The seemingly mundane every day tasks we do are truly ones that affect every aspect of our lives and well being. Sometimes we don’t even notice; until we STOP to actually notice.
The seemingly mundane things that we do are the very things that nurture us and the ones we love and bring us a sense of structure and purpose.
- The mundane is sometimes what truly matters:
- Making the bed,
- Preparing breakfast,
- Sweeping the floor,
- Instructing the kids,
- Folding the clothes,
- Picking up after the pup,
- A warm meal at night,
- Nightly bathing and routines,
- Packing the lunches,
- A strict bedtime to adhere to…
There is beauty in the what may seem like the mundane if we only stop to see it; if we only stop to appreciate it.
It takes a minute to actually slow down and see it and how it serves us and the ones we love.
When struggling with the mundane think on the things that matter most:
- Gratitude for waking,
- Good food for nourishment,
- A place to put our feet safely,
- Children to rear and coach,
- Clothing on our backs to wear,
- Pets to love unconditionally,
- Evening meals to connect with,
- Clean water to bathe,
- Nighttime routines to chat over,
- A place to rest and restore…
When we shift our headspace from seeing the mundane as an everyday representation of what matters most, we truly begin to live more intentionally and purposefully. Here is to the everyday!
