Just the same routine - wake up in the morning, make the bed, boil some water for a cup of hot chocolate,  take a bath, groom myself then off for work. 

All these have become a personal habit seven times a week. What's so exciting about that? Obviously, nothing at all. When one listens to the same song over and over again, eventually, it becomes pretty boring. It's the same thing as eating the same dish everyday. No matter how one likes the food, soon his taste buds would want something new. Is it time for another change? This question struck me for a minute then left me arguing with my own thoughts.
There may be no more excitement with daily routines and habits but still we are blessed with countless things that simply make everyday a great day to live.  
Maybe not yet. Not too soon.

I reasoned with a long list as follows.

I am blessed to wake up healthy and capable to go to work everyday; got a job that is exactly what I want to do; got some other extra work for more earning opportunities; my family and I are enjoying the best of health; though single I have real friends (near and far) whom I can rely on; despite working regularly, I still get the chance to attend to my other creative outlets such as blogging and the list goes on. 

There may be no more excitement with daily routines and habits but still we are blessed with countless things that simply make everyday a great day to live.

  1. That's true there are so many blessings a day brings. And about routine, it would be really nice to challenge oneself on how to make a day different from the other. Just to keep things sane.

  6. I agree. It's all about perspective. It's up to the person to make the most out of a seemingly routine existence. Parang Groundhog Day lang. :D

  7. I want to disagree with you when you said that listening to the song over and over again it will become boring. Good songs, good music even though they're being played over and over again, even a thousand times, they're still good songs to listen to, good music to appreciate. It is in the state of the mind of everyone that a thing makes it boring for it is viewed in its negative effect.

  8. same thing here, bro... a lot to be thank about to our Lord, that we still do the things we do, normally... it might be what we used to do everyday, but they are the most important ones. so, take care of your health and thank Him for the blessing of it and safety everyday. Yahweh bless.

  9. Every day is indeed a blessing. And when bad things strike, I'll always think that life is challenging. I love your optimistic views in life! Kudos! :D

  10. We are surrounded with so many blessings. The sad thing is that often people focus more on what they don't have that they don't realize and appreciate the wealth that they are enjoying.

  11. Routine may get monotonous and boring, but yes. We have to be grateful of everything we have. Sometimes, we tend to overlook the more important things because we get bored. Everyday is a blessing, indeed. :)

  12. Every day we should feel inspired. We should always be thankful, be happy and contented with any blessings that we received. Acceptance of the status of our life will also make us contented and happy.
