NaBloPoMo Day 15:
If you could quit one bad habit instantly without difficulty, which would it be?
Here’s another one that’s easy peasy. If I could rid myself of a bad habit instantly, I would never be late for anything again.
Being chronically late is stressful. All the way from point A to point B, you are checking the clock, feeling panicked, wondering how in the world you are going to explain that, once again, you have messed up and now you are hopelessly late.
It’s also humiliating. People instantly assume that you don’t value them or their time, or that you think you are more important than they are. Perhaps these things are true for some people, but not for me. I can screw up and be late for something even when I am trying as hard as I can to be on time, because I do respect people and appointments and commitments.
Though there are those who would not believe it, I am actually doing much better with time now than at times in my past. I know that it is a personality trait that I am making progress toward eliminating, but oh! How I wish it could happen instantly without difficulty!
