Life can become repetitive, yes it can, the same old routine, same people, same tired old jokes, same complaints, and boy are their negatives. It seems that the whole day is spent dealing with the problems of others, or the dissatisfaction(s), you yourself are experiencing.
It is true that often our lives are regulated, or for whatever reason, our days are compartmentalized. We develop routines, we make or are put on a schedule, this leads to deadlines, objectives, goals, and on and on it goes. What we do is monitored, evaluated, assessed and rated.
What we eat, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, everything it seems comes off some kind of production line, assembly line, processing station, and yet we don’t know or realize that we have let our own lives replicate a mechanical and programmed “lifestyle”
Oophs, what happened here, LOL … a time shift, this was a picture taken for a community post by Nat Fabman in 1954 (Life Magazine) of a Fresno dairy farmer (Arch Badertscher) milking his cows alongside his two farm cats, Blackie and Brownie. A little playfulness in the day, sort of gives a warm fuzzy, and a bit of a smile. The first few pictures, didn’t do much for you did they?
Sometimes, NO, not sometimes, on a regular basis, we have to STOP and get off the treadmill, and get out to explore, and smell the roses(flowers} no one else can do it for us. When we repeatedly do the same things day after day, life gets stale, and we find ourselves in a rut.
Usually the fences and walls we find around us, were man-made (look in the mirror). John Wayne was said to have started his day by saying,”yes, looks likes it is going to be another fine day” no matter what… begin your day in a positive way, and work towards carrying that thought with you throughout the day.
