I realize that daily routines can be taxing, but we have to look at it in a positive way, so it doesn’t drive us nutty.
Here are 5 things people have a problem with when it comes to their daily routines. I am here to point out that these are blessing, because it would really be a problem if these routines were taken away. So wake up and look at the bright side.
1. Find daily grooming a drag. Getting up in the morning and taking a shower, shaving, hair and makeup (make up not so much for the guys, I hope. LOL). Then to top it off having to figure out what you are going to wear.
Give me a break people how would you feel if you didn’t have a shower, no razor or even no hair. And when you went to look in your closet you found you didn’t even have a closet, let alone clothes to put on.
All of these things we have at our disposal are blessing and things to be grateful for. Be happy you have your morning routine. If you find it hard to see how these are blessing and things to be grateful for; try going camping the old fashion way. Pitching a tent and peeing on the ground. Forget the makeup and hair, ‘This is a come as you are party’.
Hey, I know the traffic can be the pits or the train commute can be over crowded and on a hot day, and people can smell not so good by the end of the day.
Would you prefer not to have that a job? Would you prefer not to have that car? There are many carjackers out there that would love to have your car. Or put an ad on Craig’s list, ‘real cheap car for sale, great condition’ if you are not grateful for it.
As for the commute on the train, would you rather have to walk, run or ride your go cart to work, bike or have someone pull you in a wagon.
Let’s get real you are blessed, because you even have a job and if you were the only person on the road or train, there wouldn’t be that job to go to, because there wouldn’t be any people, so there wouldn’t be any jobs. Look on the positive side of this situation. Are you picking up what I am laying down? Getting the picture!
3. Completing their daily to-do list is very taxing. Give me a break, if you don’t like the to-do list; throw the damn thing out the window. You already know what work needs to be done for the day.
For myself I never have kept a do to-list, I figure that I know what I need to do and I get done what I can. Besides I would rather use my mind to remember and not keep looking at a list that keeps reminding me of what I still need to d0.
My advice on this one is feel blessed you have a mind and start using it. Draw smiley faces on the paper you use for the to-do-list and look at it every time you get through with a task. Be Happy!
4. It is taxing to respond to e-mails and phone calls. What the heck to you think the delete key is for. If you don’t want to respond, because most of it is junk anyway hit delete and it goes away. Kind of the like the advertisement when the guy rings the bell and his fellow employee disappears. It is really easy and it only takes a few times doing it to get the hang of it.
As for phone calls that is what we have voice messaging for. As for me I would prefer to answer the phone if possible, because I don’t like trying to get to my messages. When they invented voice messaging they should have made one key on the phone that works for getting messages. Instead of your phone number and then the good old press 1 key let alone a password on some systems you can never remember.
When it comes right down to it I am very grateful for the phone and even the email invention, because it does help take care of business much faster than the pony express did back in the day. (No I’m Not That Old, so hold down the laughter.)
5. Evening chores. Making dinner, getting to the gym is the most taxing people say.
Now I’m not as fond of the kitchen as some people are, but let me tell you I have been in a situation where I didn’t know what I was going to cook, because of lack of money to buy food. When I have to cook that dinner you can bet that I am grateful and feel blessed. It’s great fun knowing I have a choice of what to cook and something to cook.
Stop the whining and get happy you have FOOOOD many people don’t.
I realize we do have to stay in good shape, but the choice is yours on how you do this. (Don’t forget there is a good work out you and your partner can have fun doing together you can start that with a little dance.)
Do something on your damn to-do-list that you have for home. You get exercise when you’re vacuuming. Washing windows there is lots of arm exercise involved. Don’t forget all the fun work outside in the summer time. Now that can be a real workout.
To sum it up there are many people that would love to get up in the morning and have a daily routine, but are to sick or maybe paralyzed , so see the blessing in it and be grateful. In the drop of a pin your life can change.
Are you seeing that daily routine a little different now? Let me know if I made a difference in the comment box below.
