We limit our thinking to the prescribed, rote patterns trained into us from in utero. It turns one day into a repeat of the last.
Shift the pattern by noticing a moment. Watch that leaf drift down from the tree. Notice the careful gait of the octogenarian. See the pattern the sun throws on the sidewalk. Notice the moment and shift the pattern.
