I read an article in Shambala Sun that got me thinking about habits and how they can affect every aspect of our lives. The visual that spoke most clearly to me was that of a sheet of paper that has been crumpled into a ball and then re-flattened; it will never again be flat or smooth.
We have all heard a version of this parable before. What struck me about this one in particular was that a crumpled piece of paper is still usable, can still serve a purpose and yet, underneath whatever is written on it, the crinkles will be visible.
What habits do I have that are similar to the crumpling of paper? Not so bad as to cause significant damage but detrimental enough to cause wrinkles and ripples in my life.
Worth thinking about.
