A wise woman very dear to my heart once told me. “It takes 21 days to correct a bad habit”. I always had that in mind, however, I never put it to practice, well okay, I did try but always failed after week one. Recently, on the 25th of last month I woke up thinking “I’m going to clean my house”. Clean it I did. I actually super cleaned it. It still remains as clean as it looked that day. So I am starting to believe her wise words. Now, I can’t go to bed without making sure my dishes are done and everything is picked up.
Which came in handy recently. I had to have maintenance over to attend to an emergency. I was glad all was it’s it’s proper place, and it made handling the emergency that much easier.
I am just on day 8. I will keep you posted on the progress if I make any. Until then I love how everything looks. You might say I have reasons to smile and all that. For some reason the 25th of last month was special, I spend all day cleaning lost in my thoughts, and made progress.
It’s strange, but I am also beginning to believe my mother’s wise words. She always said to me when I was having a bad day. “Smile, it is far easier to deal with life, it is far easier than punching a bag, and it makes you look better”. A week ago I smiled, and things seem to be becoming brighter.
So smile, life has a way to reward a cheerful face!
