I arrived home from my vacation around 9pm last night, and am still unpacking – physically and mentally. I’ve recently been wondering if we sometimes disappear into our habits.
In other words: if we were to change our habits completely, would many of us just disappear?
Are we just the sum of out habits?
I say this because I am at this very moment living in this middle space between a world where all my habits changed, and the world of habits – the thousands of habits – that surround my ordinary life.
I haven’t let them all creep in just yet – I’m waiting for 9am, at my desk in work, before I let them hit with full force. This might be unwise – we’ll see.
My wife anxiously checked her work email last night from home to check for any ‘crisis’. I asked her if it made her feel any better.
She didn’t quite answer, but I think the non-answer was ‘no’.
Sorry to those of you who left comments that didn’t appear until now. They should be up there.
It appears that the Irvingia posts have become an absolute mess. Anyone trying to glean some simple facts from this will get lost in at least 50 highly interesting digressions and probably come away more confused than anything else.
To this end, I think a survey is in order.
Your task, those of you interested in the Irvingia supplement, is to suggest 10 questions that I can put to the the people taking the stuff.
Please leave comments on this post as to what those questions should be.
I’ll try to select the best 10 and survey the group – maybe it will help us all make some sense of it all.
