Einstein Quotes

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

So many of us wonder why we keep feeling the way we do, why relationships keep playing out the same way and I always like to think of this in terms of cooking something – if you constantly put in the same ingredients you will get the same cake over and over again, but if you are willing to change some of the ingredients, take a risk in doing it a little differently then you will finally get a different cake. It will require more conscious thought rather than operating on autopilot, and may take more time and more practise, but you will get a different experience that way.
