Humans are creatures of habit. They say it takes 21
consecutive days of altering your existing routine to change a habit. While
this might be true in a controlled environment exactly how we humans react to
an unexpected change to our daily routine is a function of the how that person
manages the change.
This morning for example, while on my way to work, about
twenty miles east of Terre Haute, Indiana on I-70 all of a sudden my front left
tire blew out causing me to swerve towards the right shoulder narrowing missing
what appeared to me to be a young mother driving with her infant in the rear
car seat. “Thank goodness,” I whispered to myself as my car rolled to a stop, after
taking a deep breath.
Ten minutes later an Indiana
state trooper stopped to wait with me until the tow truck I had called arrived.
“Here,” he stated. “You look like you could use this,” he added as he handed me
a container of chocolate cinnamon flavored hot chocolate.
Calmly I thanked him for stopping then took the first sip of
hot chocolate. “Boy did this hit the spot,” I stated then taking a second sip.
“It is so comforting,” I added. “What kind of hot chocolate is it?”
“Sippity gourmet hot chocolate mix,” he answered.
