Tuesday tease: habits

Plus, Kindle books I forgot I owned.

I have struggled with hard habits in my life. I have found these hard habits are only broken by harder habits. Nature abhors a vacuum, meaning I cannot just quit doing something in my life without replacing it with something else. When I am tearing down one habit in my life, I need to simultaneously be threading a new cord of habit. As the new cable becomes strengthened, it guides me, helps keep me making the right decision even in times when I do not want the right path. Intention becomes choice, choice becomes action, action becomes habit, habit becomes character.

Unbroken: Meditations on Suffering in the Right Direction, Jason French
