Old habits die hard

Dear Ella

Read this tonight from the teachings of a Buddhist monk called Thich Nhat Hanah.  He recommends we greet our emotions and 'habit energies' -- patterns we otherwise might not recognize as passing phenomena, and mistake them for our essential selves. "Hello, my habit energy" "Hello, my anger . . worry . . sadness" When you have greeted this well known visitor, it seems easier to regard its presence as a passing thing, and let it pass!

Worth a go...

"Hello my habit anxiety"
"Hello my habit sadness"
"Hello my habit I can't"

Will let you know how it goes.

Lots of love
