The New Bed Bonanza

You should know by now that the only reason I decided to have kids was so I would always have something to write about.

Just kidding, but it does bring home the point that you, like me, have multiple little episodes of joy each and every day if you were to just focus and reflect on them.

Last Sunday we decided we were going to surprise Brax with a big boy bed. And when he got home from my parents house, he went right in and started squealing and jumping on it.

He was so excited!

Needless to say, he didn’t wind up sleeping in the bed that night because he was so excited that he couldn’t stay still. A whole new world of possibilities had opened up for him.

This certainly was a novel experience.

Novelty is the greatest aphrodisiac in life.

Enthusiasm makes things easy to do and to get excited about.

But what happens when that excitement wears off? Ah. That’s where endurance and commitment must come in.

Don’t confuse the initial excitement you have with a new goal with thinking that the habits required are going to be easy to form.

They won’t be. The great and bad things about habits is that they are extremely difficult to break.
