Creature Of Habit – My Lizard Brain

Creature Of Habit – My Lizard Brain

Lately I’ve been catching up on my Netflix which includes Dexter. My brother highly suggested I should check it out, so I did and I absolutely love it. In season 7 his sister’ Lt. Morgan, discovers he is a serial killer and travels with a “dark passenger.” Dexter explains how their father gave him a “code” by which to vet his victims; he only kills deserving “bad” people who “slip through the cracks” of the justice system. He has a knack for learning of his victims guilt and determining if they meet the requirements for his “table.” He describes this to his sister as his “lizard brain.”
I thought “lizard brain” was fitting for this entry because I too have a unique mind and the most unconventional perception on life. I’m a creature of habit, but many of my habits are rather unhealthy and long-term will not be conducive to my livelihood. So, as a life-long resolution for health and well-being, I will try my best at changing my habits, using my brilliant lizard brain. I know the process for this will not be focusing on removal of the bad habits, but rather replacing them with new habits. It will take about 30 – 45 days to get new routine in place and the same time-frame for eliminating said habits.
If successful (the sooner the better), I will find more contentment and thus happiness in all I put my hand to. This lizard brain of mine has the capacity for such change and of this I am certain. I know my own laurels are insufficient; my thoughts must remain on the prize, my faith in God, my refuge. Only this will calm the storm that is my insanity, my creature of habit. Amen
