You didn't thnk this was going to be every day for 10 days, did you? Ain't nobody got time for that!
I have a lot of bad habits. I let laundry pile up, I bite my nails, I procrastinate, I worry over dumb stuff that will never change. Probably my worst habit is my negative outlook or more specifically, negative self talk. I am my own worst critic. I feel like it is good to have some humility and to be self-deprecating. But it can veer off into self-hate. I'm trying to get better. Here's one small way:
Just a little daily encouragement in the morning and at bedtime. I have been trying to meditate but it gets hard to find a quiet place and a quiet time. This upcoming semester I will have more solo time when I am on campus. Maybe that will give me an opportunity to work on it.
I make sure that every day I read with my son.
he was restless and cranky on account of new molars. I was tired, he was tired, and it was 4:30 so it was too late for a nap and too early for dinner. So I decided to try it. He sat in my lap and said "oooh" and "wow" on every page. He wanted to read it again and again and feel the pages. I know it is a good habit to start early on reading, and it is definitely something he likes doing, but it is also so sweet and cute that it makes me very happy.
