Groundhog Day

Some routines are good. Other routines, not so much. My morning routine is pretty consistent…get up at 4:30am, run/walk with Rock, shower, eat breakfast, go to work, get to boys’ stuff in the evening. But we can also use those routines as a reason as to why we shouldn’t change our lives. Our lives become so predictable that if people were really paying attention, they could set their watches to the same things we do in our lives. We become complacent and muddle through just to get to the next day and do it all again. Good grief. Aren’t you tired of the same old record being played again and again? Have you ever seen the movie, “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray? The premise of the movie is that he is sent to cover Punxsutawney Phil to see if we will have 6 more weeks of winter or an early spring is coming our way. But a storm rolls in, and he quickly realizes that each day he wakes up and he is living the same day over and over again. He learns from the previous day what big water-filled pot hole to overstep, what people like to eat, etc. He has learned their routines and can predict what he will do based on what their previous actions have been. Do you want to live your life that way? I like variety…I like differences…I like spontaneity (to some degree). “It’s time to stop hiding from life and say yes to the adventure of being alive. Enough of the routine already. Go on, have an adventure. Do what you always wanted deep within your heart. Do what brings you alive and the universe will open doors when once stood only walls.” – KSAre you ready to make that change? If not, then are you settling for the life you have because you have not yet committed to life you could have? Don’t keep living your life in the same routine. Be open to new things that can change your life forever. Step outside your comfort zone, take a few chances, and smile today. Don’t be a groundho
