"Melody provides us with a thought to guide us through the day and she encourages us to remember that each day is an opportunity for growth and renewal." Such as this meditation on "Letting Things Happen":

Today, I will let things happen without worrying about the significance of each event. I will trust that this will bring about my growth faster than running around with a microscope. I will trust my lessons to reveal themselves in their own time.

Love that there are mantras and reminders for every day of the year. You can also read through and soak in all these amazing meditations all at once. Time to let go and grow! 🌿

Better than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits--to Sleep More, Quit Sugar, Procrastinate Less, and Generally Build a Happier Life 
by Gretchen Rubin  


What's harder than breaking old habits is making new ones! But once good habits are made, they can lead to a happier life! This book "presents a practical, concrete framework to allow readers to understand their habits—and to change them for good."

Habits can be the way to making some positive changes. Gretchen answers questions such as:

• Why do I find it tough to create a habit for something I love to do?
• Sometimes I can change a habit overnight, and sometimes I can’t change a habit, no matter how hard I try. Why?
• How quickly can I change a habit?
• What can I do to make sure I stick to a new habit?
• How can I help someone else change a habit?
• Why can I keep habits that benefit others, but can’t make habits that are just for me?

Bring on the (positive) change! 🌟
