Creatures of Habit
Now there are probably a host more of these so called habits nothing more comes to mind and I do not want to bore you!. BUT here's the thing, I have learnt and realized that habits, rituals, repetitive tasks can be motivating, helpful with organization BUT also crippling and an out right pain in the butt for yourself and others.
Habit's have done me good especially on vacation for example I recently had a vacation in Maui, Hawaii and I fell straight into some really fabulous habits. Like; Honolulu Coffee every morning, walks along the beach morning and afternoon, workout's every other day with my significant other and relaxation on sun lounger's in the same spot under the same umbrella everyday...I came home feeling like jelly.
What popped out at me during the movie is with some habit's we can become so rigid in our action's, thought's and daily pattern's that we may become self-destructive, never opening our eyes to what appear's before us or happen's around us. Never enjoying the moment in front of us and the joy that surrounds us. Never realizing how this bad habit is affecting the personal relationship with ourselves and those closest to us. If we just let go of those rigid habits our lives could quite possibly flourish and be extraordinary!
Perhaps take a minute to think about a habit you may have formed or a daily ritual or task that no matter what, it is engrained in your everyday living. How does this ritual/habit affect your thought pattern's, mood, relationship's and life. Is it positive or negative??
BUT!!!! and a big but remember habits can also keep us constrained and STUCK!!!!
So perhaps now is the time to detox our lives, unleash, break free from some of those old (or new) habits and allow yourself to walk free.......you may be surprised what sit's before you.
Till next time, remember life can be a "tidy business"
