What do you want to CREATE in 2010?

First of all, Happy New Year to everybody! I hope you ended 2009 in a wonderful way, and are looking forward to a happy and healthy 2010. As we started the new year, an interesting perspective came to my attention: As I wrote out checks for our son’s gymnastics lessons and various other vendors, I wrote January 2, 2009. Though I had a great celebration of the new year, I didn’t even NOTICE the mistake I had made on my handwritten checks. In fact, it wasn’t until people asked me to correct the date that I noticed my silly error.

This little goof got me thinking of how often we are creatures of habit. We sit in a particular way, cross our arms in a habitual way, and maybe even grocery shop and buy the same foods on a weekly basis. When I wrote my checks out with last years date, I realized how easy it is for people to do things in a habitual way without even thinking about it cognitively. Although I mentally knew it was the beginning of a new year, my habit from last year was to write the month, the day and the year 2009… so I of course I did it again.

So think about this? Are there places in your life where you would like to create better habits?...

  1. The power of habits is amazing. People that are happy and abundant are people who have habituated ways of being. I believe in that so much. Thanks for the inspiration Jen!~
