#30. The days are beginning to blend
There’s something happening in my life right now that I didn’t want to happen. Ok, Ok, I just lied to you. It hasn’t even happened yet, but it’s happening. The days are starting to blend. The minutes become hours, the hours become days, and so on and do forth until I get to January 1st wondering where the time flew by. It’s happening, but I can stop it right now.
It seems like days blending together is a process. After an exciting milestone or some other type of event, a couple weeks go by. After a couple of weeks go by, people start to get back into their routine. That’s great, routines are great. But, they’re not always so helpful. Sometimes we get so comfortable in our routines that we start to just be comfortable in life.
A few things
There are a few things that I’ve found that stops that either impede or stop this process altogether.
First, is meeting new people. This is easy for me, since I go to school everyday. There are literally thousands of people that I go to school with. This allows me to meet someone new every day and still have hundreds or even thousands of people left over.
For now, I don’t have to worry about that. Maybe I will later, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come across it.
Next, is this publication. DailyCupofJo keeps me fresh. Even if I talk on the same topic, I produce a different piece every day so I can post it on this publication. It keeps the days from blending because it gives me something to think about every day. Many days I don’t know what to write about. The fact that I’m often unsure also keeps the days from blending. Because of have to problem solve and react to something new every day, everything doesn’t blend together. Even if I do the same general thing every day, there will always be a little part of my day that is unique.
The struggles and victories of everyday life is something that also keeps the days from blending. Every time I wake up in the morning, there’s some new challenge to conquer. When I conquer them, I feel like a conqueror. When I crumble and fail, I don’t feel so great, but I move on pretty quickly. This keeps every day unique. If the challenge was always the same, I would get bored with my life.
Think about it. Would you play a video game that was the same level every single time? No, it would get boring very quickly. You might fail a couple times, but you’ll get the hang of it pretty soon. Then what would you do. Would you play the same level over and over. That’s a waste of time.
I’m doing my best
I’m doing my best to keep the days from blending. For now, it’s working pretty well. I’m keeping myself entertained, interested and I’m trying to achieve my goals. That’s all I can really ask for right now. Hopefully this is a long-term thing. I don’t want this to end. I don’t want the days to blend. When the days blend, I don’t enjoy it as much. I want to enjoy my life. If it isn’t broke, I won’t fix it. So, that’s what I’m doing. I’m keeping the days from blending.
