALTHY HABITS

"Yo girl! Wake up! You dreamin'!"  

I want to do a lot of things...I dream about doing a lot of things.  And that's where I need to make a change.  If I want my dreams to actually unfold and to see the fruit of those dreams, I better switch my dreaming into actually doing!  In order for that to happen, I need to change my habits.  

This is an obvious, i know, but much easier said than done.  I've realized I can't overwhelm myself with a handful of instant changes I want to make in my daily life.  I have to start small so I don't feel defeated because I didn't do everything I wanted to do the way I wanted to do it.  It's like the feeling of failure when you don't stick to all those ambitious new years resolutions.  This year I made ONE resolution and didn't even make it past February.  Bummer.  Guess another thing I have to work on is DISCIPLINE.

I like to make sticky notes and post them up in my bathroom with thoughts, quotes, or verses that I need to tell myself daily in order to change my thoughts.   I love reading different books about art and Jesus.  I'll get through a few chapters and get super inspired and motivated and then....nothing.  NOTHING.  I'll get on these little productive highs or have a splash of creativity here and there and then, nothing.  WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?   Ugh, so frustrating!  I mean, C'MON!  Why can't I just stay in that moment of creative happiness and fulfillment?  Why does that seem so difficult?

After being at lifegroup tonight, I discovered there is no right way to get there and that I've already started. The challenge is to stay CONSISTENT. 

In my classroom, I have a quote written on the wall that says "Dreams don't work unless you do."  Guess I need to show those kiddos what that looks like.  

"Yo Jesus! Watch this! We doin' it!"
