Creature of Habit

It can easily be said of me “I am a creature of habit.”  Habit is an interesting word.  A habit by description is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously.  Some say a habit is formed on average in about 66 days; others believe somewhere between 21 and 28 days.  All interesting.  What about the breaking of the habit again opinion varies.  Mostly depends on the type of habit.  Trying to stop eating chocolate or bad food for example probably will take longer than say……..most anything!!  And so it goes with starting a good habit say like exercise. Making exercise a habit isn’t going to happen overnight at least not for me.  

So with this thought of habit in mind one would think that inasmuch as I have posted 978 posts to my blog that blogging for me would be a habit; something I do without thinking.  It’s not.  I’m thinking about it all the time.  For the past two years I have been blogging daily; over 730 days of daily something, something.  If I were a missionary my mission of two years would be over.  In my world of habit and order I like my blog to be posted by 6:00 a.m. Today it didn’t happen.  In a flash my so called habit was obliterated.  I’m starting to re-think my daily writing.  Don’t think I can stop on a dime.  But do believe I’m ready to make a change.
