I read something the other day that said “Do something today, that your future self will thank you for”. I really liked that and it made me think, what could I do today, that my future self would thank me for, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. Last week, on Good Morning America, they had a segment about going 21 days without complaining. The anchors discussed whether or not they could do it and had viewers weigh in on the topic. Since watching that segment, I had been contemplating, on whether or not to try it.
As of today, I’ve made up my mind and I’m going to try it. Studies have shown that when you’re positive and have a good outlook on life, you’re healthier and live longer. Given my history with breast cancer, I want to continue to live a healthy life, full of vitality, and positivity. I know this isn’t going to be easy, because our (at least my natural tendencies), is to not look on the bright side of things sometimes. I do tend to worry and fret over things that end up, not being very important in the end.
They say it takes 21 days to develop a habit. Hopefully, after the 21 days, my natural tendencies will change. I know I’m going to have to really be mindful of my thoughts also. Because, first you think it….then you say it! Oh boy, a double whammy for me!
I’m really excited about this and my goal is to keep you posted each week on how it’s going. Pray for me, because I’m going to need it. 🙂
Anyone care to join me?
Love you to life!
