“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

One of my FB friends posted this as their status today and it instantly became one of my favorite quotes.
Isn't it amazing how the smallest things we do or not do can become habits.
When I read this I immediately thought of about 5 things I need to stop doing,
but I also thought of a few things that I could start doing.
Small things that will not only make every day better but will impact my character and my legacy!

I can:
smile more
laugh more
stress less
slow down and just enjoy God's creation
do a better job of memorizing scripture
{as a kid I had tons of it memorized...I am slacking just a LITTLE in that department}
make someone else's day brighter by doing small things
sending snail mail to friends & family...just because
{who does not love getting mail that is not bills?!}
just consciously enjoying the madness that is my life everyday
{all in all it is pretty great!}

What small acts would you like to become habits in your life?

  1. I need to make more of an effort to just touch base with people on a daily basis. Making people feel important is one of the best things I think you can do.
