A New Day

wake upAs I walked out of the bedroom this morning and closed the door behind me, I stopped for a moment and just stood there. With a deep sigh of frustration, the discouraging thought came to mind, “Again? Another day, just like yesterday. Oh joy.” Talk about waking up on the wrong side of the bed.

Unless I’m traveling or an emergency occurs, my days are very monotonous. In fact, I could break down my daily schedule for you almost minute by minute. How boring is that?

After wallowing in self pity for a few moments I realized how silly I was being. “Get over it. Today doesn’t have to be the same as yesterday. I can do something different.”

If we get tired of doing the same old thing day in and day out, why not change it? It’s actually very simple to do. Even the smallest action done differently makes a difference. As I told someone yesterday, “If you never do anything, you’ll never do anything at all.” That was deep, wasn’t it?

So today will not be like yesterday. Today will be different and it will be good.

If you don’t like something, change it. Spice up your life. Live a little. Be wild. Have fun. Break down your boundaries and fly. The only thing stopping you, is you.

  1. Ah, I love moments when I have that realization that I CAN do something different! I am big on routine, but if I’m not careful, my routine turns into a rut! I don’t like ruts! 🙂

    So – what did you do different? Something big or something small? Did you go get ice cream to have for dessert? 🙂

    Now I want ice cream…

      Those ruts are so hard to get of when you land in one. I seem to land in them often, but as you can see I’m working to change that.

      After working on a few work articles, I went clothes shopping for myself and my son. That’s something I seriously despise most days, but today was actually quite enjoyable. Ice cream sounds good too!


  2. Good for you! It can be so easy to get in a repetitive slump… I’m changing my day up by cooking and eating brussel sprouts for the first time! Hope your day is unique and fun

    I do the same thing. I wake up and think “Yes today is no different to yesterday. I am going to work and then I will come home etc etc”.
    I live for weekends. lol


  4. I actually walk in to work through a different side of the building on some days. Because I can. 🙂

    Yeppers! We can choose to do something different. My choice is whether to get dressed or not. When I really want to shake things up, I choose a pair of my wildest socks. 🙂 Seriously, the days I feel as if I’m stuck in a rut, I go to my favorite place–our deck. I sit there for a little while and close my eyes and only listen. No thinking. It doesn’t usually last long because I can’t sit still very long, but it is enough time to shake the drudgery up a bit.

      Wild socks are a great way to spice up the day. A nice, peaceful deck sounds ideal. That would be a great way to get away from it all, even if only for a short while.

    Just the tiniest thing can bring a whole new spark to the day at times – I am so totally with you on the don’t complain about it, do something about it theme. Had to hit someone over the head with that idea recently and I ended up writing about it for Ticked off Tuesday


    • mewhoami says:

      Yes it can. Sometimes it requires a knock over the head to get someone thinking straight again. I’m glad you’re not afraid to tell people like it is. Thanks for the link. I’ll head over to read it.

  9. I don’t change many things, each day – but I try like crazy to SEE new things each day. It helps!
