Well if you don’t know it by now you will soon enough anyway.
I am addicted to orange soda.
This revelation just happened yesterday and the amount of it I drink per day, I will never tell a soul.
It got me thinking about habits yesterday and whether or not this “bad habit” of mine is truly worth it all. I was coloring the image enclosed with the detailed spheres and it made me think about circles. So many things in our lives are this simple shape. And whether we realize it or not, we are on a train of circles every single day. We start off our days (probably the same way), and end up circling around to get back home again at the end of the day…what we do in between are the different shapes within the circle and ultimately they are all our choice. Sometimes we forget this part. But that is what life is about—the in betweens.

your words become your actions, your actions become your habits,
your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Diet orange Sunkist has aspartame in it, and if you know anything about the stuff, you know it isn’t good for you. Like, in any way shape or form. Addiction can be labeled as doing something repeatedly even after you know it is bad for you, so I guess that labels me as an addict. I’m an orange addict.
There. I’ve come clean. But habitually, I’ve decided to do something about it. Mainly because of my dentist phobia as these teeth aren’t getting any younger. And I hate the dentist. They once had to sedate me just to clean my teeth…but that’s another story.
I figure simply looking at habits each day and reinforcing the good parts to make my life whole is the way to go for now. Taking each day one day at a time…and little by little with God’s help and direction I can move mountains. I know this to be true.
I also know this to be true because I did once pray my cavities out. It was a miracle. All joking aside, taking better care of myself though, is my ultimate objective right now. He loves me and I should too. I have a family that loves and needs me at my best. And Amen to that!
