Have you ever noticed how much energy it takes to form a new habit?
In the initial stages it's all new and the novelty itself affords a fair amount of impetus and drive.
But then …
Like slogging through viscosity,
becomes exactly that:
Which makes it easy to forget. Or become distracted. Or just choose not to do it.
Take flossing teeth, for example.
Or changing an eating pattern.
I think the key here, at least for me, is to remember that an individual failure is singular; A one-time mess-up that doesn't reflect on my overall character. It was just a tired moment where my energy to push into the new habit became MIA for the moment- but not dead.
There's been a lot going on recently and I haven't been as consistent with the Blog as I would like to be. Sometimes I think about just letting it go.
But then, I choose to remember why I am doing this in the first place, and then I say, "well, get back in the saddle and write something".
So here I am,
writing. : )
