Ok, so we actually only have 20 days, but you get the point. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. With these last 20 days we have left in 2018 (that seems impossible) your assignment for today is to list the habits, both good and bad that you’re going to take the next 20 days getting rid of and developing.
For me, I am going to get back into the habit of reading my Bible more (don’t judge) and making my prayer life stronger (again, don’t judge) 🤦🏾♀️ God and I have an understanding and a relationship only we understand 😂 but He loves me so much that He just keeps working with and loving on me.
I must admit that at some point this year, I just decided that I was going to get my life together. I mean you all seriously have no idea how raggedy my life was. Financially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I can’t say when I had my “AHA” moment, but the day I had it, my life changed and I began to take and make the necessary steps to get on track. Now, you talk about 21 days to develop a new habit? OMG! It was a major shock for me. Financially I had to give up all of my credit cards, debit card, and reward cards, turn over every piece of income I had coming in, and basically had to learn how to budget with whatever I earned from my part time job (which was basically pennies) It was the hardest thing I ever had to do, but turning 40 really made me think about my life and where it was versus where I wanted it to be. And so since September, I have cried, I have begged, I have pouted and had major attitudes, but the other day I was allowed to look in my account, and let’s just say I smiled because the sacrifice has definitely paid off.
I also had to change the way I spoke over and into my life. And so I wrote down about 15 affirmations that I began to say every single day. I let go of all of the negative stuff I was holding. The hurt and pain I had suffered, as well as the choices and decisions that had gotten me to where I was. Take it from me, it’s just not worth losing and giving people power by allowing them to occupy space that could be used to build yourself up and grow into the person God has created you to be. I LET IT ALL GO! and began to speak what God and His word said about me over my life. I’m telling you it makes a difference. So now you have another assignment. Write out at least 5 affirmations that you will speak over yourself the next 20 days. One of mine for instance is Im walking in the steps ordered for me, and those steps will lead me to my destiny.
I don’t know why Im all the way left today on this topic today, but I really want you all to understand the power of creating positive habits that will totally change your life. It’s a game changer, and I’m only speaking from what I know for myself! I have so much to share with you all going into 2019! and I am so excited about it I’m about to burst! So you have your assignments for today, right? And we aren’t going to waste another day developing our good habits and getting rid of the old ones, right? Ok, I’m trusting that that’s what you’re going to do. Feel free to email me and share your new habits. I’m so excited to hear about them. My declaration over my life for 2019 is Open Doors and God is already opening some amazing ones for me 🙌🏾
Here’s to your New Beginning🎉
