I don’t retain habits well. My habits wax and wane. They need constant renewal.
I derive pleasure from seeking out new things. Too often that squeezes out the old, even when the old helps me live my life more effectively.
Luckily, I’ve discovered it’s easier to re-ignite old habits than to start new ones. Each time I fail to maintain a habit, I don’t beat myself up. I let it go until I’m in a place to rekindle. Until I have the energy to fan the flames and build my habit anew.
I am in that place again.
