Repeat after me: “I refuse to get stuck in the same routines.”

Just as I know every day the sun will rise and set in its regular routine, I also know that each new dawn brings tremendous possibilities for change. In nature, no day is exactly like the day before.

Even when my life seems routine, I realize the potential is there for me to change whatever I desire. It is healthy for my mind and spirit to change every day routines. Change keeps my mind sharp and my spirit energized. When I need to complete the same tasks day after day, I can still accomplish them in different ways so I can avoid getting into a rut.

For example, my daily tasks can be done in any order I choose, so I change the order around each day. Some days I drive a new or different route to the office. Sometimes I listen to calming music and other times I rock out! Mindless chores also give me the chance to think through new ideas and create action plans for achieving my goals. After all, do I really need to think about garbage when I take out the trash? Do I really need to focus on dirt when I vacuum? Nope!

I realized that the only way I can get stuck in the same routines and stagnate is if I allow myself to do so. It is so easy to spice up things, all I have to do is take action! When life gets boring, I can expand my knowledge reading, or conversing with new people instead of watching TV like most people. Its so exciting for me to learn a  new hobby, practice a new skill, or go on an adventure. Each of these changes sparks new passions and opens up even more opportunities for further fulfillment.

Repeat After Me: Today, I see life different from any day that has come before. I am willing to be adaptable and this will allow me to grab hold of any opportunities I may have missed.
