Ever since I had the baby I cannot seem to find anything I can tolerate watching other than Modern Family or Fixer Upper.
I can’t stand anything with violence, anything disturbing, anything scary, or anything depressing. So that cuts out almost everything on TV.
I promised Mike I wouldn’t watch the new episodes of Modern Family or Fixer Upper without him while he’s away this weekend, though.
Feeling the need to decompress after a day with an unusually fussy baby (she’s going through a phase), I stumbled upon a treasure trove of DVR’d Super Soul Sunday episodes. Jackpot!
Uplifting – check!
Useful – check!
Positive – check!
So, I was sitting listening to Oprah interview Gretchen Rubin, whom I adore. They were talking about Gretchen’s newest book, Better Than Before.
This quote struck me:
Our lives are, in fact, made up of the tiny little things we do every single day. Those little actions, even if seemingly insignificant, create our reality.
And if we want to change our reality, we have to change those little things we do every day.
As I sat and listened to Gretchen talk to Oprah about the year she spent taking small actions every day for a year in an incredibly systematic way in order to create more happiness in her life, I though about how you could apply that very same format to anything you wanted more of in your life.
And no matter how “successfully” you followed your plan, you would inevitably see improvements in whichever area of your life you chose to focus on. Because what we put our attention on grows.
While I’m not ready to take on an entire year project like Gretchen, I am ready to take on 21 days.
You may have heard that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Turns out this is misquoted a lot, and what studies actually show is that it takes a minimum of 21 days to form a new habit.
So why not keep it simple and do the minimum required to potentially form a new habit?
Can’t hurt. Would likely help.
That’s where the #MoneyLoveChallenge comes in.
Join me for 21 days, the minimum amount of time it takes to form a new habit, and see what happens.
We’re going to spend 21 days doing something small that doesn’t take much time in order to put loving, positive attention on our money.
