“It’s going to be a great day.” The Maui Habit

I’ve been saying this to myself everyday, as in EVERYDAY, for a couple of weeks now. I say it the minute my feet hit the floor in the morning. And I try to feel optimistic and positive even though I am barely awake!

I learned this Tiny Habit from the brilliant behavior scientist B.J. Fogg and as strange as this sounds, everyday that I have said this I have had a Great Day!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m not totally sure why I am having a great day just by saying the words, but I am reading his book Tiny Habits and his science is fascinating and feels like magic to me!

I just wanted to share with all of you and encourage you to check him and his website out and maybe even grab the book. If you are having trouble making habits stick, then I really think this might help.

But if that’s not for you, then just try the simple tiny habit of saying “It’s going to be a great day” the minute your feet hit the floor in the morning. It’s worth a try right? And seriously, what do you have to lose?

P.S. I’m upping my chalkboard flower game y’all!! I took an Ink Floral class over the weekend from Tram Colwin. Here’s a pic of what I did in her intro class!! I’m feeling very accomplished and so proud of myself for signing up and going! And she is an excellent teacher!

P.P.S. It’s going to be a great day!

P.P.P.S. Dr. Fogg calls this the Maui Habit but I haven’t figured out why yet. 😂#imstillreading #tinyhabitsbook

About Chalkboard Wisdom

A couple of years ago, I bought a little chalkboard. It’s 3 1/2 inches wide and 8 inches tall. I thought I was going to use it as a grocery list. But then I didn’t.

The chalkboard sat on my kitchen counter. Waiting. Patient. Knowing her true purpose. She wanted to tell me Truths. She wanted me to see, read and learn about life through her simple messages. She wanted to help me discover how to be happy.

Often, not everyday but several days a week, she whispers something in my ear that I know I am to write on the chalkboard. And I do. Always. Without Fail. I trust her and obediently write her words down with the flaky chalk pencil and I usually add a tiny 5-petal flower. 🌸

The words are written for me but I also know that I am to share them. I believe it would be selfish of me to keep them all to myself.

My Chalkboard and I hope you find wisdom in our words that you my carry on your journey. ❤️
