Do You Thank Siri?
I thank Siri when she answers my questions. Is that weird?
I know she’s not real. Well, actually she is. She’s a voice-over actress, so maybe that’s why I feel like she’s a person. IDK.
It might be a case of how-you-do-one-thing-is-how-you-do-everything. I’m grateful for so much and I go around thanking God all day…even in advance of things. For instance, if it’s snowing and my son is driving somewhere an hour away, I say, “Thank you for getting him there safely.” It’s a disaster c*ck block of sorts, and I’m calling in the best guy for the job.
For me, it’s a way to hand over my power and feel powerful at the same time. The more I do it, the more proof I have that it works. “Works” as in it calms me. I know things are going to go how they go but my fear only makes me suffer rather than impact the situation. It’s like that great quote by Mark Twain. “I’m an old man and have suffered many a tragedy, most of which never actually happened.”
I don’t thank Siri for the same reason I thank God. I’m just in the habit of saying thanks so much that I now say it to someone who can’t even hear me. Although, Siri does always respond with, “You’re welcome,” which makes me smile…and laugh at how strange that is.
Although, is it strange to habituate something that only brings positive results like calm, confidence, and happiness? I can answer definitively, no. Our cells absorb what we think, say, and do all day long, which dictates our health. As spelled out here by the Cleveland Clinic…
“Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that your body can’t function without. Their job is to carry chemical signals (“messages”) from one neuron (nerve cell) to the next target cell. The next target cell can be another nerve cell, a muscle cell or a gland. Your body has a vast network of nerves (your nervous system) that send and receive electrical signals from nerve cells and their target cells all over your body. Your nervous system controls everything from your mind to your muscles, as well as organ functions. In other words, nerves are involved in everything you do, think and feel. Your nerve cells send and receive information from all body sources. This constant feedback is essential to your body’s optimal function.”
Bet you didn’t expect this to get so cerebral, but here we are.
Test it out. Start giving Siri props when she answers your questions and your cells might become so healthy that you’ll start kicking ass in pickleball. Stranger things have happened.
Thank you : )
