It’s amazing how easy it is to get out of a well-established habit. (Kind of depressing, actually.)
There was a point in my life where I got up at 5:00am every day. By choice.
This now seems like my worst nightmare.
But at the time I lived with twelve girls and I reeeeaaalllly liked to get my shower in first and have some quiet space to myself. (What’s a half-introverted girl to do?!)
When I started this blog it was for many reasons. One of them – the main one – was to help establish a healthy discipline of regular, free writing.
I happily did this every day for six months. (It was very, very rare for me to miss a day.)
Not only did I do it every day, I LOVED IT.
Then the force that was our July hit and I just couldn’t do it. (Fine, there’s grace for that.)
But now life is back to normal and I’m finding it sooo hard to get back to the every day.
I want to – I love and enjoy writing! I have time to – who can’t find 5 minutes in “normal” circumstances?!
So….. what’s the problem here?
I’m not sure.
But it’s a little frightening for me to see just how quickly and easily a well-cultivated habit (discipline) can be derailed if we’re not careful.
What’s a goal-oriented girl to do?
Well, keep on trying to get back on track I suppose.
Q for you: Surely you’ve had a good habit fall to the wayside at one point or another. What helped you to get back on track?
