If you haven't yet made a commitment to yourself to practice the Monthly Habits as they come, please do it. Besides Getting Dressed To Shoes Hair and Makeup, my number one commitment was to incorporate and practice the monthly habits by adding each one as they came and by the time 2011 was over, I could easily say that I was successful. How did I do it? By always making the monthly habits the priority like I have the 3 Habits for each Routine to be my priority.
When I realized we will never be finished with this is when I finally came to agreement with myself that I must continue to do these habits like brushing our teeth everyday. We are never finished brushing our teeth. The minute we eat something they usually need to be brushed. Same way with Dust. We can dust and by the end of the day there will be some dust forming. It we can get into a weekly habit of dusting that is the standard I have set for myself. Certain habits are done daily, weekly and monthly. How we get there is by practicing the Monthly Habits For The Month and before you know it you have got yourself a routine.
I don't know if you are like me, but for some reason pictures speak louder than words for me. I hope this will help you as well.

So, how did you like the tour of Marilyn's Way Monthly Habits? Sometimes we make this harder than what it is. That is just our SHE nature. So when you become overwhelmed, come back to this blog and look over the habits. To me when they are all lined up like this, they look reachable. I hope it looks like it to you as well.
