Well, I lost track of my 365 Days of Inspiration posts when I went on vacation. I desperately needed the vacation and had a wonderful time, but prior to leaving I had this crazy thought that I would keep the posts going while I was on vacation. Then I thought, “No sweat – I’ll pick it up when I get home.” Right. Here we are on the second day of November and I’m finally getting back to it. Time to build my writing habit back to a winning streak once more!

I read somewhere that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. I don’t remember where I read it or who decided on that number but I like it. It is a challenge but not one that seems insurmountable. I can do anything if I take small steps toward it every day and this is today’s step. Someday those steps will add up to a masterpiece, a dance, a canvas of my life and the choices I’ve made. And when I look back I want to see movement. Maybe only teeny, tiny, tippy-toe steps but I don’t want to be stagnant. I have let my brain get in the way of action in the past and I don’t intend to let that happen going forward. New habits, or should I say, the renewing of a previous habit will keep my momentum building.

Here’s to building new habits and enjoying the changing of the seasons with the people who mean the most to us.
