“I saw my mother in a different light. We all need to do that. You have to be displaced from what’s comfortable and routine, and then you get to see things with fresh eyes, with new eyes.” _Amy Tan, American author
Routine can become rigid.
Like sitting in our easy chair for a couple hours–it feels very comfortable–that is until it is time to get moving again and then we realize how stiff our joints have become.
Remember, we are always serving a greater cause, a greater good, and a greater One than ourselves and our own curiosity, comfort and fulfillment.
Matter of fact, adhering to well-defined, satisfying, and predictable habits and routine that causes you to become inflexible and numb to the greater opportunities and needs could be one of the first signs of a calcified and wasted life.
The ONE THING for today: All habits and routines need to come with an expiration day. Be quick to toss them away the moment a better opportunity becomes available. Remember, you do not serve your habits and routines, they are to serve you with your goal of becoming a better person for a greater good.
