building habits.

in may i decided it was probably time to start making my bed more often. so i committed to one month of making it every day, no matter what. and {to my surprise} i did! even better, i still am! every morning, regardless of how late i might be running, my first action - okay, second, turning off the alarm being first - is to pull up the covers and toss on the pillows. two months into this new habit, i think it is time for another. this time i'm going for a physical/exercise based habit...but keeping it very reasonable, or else i might start looking for excuses to skip it.

july's new habit is a 30 second plank and 15 push-ups, third thing in the morning {after i turn off the alarm and make the bed}. stating the habit here is definitely my way of making sure i stick to it! and if you're interested in trying something similar...

haikus on video chat

small smiles spread as
pixels settle on your face
distant proximity

glasses, tousled hair
face etched with effort of today
joy creeps in

little laughs escape
to dance invisible wires
remotely together

quote: buddhist saying.

in the end, only three things matter:
how much you loved, how gently you lived,
and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

human life is about a culmination of moments and
99 percent of those are quiet
but powerful.
