I was thoroughly enjoying the very first article in the current issue of Kinfolk when I came across this quote: “What might seem to be eccentricity is actually fine-tuned discipline.”
I kind of really love that thought.
Some people seem super crazy. They do wonky things like wear pink on Wednesdays, or carrying a lucky penny maybe aren't crazy. They're just things that people have disciplined themselves to do and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
I like to wear palazzo pants and baggy shirts (aka upgraded pajamas) to work on a regular basis. I feel put together, while still feeling insanely comfy AND I can move around in them if I have to teach a gymnastics or dance class. It's a win-win-win situation for me, but to others, I probably look like a lazy bag lady.
I'll just call it "fine-tuned discipline" and leave it at that.
Do you have any quirks that people think are eccentric, but that you've trained yourself to do?
