I was sitting in a meeting yesterday trying to keep my eyes open. This sometimes happens after a long work day that was met with not quite enough sleep the night before. I also find sometimes this is a good state for my mind because I'm in that in between state of sleep & awake, where suddenly, I'm not the judge and I really let things in my head.
The speaker mentioned that if he just does one thing a day, one prayer, one meditation, one choice different than what he's always done, one shift of a thought it doesn't seem all that huge. BUT if he does that one thing everyday for day after day after day - things change.
I rolled that around in my head.
I'm signing a lease today! Moving in with my boyfriend! This is truly amazing to me. During this process I was consumed with fear that the wreckage of my financial past would surely come into play and that we wouldn't get the apartment we want and it would be all my fault (self-centered much?)
Two and a half years ago, I enrolled in a debt management program where weekly I get a deduction from my bank account that they then take care of paying all my outstanding credit card bills etc.
Without knowing it, and without out being conscious of it, slowly over the last two and half years, my credit has improved to the point that it's actually considered GOOD. AND was an important part of us getting this lease.
It's the little things we do each and every day to feed our souls, better our lives and CHANGE that make the difference.
What are the little things you do? Do you give yourself credit?
