Adults follow paths. Children explore. Adults are content to walk the same way, hundreds of times, or thousands; perhaps it never occurs to adults to step off the paths, to creep beneath rhododendrons, to finde the spaces between fences.
– Neil Gaiman, Ocean at the end of the Lane.
It is so easy to fall into the same foot steps every day. To do the same things. Some sort of habits or rituals for the day are good because it helps to focus our energy and intention for the day. Maybe a ritual for working out in the morning or evening. Meditation, running or for what you eat for breakfast. But other things, if we get stuck in them become walls that hinder us. Always eating the same food, going to the same cafe, watching the same type of movies or only reading books by the same type of authors. It is easy to fall into one of these traps and it might be hard to know the difference between a habit that gives you energy or one that hinders you. But it is good to check your assumptions once in a while.
