Recently I referenced a great book I’d read, and shared a thought or two from the pages I ate up while earnestly stepping my way to happiness at the gym. I’ve finally taken to reading books & listening to music to drown out the gym noise, and boy is it awesome! Honestly, not sure why I was needlessly suffering all these years!
During my sweat session on the stair master last night, I got to thinking. Thinking about habits, thinking about my day. Thinking about the good parts of my day and then the not so good parts. We are what we do and what we think, and so our own actions couldn’t be of more paramount importance to shaping how we feel about ourselves, and about life.
This quote from The Happiness Project really stuck with me and re-surfaced last night:“What we do everyday is more important than what we do once in a while.”
Since we are what we do and what we say, those things we continually repeat are the things we become. We all know fitness won’t come to us from moving once or twice a week, just like your teeth won’t be clean if you only brush them when you feel like it (unless you are me I am an obsessive brusher). What we say is important too. Love is better expressed when said everyday than once in a while, right?
Whatever those changes are you want to make, the key to the good life seems to lie in doing good for yourself and others everyday. After all, how can we deal with all the tough stuff without doing all we can to bring the things we want our way?
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend full of awesomeness, whatever you choose to do. Next up I’ve got some super yummy sweet treats to share, because, it’s just been too long since I posted a dessert. But don’t worry, I won’t be doing that everyday, because I’ve also got a deliciously simple salad roll recipe coming too. Happy Friday!
Yours in Less,
