Creature of Habit

Whether it's religiously hopping on the first cart on the L train to Bedford Avenue or starting my morning with a large iced latte with two pumps of vanilla and two shots of espresso while simultaneously devouring a peanut butter acai bowl topped with granola, cacao nibs, (more peanut butter) and strawberries or going to the same gym at least once a week or visiting the same eyebrow lady on Driggs Avenue or using the same make-up and skincare products routinely everyday or always having a leather jacket in any weather or just bumping the new Khalid album repeatedly down the sidewalk or on the train or writing the longest sentence known to man, I am a creature of many habits.

While each of this day-to-day snippets can easily be a memoir to my entire life, I recently discovered that some old habits don't die hard.

Habits can change and sometimes it's as easy as switching from coffee to tea (or in my case just straight up water) or as hard as wearing the same monochromatic color palette in your wardrobe. Speaking of wardrobe, pops of red have been frequenting my day-to-day wear as of late. 

Although I still take the first cart on the L train, I am straying away from sugar-loaded breakfast options. Acai bowls only sounds healthy. Surprise, surprise. Thank you, Internet. And instead of taking the same route home everyday, I lean more towards taking some detours. I'm learning it's okay to revisit old areas of my life I used to enjoy and love. And for me, that's discovering places in New Jersey and New York that slows down time in ways unimaginable. Sadly, you gotta wait for another post for that one.

Sadly, you gotta wait for another post for that one.

My point is, new ways or old, just choose to do the things that make you happy and the things you love and you'll soon make a habit out of good days.
