Featured Blog of the day and thoughts on HABITS

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me,
For I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.
I am easily managed; just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a
machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a habit.

Wow!! Part of the mission of Bloom Where Your Are Planted is to help us see where we are and where we need to grow so that we can BLOOM and touch others around us. I love this reminder of how damaging poor habits can be and how rewarding good habits can be. I am making a list listing my bad habits on the left and my good ones on the right. I pray the good ones out number the bad ones. I will let you know on Wednesday. I encourage you to do the same. We can not change a bad habit until we recognize it as one.
