Your normal pattern

Share

Some years ago, after hearing that the definition of insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something different’, I decided to take a closer look at how I did things so as to not to look insane. I had gotten into habits – both conscious and subconscious. The conscious ones were hard to break because I was so used to doing them and the subconscious ones I didn’t even know about. Either way patterns were created.

The other day I noticed that I was doing something different in my life only because I questioned the feelings I was having. Any other time, I would have just had the feeling and acted from it. This time, I asked myself why was I feeling that way and what was different.

It was then that I realized I had broken a pattern and fell right into an epiphany. Apparently not doing the same thing over and over again has more rewards than sanity.

Here is today’s “Kinyofu’s Thought of The Day“:

Your thoughts and feelings will confront you if you break your normal pattern. If you pay attention, you will be able to identify your deep seated motives and desires.
