Happy Monday Good People!
I must admit. I have a bad habit.
When situations become inconvenient, uncomfortable or challenging, I say six words…”this is getting on my nerves!” “This” can be he, she, they or it. And the Honey dutifully pointed this habit out to me since he usually hears, or should I say bears the brunt of my complaints. Now I recognize that this bad habit allows me to vent or complain about some thing I just don’t like. Some people might think this is small. However, as we talked, he made me realize that the more I air or speak these complaints and grievances, I am only adding more fuel to the fire. I was adding energy to something negative rather than positive. In order to begin to change the situation, I had to begin to speak and act differently. We all know this is so much easier said because it is a habit. It is second nature for me to just blurt out that “You are getting on my nerves!”
So, when I heard Oprah say be responsible for the energy you bring and surround around yourself, it made me become more aware of my thoughts, speech and behavior. Then the priest said, “To love is a choice. To love is to will the good of another, to desire for another to succeed” This made me think about how I could choose to show more love by helping others succeed. Then, I found this song on a fellow blogger’s site, and I said, “I got it! I got the message!” 🙂
Enjoy this song by Colbie Caillat called “Think Good Thoughts.”
So what bad habits are you going to change? 😉
Have a great week everyone, ThatKellieGirl
