Monday Motivation - The Red String
The red string is tied around one's wrist to ward off the evil eye. But in reality you bring about your own evil eye. It's worn on the wrist as a reminder to "to no evil." By this, the string reminds us to think twice before speaking negatively, or harming another.
For people who study Kabbalah, such as Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Madonna, and many more, the red string is their reminder of their faith, (Kabbalah is not a religion, it's a belief) and to ward off the evil eye by doing no evil.
But it doesn't have to be a red string. It can be a ring, any ring, or even a bracelet for which the only meaning of wearing it is for the purpose of reminding you to, take one less bit of food, say something nice, do no evil.
A bracelet or ring, or even a string tied in a visible place, where you can see it everyday, to remind you of a habit you want to start, and make it a regular habit, as you have a constant reminder in place.
What could be your red string? What kind of reminder would help you to achieve your goals, or start/change a habit?
