This Thursday’s Thought

It would appear my blog etiquette is, once again, becoming a casualty of my busy schedule. It’s not that I don’t want to be here; it’s that I am rarely in front of my personal computer long enough to so much as warm my seat.

When I got to thinking about why this might be, I realized that a great many of us are probably in the same boat. We are part of an annual, global January movement, trying new things in the hopes that if we stick to those new things, they will then become old, routine things. (Did you follow that?)

Here’s how this week’s train of Thursday Thought got moving:

Kipling’s use of the word ‘drug’ got me thinking about addictions, and soon after I connected the dots between addictions and New Year’s resolutions. So many resolutions hinge on addictive behaviours and trying to alter (or reduce/remove/recycle) them. Whether you’re a junk food junkie, a pack-a-day’er, or a couch potato soon to grow roots around your sofa, many of us tend to start a new year with an invigorating – and hopefully persistent – determination to shed these behaviours be “be the best me I can be.”

However, if Kipling is right and words truly are the most powerful drug out there, well… it looks like I’m going against the grain and staying happily addicted in 2013.

All the best with your resolutions; may your resolve never dissolve!
