Building positive habits...
When we came to pay at the supermarket this morning, we found the bank card of the previous customer still in the card reader - cue me sprinting (er, walking quickly) into action to find the lady before she left the car park (which I did)…. and once back with my family, my wife commented that there was my day’s good deed for my journal.
And there’s the interesting thing - I haven’t been recording my daily good deeds for over a year (I have other daily journaling prompts), but the habit I built of trying to perform a daily act of kindness has stayed with me.
So if there is a habit that you would like to build, maybe journaling about it daily can help you to build it - and even if you don’t manage perfection, you will still be brightening up a few days along the way….
