Thinking about

… attachment to habits.

I’ve been all over the board today, but for the most part, my spare time has been spent surfing the ‘net.  It’s something of a habit for me.  Not sure if it’s a compulsion, but definitely a habit – and I indulge just about every time I have “nothing else” to do.  But of course I do always have something else to do.

Another habit I have is making sure I eat all that is on my plate, even if it means I eat beyond my comfort level.  It’s more uncomfortable for me to leave the food.

I’ve been looking at my habits this week and thinking about what I get out of them.  Most of the time, the ‘reward’ is not having to sit through whatever feeling I might be feeling at the time.  And I’m quite attached to that reward.

It’s the attachment that I really think I need to address.  How to weaken it and if possible break it.  When I think about how much I will gain if I start to break these attachments, I start to feel hope – and for once, not guilt.

And for the record, I have an unhealthy attachment to living in a stressed state.  I actually think this may be the most important attachment for me to break.
