TODAY’S BLOG

Your Constant Companion

~Author unknown

I am your constant companion.

I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.

I will push you onward to success or drag you down to failure.

I am completely at your command.

Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed—you must merely be firm with me.  Show me exactly how you want something done and, after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.

I am the servant of all great people and, alas, of all failures, as well.

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 all the precision of a machine, plus the intelligence of a person.  You may run me for profit or run me for ruin—it makes no difference to me.

Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet.  Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who am I?

I AM YOUR HABITS!!

********************************************

MY TAKE ON THIS PIECEI never thought about it this way before, but it may be useful to give our habits a face, an identity.  That might make it easier to decide to take them with us, or leave them behind.

What’s YOUR take on this piece?

    This is really great, Joyce.

    Once again we are on the same page. As the new year approaches, we all take time to evaluate our habits and change the some that are not good for us.
