Creature of Habit

After some discussion about the "stepping out of your story" post, I have come to realize what a creature of habit I am. My family, too. I do the same things every morning. I wake up, brush my teeth, use the bathroom, get my laptop and read email, blogs and then write a post if I feel like it. Since Punkin has been out of school, I usually get up and watch some TV before I either have to go to work or do some work at home. If I don't get a chance to do these things, I feel ripped off.

But I have come to understand that these habits are not unhealthy. They actually soothe me. So why would I change my routine? I am just not one of those people who can jump out of bed and attack the day anymore. I used to be so productive at all costs. I don't know if I am just getting old or if I am making progress by not being so driven.

What routines comfort you? Which ones would you like to change?

Routine is very comforting to me, too. Change throws me off.
