My life is probably, to the casual observer, a predictable and boring one.
And it is a life that I cherish exactly for that reason.
No matter how routine and boring you think your life may be, what makes it wonderful is that it is unique to you.
No one else will live the same life you have lived. Just as it is impossible for you to live life for others.
I love hearing about or reading about other people’s lives simply because their experiences are different from mine. Oftentimes it gives me a different perspective from which to see or understand situations and events.
But it will never change my life and my journey nor will it change yours because our journeys belong strictly to us.
A day in my life is–in my view–is typical. I wake up, drink tea, get ready for work, work, come home, do some household chores and go to sleep to rest so I can get up again the next day and start again.
Sound boring right? It’s really not. Over tea (and coffee) -for my husband- is when we spend quality time together before the start of our day.
We talk about the weather or world events or about how to get rid of ants in the backyard–it doesn’t matter because we are talking and enjoying each other’s company.
Getting ready for work can include a multitude of things I do around the house including exercising or playing with my dogs before the shower-hair-makeup routine.
Work, of course, is the bulk of the day but I never underestimate the number of lives I touch every day and the lives that touch mine. And the contribution I am making to my family by earning a paycheck.
When I come home in the evening I always enjoy that first step into my home where the dogs are happy to see me and my husband too-if he’s the first one home.
My evening routines change depending on my mood and what needs to get done but it is satisfying to have so many things to do.
A day in my life may seem mundane to you but it is filled with all that is important to me.
And your life holds all the important things to you. Let’s not forget to count our blessings and enjoy a day in the life.
