The Habit of Not Getting into A Habit

It makes things a lot easier

My better half has absolutely no doubt that this is my best quality. My family members and friends find it difficult to comprehend. Personally, it is also something I like about myself.

It is the habit of not getting into a habit. Over the years I have kind of mastered it.

The fact that I get bored doing the same stuff over and over again may have something to do with it. But it’s a fact that I have never fallen into that ‘habit trap.’

There have been occasions when I keep doing something for a somewhat longer period, but it never comes to a point where it gets difficult to give it up completely.

This is something I believe has also helped me live life on my terms as habits tend to hold you back.
