one small change

This is a very rare, no photo post for me.
I recently found an old post from another blog titled one small change. The idea was to change one little thing every month for the better. It doesn't matter how big or small the change is, so long as it is for the good of your family or others.

I decided to give this a go, as my blog title says - one step at a time - it is the way things get done.
Chris often likes to quote the following -
      "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great"
I'm not sure who said this originally but chris likes to say it a lot around here whenever I'm worried about not being ready or starting something new.

It's so true, my one small change may not mean much now but as the small changes add up it could become something great.

Our one small change for July has been to keep our showers under 4 minutes, so far it has been fine. I'm sure it will be harder in winter when we crave the warm water but  hopefully if we get into the habit now it will be easier. This change should save water (good for the environment), and save on our water bills (good for us).

If you'd like to join in, please leave a comment.
