The Power of Habit

Habit is really a powerful thing. There are some things that I do exclusively by the power of habit.

The reason that motivated them and the meaning they had when I started are just not there anymore.

But every circumstance changes one day.

And old habits are only quit by circumstances, because as they had a reason to start so they need a reason to quit.

A Walk

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance-

and charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces

– Rainer Maria Rilke –
