Hello you beautiful folks, how are you all doing today? welcome to my another post about me rambling but trust me, this is going to be meaningful. I have been thinking about this from past year and finally I have a platform to share my feelings and also to know what you all have been thinking about it. I seriously wanna know whether you all can relate or it's just me? okay?. So, please read the post and let me know in the comments.
Lets talk about the actual post now: ROUTINE:
So, few years ago, like maybe 6 or 7 years ago when my daughter first started to go to school, I had a quiet simple normal life but when she started growing up and her school burden started to grow with her too obviously, and I have started to observe my life going in the same way everyday without a break or time to even breath. It's the same schedule everyday, wake them up, refresh them, pack their lunches, books, send them to school and when they come back, give them lunch, make them study for some time and then send them to special classes and then go back to cook snacks and dinner. I used to exhausted.
And I started to complain: Initially, used to be okay with that but day after day, I grew frustrated about my routine boring life and I thought I was stuck in an infinity loop. I started to complain to my husband saying I hate doing this repeatedly again and again.
My husband being a nice guy offered to take on vacations but I also know our financial situation and always used to refuse. But I never stopped to think about "how boring and routine my life has become" .. I was craving for a change and used to think a lot about a change in life, but as I was not positive about it or I don't know why, the energy I put out in universe was been in a negative way rather being hopeful...
And when the realization hit me like a brick:
I was expecting a change to break my routine and my routine was literally broke in 2020 when the world was hit severely with Corona. Some people lost their jobs, some lost their houses and some even lost their lives. In India, it has become so intense that they imposed a lockdown for straight 2 months. As you guys know, we were not even allowed to step outside of our houses to even buy normal everyday stuff like milk or veggies.
It was then, the realization suddenly hit me that "whatever life I was living, was already PERFECT. Life could be always worse, so enjoy each and every moment that you are living right now, it might seem like an intense unbreakable routine, but it always could get worse"
With that new realization, i changed my mentality and started living my life in a new way and I live just one day at a time now and stopped complaining. I would Gladly go back to my routine from a couple of years ago any chance I get now.
I'm going to make another article about how i have made changes in my life after this Covid situation and how I cope with always be staying inside the house and what habits I learned so that I would not complain more about my life as it can always get worse...
All in all, always be thankful for what you already have than complain about what you could have had...

I also sometimes complained about the routine, about having to take my son to activities after class, the basketball game, going to and from school, the traffic. And it seems incredible that now we miss all that. Like you, now I try to live one day at a time and give thanks for each new day.
