Does Your Life Feel Like Groundhog Day?
you doing the same things over and over again? Waiting for something
different to happen?
Remember Phil, in the film Groundhog Day?
“I told you. I wake up every day, right here, right in
Punxsutawney, and it's always February 2nd, and there's nothing I can
do about it.”
lives sometimes become a little too routine, predictable and
monotonous. While routines are comforting and useful, they can feel stifling if your whole life revolves around them. You get into
a rut, do the same things every day, and wonder where the time went
at the end of the week.
can do something about it. Keep your basic routines, but get
them done and out of the way so you have time for fun. Break out of
your normal pattern. You don't have to do something drastic or
life-altering. Any small change will give your daily life more
something new. Take a different route to work. Do something nice
for someone. Change your hairstyle. Try a new menu item. Choose a
different color shirt. Make an appointment with yourself to enjoy a
hobby that you love. Go for a walk outside. Rearrange your
furniture. Buy flowers for no reason. Take a class. Buy shoes. Call an old
friend or make a new one.
above all...enjoy your life! The groundhog really doesn't know if
spring is coming, so you can't depend on him to tell you what to do.
Life's much too short to wait around for something to happen. It's
up to you to make the most of the life you choose.
