"The chains of habit are usually too small to be felt
until they are too strong to be broken!"~
Samuel Johnson

"We first make our habits
Then our habits make us"--John Dryden

"Habit is either the best of servants
Or the worst of masters"--Nathaniel Emmons

I love to play in water
My sign pisces (dual fish;)
May answer for some of why
And yet, I love to play in sky
All kinds of music makes me sing
To some I'll dance, I love to swing
In fact I love to do most anything
Because of that I fall prey to habits
I never do anything in pieces and bits
My problem comes from overdoing
With some things I like, I get grooving
I'm an over achiever in some peoples eyes
Which makes them think I'm not so wise

But all of that stuff is old news, I quit
I turned my habits over to my inner spirit
What I am, is a lover of  Christ's Salvation
I replaced habits with Creator's Creation
All the bad addictions I had before
Have been replaced can exist no more
I drank and drugged and loved too much
Until I made my habit Creator's touch
So I can heartily recommend a change of habit
Is awaiting anyone who chooses to grab it

Note: The best way to deal with habits is to replace the bad ones with good ones,leaving no room for the bad to come back.

A free spirit embracing the beauty and ugliness of life will always take chances in his/her expressions of them.

Overachieving is certainly relative and only reflects the passion that drives some people to do better than expected.

I have never considered those that press into new territories of thought, and the expression of perception, as being unwise . . . quite the contrary.

These, I believe, are the pioneers that compel others to break free from their daily cycles, and gnarled lethargies, to become what most only dream about becoming.

You rock sister!

My Dearest Fellow Pisces....You certainly speak for me with this get acquainted verse. We are a complicated sign and we are a little of all astrological personalities. This gives us a lot of energy and our creative side dives into the depth of dreams and vision. We have it made in that respect, don't we. Happy flying and look around. You just may find me there.
