As quickly as my Japanese friends like to say “Ohayo”, a fast action “brace yourself Sheila” tale from Ohio, tells of a woman who was granted a legal name change from Sheila (the ugliest name out there she says) to Sexy! By all reports, her husband and teenage daughters support her in what reflects her personality–“fun and free spirited & this change would make her complete!”
Ok…cheers to Sexy (formerly known as Sheila) Ranea Crabtree and thoughts of the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…whatever that might mean…
Have you ever had those times when you have feelings of wonderful wellbeing or funk or doom and gloom that you just can’t explain the reasons for and when asked to do so, just can’t name it?!…
They say there is a rhythm to our lives and when that rhythm is in sync, we have those well being feelings & when it gets interrupted or out-of-sync then unsettling anxiety can rear its ugly head.
An oversimplification perhaps, but it does seem to dovetail with the idea that we are creatures of habit and gain much comfort from our routines and frequent ways of going about and doing things.
Thoughts of life’s graces & smiles in a nunnery turn to a few concluding quotes!:
A habit is something you can do without thinking – which is why most of us have so many of them. ~Frank A. Clark
The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken. ~Samuel Johnson
The second half of a one’s life is made up of nothing but the habits one has acquired during the first half. ~Feodor Dostoevski
Habits are safer than rules; you don’t have to watch them. And you don’t have to keep them, either. They keep you. ~Frank Crane
Every grown-up consists wholly of habits, although one is often unaware of it and even denies having any habits at all. ~Georges Gurdjieff
Habit with him was all the test of truth;
It must be right: I’ve done it from my youth.
~George Crabbe, The Borough
Cheers to an habitually great Thursday in the style & flare to which you’ve been accustomed!–can you name it?
