Caution: May not be habit-forming

I’m not a creature of habit. I try to form all kinds of good habits, but I often go astray. No matter how good my intention may be, I’m a drifter of sorts. I have to work hard at sticking with a routine and if something throws me off, it’s sometimes hard to get back into it.


Oh sure, I have certain daily habits like making coffee first thing in the morning, taking care of our pets, getting ready for work, brushing my teeth, etc., but those are obvious things that must be done on a daily basis. I’m talking about things where a different choice could easily be made. Like going to the gym (or not), meditating every day at 6 a.m. (or hitting the snooze 13 times), cleaning up the kitchen immediately after dinner (or turning off the light and pretending the mess isn’t there), going to bed at 10:30 every night (or reading just one more chapter in this book…). Or blogging when I said I would…😳 (instead of watching Netflix until past the time I wanted to go to bed).


Several months ago I fell out of a not-so-regular habit of blogging. To get back on track, a mere three days ago I set the intention to post every day the month of December. Technically, we’re now in the fourth day of the month and I missed the third day posting, but I’m still counting this one because (1) it’s still December 3rd in Mountain Time, and (2) I’m still up, so Monday hasn’t really ended. So, true to my word, here’s my third post for December – three days in a row.πŸ˜„

Hope you had a great Monday!

  1. I made a goal to blog every day in October. I had tried that once before and it was an epic fail! I learned it’s not as easy as it seems! I ended up not being able to post one day in October but it was out of my hands as our Internet went down (we were told it was due to an outage in our area). So I missed that day but really didn’t count it since it was out of my hands and beyond my control. I admire people who blog every day as it does take an incredible amount of time. I can’t do it. But it’s fun to take on the challenge every now and then!

    I wish you well on the daily posting in November and look forward to reading your posts!


    1. Thank you, Gail. It is really hard to post every day! I’m only 4 days in and have already forgotten twice until late at night to do it! πŸ™‚ It really has made me appreciate the people who post every day too! I’m hoping by the end of the first week I’ll be in a better habit of remembering!

      Thanks for reading and for your support!
