About Just 30 Days

IMG_5166Hi, my name is Megan. I’m a wife and stay at home mom of three preschoolers so life is crazy every day. I love my checklists (sometimes I add things on it that I’ve already done just so I can check it off!), my free time is spent on Pinterest and I catch myself thinking that the grass is greener on the other side…a lot! And by that I mean there are days I wish I could cook like her, get up early every day like him, workout like them or encourage my husband like that. The reality is that I know God didn’t create me to do it all but I believe he has placed things on my heart for a reason and I don’t want to ignore it. But where do I begin? That’s what this blog is all about.

I believe we often wait for the perfect conditions to try something new. I know I’m guilty. How many times have I told myself, “I will start working out in the fall when it’s not so hot and humid outside.”? But then when fall comes I say, “I’m so busy with school starting. I will try in a few months.” Now it’s the holidays and we all know that won’t happen! And the cycle continues. The reality is that we are not called to build a perfect life and then live it. But instead to live life and build it as we go. Take one day at a time. Or in my case, 30 days at a time.

We’ve all heard the saying that it takes just 30 days to create a habit. I wonder if that’s really true. I’ve decided to try and find out by taking 30 days to try one thing. Whether my goal is to wake up early, eat clean food, stop complaining, meet my neighbors, workout, encourage my husband, live on a budget…I’m going to try one thing at a time for 30 days straight. After 30 days, I will see if I want to keep doing it or maybe I will realize it doesn’t make my grass green at all. But either way, I believe there’s power in a focused life!

So this is my journey of watering my side of the grass…30 days at a time! Would you like to join me for JUST 30 DAYS?

“Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. … Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both. Light is sweet; how pleasant to see a new day dawning.” — Ecclesiastes 11:4,6-7 (NLT)
