Everyone needs a friend that will call and say, “Get dressed, we are going on an adventure.”
We are indeed going on an adventure and we leave tomorrow. One last load of laundry and zipping up the suitcases and we’ll be on our way.
Based on a study done in the 1960s, it was believed that it took 21 days to form a habit. Recent research led by a team at the University College London think they have uncovered just how long (on average) it takes for something to become habitual. They do not think it takes 21 days to form a habit. They believe it takes an average of 66 days to create a habit.
Any way you look at it, writing this blog has become a habit. I have written over 100 posts (minus one day for a passed kidney stone) and now, leaving for the high seas and the Mexican Riviera, I will be without internet reception. (Well, I could pay for internet, but it’s way too expensive!)
So I hope you’ll forgive me for missing posts from Saturday to Friday the 13th. And I hope that NOT writing the blog for seven days doesn’t become a new habit for me.
