I am so ready to put out the gourds, pumpkins, and mums. In fact, I may go get some of the things that I want to put outside tomorrow and start on the inside fall decorations. This is what I consider "The most wonderful time of the year". I was born in October so it stands to reason that I would love it. :)
Taking walks with a crispness in the air and seeing the leaves change colors are things that give me a sense or renewal. I am not certain why. I get an overwhelming sense to organize and clean this time of year. I have spent the week cleaning...deep cleaning. I have found things I forgot about, thrown away things that I no longer need, and gathered things to give away that I no longer have a use for. It made me think about my habits. Do I need to have this same overwhelming sense to clean when it comes to mindless habits? I feel a need to list 5 habits that I no longer need and set out to work on cleaning them out of my life between now and the first of the year. Here are five habits that I plan to break:
I need to break the habit of answering my children before they are finished asking the question
I need to break the habit of staying up too late in the evenings
I need to break the habit of complaining more than I compliment
I need to break the habit of texting while I am suppose to be having a conversation with somebody
I need to break the habit of not always putting others first
I want to have good habits in my life and not habits that hinder others or me. Fall may be a little more than a week away, but I am starting today.
