The charge in my devotional today is to do something. Make a small decision, an e-mail, a meal or a conversation. One little thing and see how it changes your life.
I mean that sounds pretty intense right? How many people make a million little decisions every single day and then don’t ever reflect back on how those decisions changed their life. It may not be noticeable right away, but after days, weeks or months of making that same small decision, you have made a change.
One of the examples in the devotion was making the decision to go to the gym. For me, I actually made the exact opposite decision a few months ago. I quit the gym. Instead of spending the membership amount every single month, feeling like I had to get out of bed at 4am to go, I made a change for myself. I had been a member for nearly 3 years, some weeks I went every single day and others I didn’t go at all.
I was stressing myself out about it though. Feeling like I had to go to stay in shape. Then I realized, why? Why am I doing this to myself if it isn’t fun anymore? So, I do yoga on my bedroom floor instead. I wait until after my husband has left for work and I do it in the comfort of my own home. I don’t set an earlier alarm, I spend that extra hour or so in bed. Then when I wake up, I have time to cuddle with my husband.
I am taking care of myself in a different way by making this choice. Allowing myself more rest and more minutes in the day to be with my husband. My priorities had shifted and I made time for something that was more important in my life.
Now, today what will I do. What will I do differently? That might be something little today, but could make a change in my life tomorrow or somewhere down the road? The answer to that is, I don’t know. However, now that it is in my mind, I know that I will do something.
Actually, I just thought of a little something that I can do. Let’s see how it works. Though, I bet I can come up with a few other things to do throughout the day as well.
Happy Hump Day to You ❤ ❤
