Creature of Habit

I am a creature of habit.
I stick with the familiar and rarely go out on a limb and change.

I keep clothing for years because I like it. So what if it is old and out of style.
I wear my hair the same three ways that I have since I was a teenager. Up in a ponytail. Down. In a clip.
I eat the same meals at a restaurant every time we go. Why change a good thing? I know it tastes good.

I watch the same TV shows.
Take the same roads when driving.
Go to the same stores.

And food. I have eaten Lucky Charms and half of a bagel for breakfast for the last 6 months straight. Every.Single.Morning.
With a glass of apple juice.

Maybe it is time to step out of my box and try new things.
I will let you know when I do.
And if it works out for me.

Are you a Creature of Habit?

I am definitely a create of habit. I oreder the same things at certain restaraunts. When I shop I go about the store in a certain way aisle by aisle even if I know I don't need anything in the aisle. It is really hard to break those kinds of things!

Lucky Charms AND a bagel???? Those are two of my most favorite breakfast foods ever. I've never thought to combine them. It's always one or the other.
Hmmmm....maybe I will step out of my comfort zone and GO FOR IT! LUCKY CHARMS AND A BAGEL! Together for breakfast!!!
p.s. I'm totally a creature of habit. It's always the same restaurants, same nail polish colors, same types of shoes, etc.

Oh yes, I'm a creature of habit too. I thrive off routine and consistency.

I would have to say I am 1/2 and 1/2. There are some things I really am consistant with but others I like to step over the edge and do something different. It's true you only live once and why not.

I WISH I could eat the same thing over and over. I would save so much money. But noooooo, I get bored and like to eat different things all the time. Same with my hair. I'm dying to change it right now and have to keep reminding myself of how many bad hair cuts I've had etc. and how happy I am with it right now. And restaraunts ... I OUGHT to just order what I know tastes good but I always want to try something new and end up not liking it a lot of the time.

I'm pretty consistent with shoes though. And when I find a pair of jeans I like I could wear them (and do) until they fall apart.
