I have a nasty habit. It’s not a conscious one; unfortunately, its an unconscious one, which makes it much harder to cure.
Almost every day, almost all the time, I am singing a song in my head.
And, of course, it’s always a terrible one. One that something reminded me of during the day or the night before.
For example: right now, I’m singing “The First Cut is the Deepest” by Cheryl Crow.
Yeah. I know.
Last week, though, I thought up a solution, and – let me just warn you – it is genius.
Here it is: I change the tape.
Or the CD. Or the MP3, or whatever your medium of choice.
Now. That part of it isn’t all that genius. Only slightly. But here’s the really great part:
Recently, I’ve been working on becoming more spiritual. I’ve been saying affirmations, praying, and whatever.
And, so far, I love it.
It’s helping my mood a lot.
So the other day, I thought: I’m going to take advantage of my nasty, terrible-song habit by singing spiritual songs instead, thus increasing my spiritual awareness (renewed recently, if you haven’t been following along very well) during the entire day.
So, somehow, now, instead of having a nasty, annoying habit, I have an awesome habit that makes me more grateful, or more happy, or more aware of the good things in life.
I even made a list of some good songs and put them on my phone for easy reference.
Hot damn, I am good.
Right now, I really need to find that list. . .
