While thinking over lots of pieces of my life that work and don’t work today I came to the realization that my life is a pile of habits. My parenting, my living, my marriage, my exercise, my cooking… etc. I thought about the ones that I like and the ones I need to change and establish healthier habits. So what do I need to work on you might ask?
–Cooking. I need to create better and more healthier meals, therefore, shop better… I need to get back to my brain of healthy. I need the energy that healthy food gives me… I need the boost of drinking tons of water and eating lots of fruit. I need to change.
–Marriage. When life suffers and sad sets in we start distancing ourselves in our marriage. When we separate it becomes easier to do so more often… I am going to push myself, in a good positive way, in my marriage. I am going to talk simple and take time more often. I am going to pay better attention to Matt. I am going to make sure I kiss him everytime I leave or he leaves. I am going to make him hold my hand more. I am going to pull back our healthy habits and make them habits again.
–Parenting. I am going to be here more. I am going to go for more walks and make my habits with my girls more meaningful. I am going to try not to be so tired and be outside more… (thank God spring is here).
Basically, I am going to work for the 21 days over and over to create these new habits and make them my normal. I want to improve my living and relationships… and I think new habits will help. So let’s see if this works… if my theory and creating better habits improves my life.
