You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. ~ John C. Maxwell in The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth
We are nearing the end of the first month of 2013. I am excited about the progress I’m making in certain areas, though I’m still being challenged in others.
Beginning my daily devotional time with ten minutes of prayer has been a blessing. I feel like I’m able to focus more clearly on my Bible reading and other morning activities.
Challenged by Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts, I also began writing a daily list of blessings for which I’m thankful. What a perspective it gives me for starting the day!
However, there are other areas in which I need to heed the advice above. If I want to rid myself of these few pounds that keep hanging around, there are some changes I need to make and follow them daily. There are other long-term goals that I need to break down into daily activities if I want to see them accomplished.
I also want to teach our daughters to have good daily habits. Whether they have a long-term assignment to work on or want to save money for a large purchase, I can show them how to do a little at a time towards meeting that objective. I think they can see the importance of this demonstrated in their piano lessons. As they practice daily, they become more and more accomplished in their ability to play.
What would you like to change? Is there something you can do daily that will help you make that change? I know some of the tasks I want to accomplish may not come to fruition for a long time, but if I do something towards it each day, I can reach my goal.
