There is no influence like the influence of habit.

Gilbert Parker

May 20th - habits

We are what we repeated do.  Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

Will Durant

It’s true, sometimes keeping good habits does help keep us going when things aren’t going so well.  Habits make life easier because once they are established, we really don’t need to do much thinking about what we’re doing, we just automatically do them.  Just like brushing our teeth every morning. 

Once we’ve established a pattern of how to do something it’s hard to break so that’s why it’s so important to keep them good ones.     Good habits aren’t always easy to form, but once you do, they’ll see you through a lifetime. 

Motivation is what gets you started.  Habit is what keeps you going.

Jim Rohn

Good habits can last a life time...

That is a great quote from Jim Rohn and so true! It is easy sometimes to develop bad habits, but they can quickly be switched to good ones if we have the motivation to do so!

My girl never comments but always reads behind me. At times she is first, but seldom. We both enjoy MA, so tonight she says, "You did not comment on MA's blog!" I did too. was my response. I came back and sure enough, my comment did not appear. I have lost a couple lately, something to so with this new keyboard. I hit some key and everything I have typed, disappears. Usually I catch it.
But to your post, you said:

That was my GEM for today, and still is.
Love from over and down here,
