Routine can be the enemy. We get stuck in a rut of going from task to task and soon every day feels the same. It’s tunnel vision, or a mouse in a maze, or the hamster on his wheel. Never-ending sameness. But when we finally stop to breathe, we notice the little things that color our life. The simple details that may not be Instagram-worthy moments, but rather give us the nudge we need to get through the day. The little things like:
- When your jam comes on the radio and you bust a move with your family/friends in the car.
- Messages from old friends. Just checking in, telling you about their new adventures, or maybe because something reminded them of you.
- The accomplished feeling you get after you send in an assignment that has been bugging you for a week.
- Finding an old photo that you forgot had been taken. Maybe stuck between the pages of a book or in a jacket pocket.
- Waking up without an alarm. Nowhere to be, nothing to do.
- Having breakfast for dinner. Because there’s just something magical about eating pancakes and bacon at night.
