The other day on the Yahoo forum, someone posted a link to this talk about "trying something new for 30 days." It was great timing, because I've been thinking a lot lately about both changing habits and the elasticity of the brain.
Over on the forum, Sheila challenged us to pick a compulsion to give up for 30 days. I know what I choose: for 30 days, I will NOT do anything with my neighbors' garbage cans: I will not move them, I will not put them out if they don't, I will not close the lid if the rain blows one open. I don't think it's going to be easy, but I'm sure going to try. And it just might become a habit.
Do you want to join me? I think we can do it!
