Make The Most Of Your Habits - Make Your Mark In Life
What do our personal habits say of us? Do they really talk, and even before we open our mouths? Or are they only things we do or the way we do things?
Our manner, mannerisms and characteristics are important to us, who we are, what we do, the way we live. Our customs and the way we handle life, they help to make us the person we are.
Our routines give us constancy, our practices give us confidence. Our foibles help to make us the individual we are today. Quite unlike anyone else, yet with our similarities, too.
Do we tend to do something one way only? Is this the way we have found that works for us, or is it that we have not tried anything else?
Are our habits our strengths or talents - both big and small? Or just things we do? What do we routinely do?
Whatever they are they are a part of our everyday lives. At times they add to the tension and pressures and other emotions to cope with. We keep doing something - 'out of habit' - and it does not go down well for whatever reason. These occurrences can add anxiety and further burdens to otherwise pressurized lives. We need to quickly put 'our' habits in their place. To put things into perspective for ourselves and to think and reassess - what we do, who we are, our tensions and anxieties, ourselves. At times like these words can be very powerful - healing, soothing, comforting, relaxing . . .
The power of words . . .
As we read we can let the words gently flow over us. We can let the words quietly be spoken to us in there own sweet way. We can let ourselves open to the thoughts and their meanings, the ideas and their origin, the phrases and the understandings that they have ready for us. Ready for us to assimilate and take on board. If we let them filter through and allow the words their power to move and rejuvenate. If we let ourselves be uplifted and filled with their sometimes hidden insights. Let them gently and slowly impact on our lives as we read - and in the future when we recall their meaning for us.
I hope this page will do this and more. I hope this example will help to express life in an insightful, penetrating but easy to read manner. And help us to question the lives we lead and the manner in which we live them.
Are we mostly creatures of habit
Our mannerisms, they may come into play
Our friends with the way that we act
For that is what our habits are for
Weaknesses we tend to avoid
Obsessions we come to depend
Compulsion is a habit we do not like
Custom and practice so they say
The goals we need to be after
In not pursuing rules and traditions
And out of the public eye
