Protected By A Bubble

Day 8

Tuesdays are like the middle child. No one really pays attention to them.

We’re still tied up from Monday and caught up on the rest of the week that we just let the day pass us by. Today was no different.

Being all tucked into my little coding bubble, I had no time to worry about breaking my goal. The world was like a faint echo as I was focused on only one thing, php and CSS.

No time to do much thinking. It’s easy to keep up a new habit when you eliminate and avoid any distracting triggers.

Once you get into a routine, the only thing missing is practice and to cement that into our daily lives we need time.

We need time to fall off the wagon and get back up.

We need time to stay consistent with one element of change so that it has time to become a habit.

Falling into familiar patterns also helps ease the transition into a new habit. As a workaholic, disappearing into my own bubble is not only easy but effective.

Out of sight, out of mind.

And what’s best about being so preoccupied with work is that reality also gets to be put on mute. It makes me wonder if the only way I can take any real steps forward is by embracing and accepting my anti-social hermit inner ego.
