Something to think about

Something to think about I’m reading a book called “You Are Not Your Brain”, By Schwartz and Gladding.

When I opened the cover a one sentence quote (only this sentence was on this page), really got my attention.

Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity. 

Saint Augustine

I’ve also read this quote somewhere:

Today’s necessities could become tomorrow’s luxuries.

I think habits and what we call “necessities” are very similar in scope.

I don’t know about you, but for me I need to look at some of my habits because some of them have become necessities. Like my iced coffee every day. Honestly, it is almost like I would be lost without it. That needs to be looked at.

It has become a habit to talk or visit my mom every day for many years now. 

I made a quick overnight trip to our cabin to help my husband clean up the yard. My mom can’t talk on the phone anymore because her speech is very mumbled. 

Yesterday was the first time I haven’t talked to her when we’ve been up north. 

Now that’s a habit that is soon going to be broken through no effort of mine.

I will grieve the loss of that habit for many years.

Some habits are good.

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
