{January 22, 2012}   THE 21 DAY CHALLENGE TO FIX BAD HABITS AND CREATE GOOD ONES

What’s going on readers? I know I’ve been a way for awhile probably should have posted on the first but that’s so cliche. But Happy New Year Everyone! It is now 2012 and regardless of what 2011 brought you, remember this is you’re fresh start, a brand new beginning, a brand new chapter. God has brought you this far so if you are still battling with past demons or other emotional problems, this is your year to change that. God will give you the strength to make changes but you have to grab his hand first. I know some of you are probably saying “easier said then done,” and you’re probably right but nothing in life was meant to be easy. She’s a female dog with a shot gun but that’s where you take God’s hand and make a plan. Baby steps, crawling, standing, walking, running, THEN you can run. But let’s talk about the planning part.

This subject means a lot to me readers because I’ve been where some of you are right now or were. I’ve been trapped in complete darkness, broken, and ready to give up on everything, and every day I thank God for the second chance but second chances aren’t meant to be wasted either. Its never too late to start over so let’s talk about how to start over.

There’s an old saying that it takes 21 days to break a bad habit. Some say 7 days but let’s be real with ourselves, the 21 sounds about right. Going 21 days without doing something is extremely hard especially when your subconscious kicks in and starts reminding you of how much you love that bad habit, or “its just one time, no harm done.” That’s how we fall of the wagon. Now 21 days doesn’t just have to be applied to bad habits but good ones as well.

A few months ago, I tried this. I knew it would be difficult, I knew it would be hard, I knew I would fall of the wagon and have to start over. That’s the key though, getting back on the horse and trying again no matter how many times he throws you off. I have to admit, looking back I started off pretty bold with emotional bad habits which takes lots of discipline and lots of patience. I fell off…several times so I had to change my strategy by starting of more simply. So I chose things like 21 days of just drinking water (cleansing) and 21 days of no soda. And let me tell you, my mind was definitely peer pressuring me with things like “how about 1 soda a week”….and I had to tell myself NO! And 21 days later, I barely reach for a soda and I drink a lot more water. Next I moved on to emotional problems which I have truly gotten control over like insecurity and forgiving more.

So here’s my challenge to all of you and myself included, let’s use 2012 to fix our vices and start new habits. 21 day Challenge of your choosing! Email me at biancalee788@gmail.com with your 21 day challenge each month and each week I will include not only my progress but my readers as well! Let’s start a trend by fixing ourselves in order to change the world. Don’t forget ARK either in your 21 day challenges 🙂
