MAKE A CHANGE

"And that is how change happens, one gesture, one person, one moment at a time." - Libba Bray



Routines can be a wonderful thing. Consistency brings comfort, and with comfort comes ease. But it doesn't just stop there. We can become incredibly efficient at completing the task at hand, i.e. cooking a meal, planning a party, putting on make-up, etc. 


But there's ONE tiny thing about routines that I'm not so fond of.


They can easily let our minds drift elsewhere, causing us to daydream most of the times. I've definitely been there. 

Same dance choreographs will make you bored after a while, you get sleepy when it comes to the same yoga classes and poses everyday, you get sick of writing the same assignments every night, etc. And it's just small things like that that make our minds wander. 

Familiarity basically makes us feel that we don't have to think about what we're doing because we're constantly doing the same thing over and over again. I'm going to be honest with you. Sometimes, I have no recollection of my journey on how I've gotten from point A to point B. None whatsoever. Because routines are instilled in our brains. 


Dear readers

Today, take it upon yourself to make a simple change in your day. It doesn't have to be a huge, massive change - it just has to be different. The change itself might not affect your life immensely, but that one small change opens up your heart and mind, along with millions of other possibilities. 

  • Part your hair differently for a change
  • Go to a new cafe instead of your normal go-to places to eat
  • Use your left hand (I'm right-handed) to brush your teeth instead (vice versa)
  • Try that new recipe (or try cooking, for that matter)
  • Look at the mirror and ask yourself what do you see
  • Smile
Just small and simple things like these are a few examples I've been doing recently. It messes with your brain but in a good way because your brain will not have time to drift away and wander off elsewhere. 

Constant change is probably one of the scariest things to most people (myself included) but it is also one the most beautiful things about this life if you can view it the right way. 



Embrace it ...... Fall in love with it X
