“We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.”
John Dryden ~ 1631-1700, Poet and Playwright
Whew! What a week! Back from 5 days of laughing, writing and guiding young scribes at my Young Writers’ Summer Studio, followed by afternoons with my two boys, browsing toy stores and craft shops, walking our little downtown area and checking out new shops, getting ice cream, ordering in.
A week of no routine also meant breaking all of my good habits. I fell off my eating clean plan, made excuses not to work out and ignored all of those other monotonous tasks and responsibilities. Yes, I fed my children. Sheesh!
We all need those days or even weeks when we just S L O W down. Though, I’m paying for that relaxation now!
Habits do make us who we are. Time for me to get my focus back.
Are your habits helping or hurting you?
