There are good habits and there are bad habits and there are unconscious habits. It’s interesting to think about how an unconscious habit moves into the lens of good or bad. At what point does the unconscious reach a point of acknowledgment? Is it the force of the acknowledgment — the context in which the habit becomes conscious — that yields the classification of good or bad that the habit goes on to hold? Would a different sets of circumstances tied to to the revelation of the habit reorient the way the habit it viewed?

Our first and immediate interpretation of reality has a lot to do with the next move in the series of actions we chose to partake. And those actions become the story that we write. Too much first and immediate without contemplation can have you pretty far down a particular road pretty fast.

Perhaps sometimes we need to slow down and interpret our interpretation of how we chose to do things — to ask why alongside what.
