I’m learning more and more that everything in life comes down to perspective.
And we can either get really annoyed with things, do something about them or do the best we can.
A few examples:
1. I really don’t enjoy driving in peak hour traffic at all. And that’s a very polite way of stating how I feel.
So since I have to do it, I make it as enjoyable as I can – I listen to podcasts or audio books on the way to work.
It has to be done so that’s one way to enjoy it.
These days I actually look forward to my days in the car to listen to a current book or catch up on my podcasts.
2. Related to driving, some days I don’t have early morning meetings. Instead of still rushing into the office, I take some time and have slow mornings.
Once D and the kids leave, I make a mug of tea and go read my book for a half hour before getting ready for work. It’s such a gift in my busy day because it feels really decadent, almost like I’m on holiday.
3. I don’t know why I hate packing my lunch bag so much. It’s got to get done though because we don’t have a canteen at work and no way am I walking to the mall to spend unnecessary money on food.
So I make sure I’m listening to a podcast and I focus on how all that walking up and down my kitchen is also good for my Fitbit steps 🙂
Over to you!
