Old habits are hard to break, and new ones are even harder to integrate. So what better time than fresh into a new year and at the beginning a new spring season, to make a few small changes that could result in big rewards later on?
Inspired by something I read in a magazine, I’ve decided to write one note per day, on the subject of my choice and to whom ever I wish. It could be a simple love note to my children or my husband, a quick “hello” note to a friend I haven’t talked to in awhile, or an inspirational note to myself to keep me motivated. Personalized notepads are perfect for my new endeavor. It’s hard to resist beautiful paper stock that is personally monogrammed with my name on it. I keep the notepad on the island of my kitchen, not only for easy access but also as a visual reminder. I can quickly tear off a sheet and write away, then pass it on to my intended or slip it into an envelope to read for my own personal enjoyment at a later date.
Regardless of how trivial I think each message is, the point is to keep writing! Every day, without hesitation. Proactive habits are born from proper mindset, diligence, a lot of patience and, at times, some forgiveness. So break out your own customized notepad and get started. What are you waiting for?
