Beginner BabySteps: Day 26

BabyStep: Day 26 

You’re Not Behind!
It takes us a month to establish a habit. I set it up this way because I knew that I would miss a day here and there and I didn’t want to throw the baby out with the bath water. That was how I had always done it with my perfectionism. If I missed a day, I gave up; well I factored in this part of our personalities into our system with a grace period. This is why we take a whole month to establish one habit. Taking babysteps is how I started. I practiced one habit a month. Please be kind to yourself!

Today, I want you to know that you are not behind! Jump in where we are! This is at the bottom of all of our individual emails that go out!

FlyLady Tip: When we feel like we are behind; we get stressed out. This is how we have always lived. I want you to slow down. Getting in a hurry only makes you forget things! Take time to enjoy the process!

You are not behind! Jump in where we are!  ~FlyLady
