At this point in my life I can honestly say I have broken most of the bad habits I had that I thought were bad for me (or so I thought). I quit smoking, I gave up the fast food addiction, etc. Now my vices are pretty limited shoes, coffee, craft supplies and there is no way I am giving them up. (I should probably give up the coffee, some days I vibrate but...)
Anyhow, I have noticed lately that due to some nasty turns of the universal wheel of fortune I have given way to a very bad habit that I have got to kick. Negative thinking. I am spending way too much time these days looking at my life from a negative point of view and that is making me have a much harder time of things.
So I have picked something that I want, in this case I found an online course in dressmaking in a style I like, (I am thinking like Jessica Rabbit but it's a bit more Marilyn Monroe ish) and for every day that I notice that I am drowning myself in negative thinking and turn my perspective around I am going to put a dollar into a jar towards this course.
Given that they say it takes 30 days to break a bad habit and the course costs $40 I am optimistic about my chances of turning my thinking around towards the positive. Plus I get to decorate a new jar as all my piggy banks are currently in use. And I LOVE to raid my craft stash!
PS. If anyone knows where I can get sparkly, red fabric to make a dress with that won't break the bank feel free to fill me in. (I am not kicking the stash addiction after all)
