Monday morning. Work. Workout. Dinner. Chill. Sleep.
The pessimist sees monotony. The optimist sees practice.
Routine can feel suffocating (especially if you’re young & restless). This frustrates the hell out of me sometimes.
Other times, I view it as an opportunity. Opportunity to practice. Work/life balance, even when it seems to fall into a single-channel output, is essentially accruing wisdom for the elder portion of adulthood (mentally & spiritually, anyway; financially, my generation may have to fall back on the ‘barter’ system).
Get good at it now, so it’s second-nature later. That way you can truly enjoy those parts that may have otherwise been lost on the inexperience of youth.
Above that: never let your dreams die. They may alter, wax, wane, drip, and endlessly fluctuate…but don’t let your Young Self be overcome by your Old Self. Let your inner child carry you through the world — even if only as a memory that you once existed as a tiny, unassuming version of yourself.
Kids possess the secret of life, and part of that secret is simply inherent to being a kid. Frame your reality with this knowledge and watch possibilities bloom & unfold at your fingertips.
It’s probably the happiest way to conduct a life; certainly the most fun.
