What does one do when where they are is no longer fulfilling, satisfying or even content?
What does one do when reminding themselves that “a means to an end” is not enough to make it through the day?
What do you do when you would rather be doing something else?
These questions have been floating around in my head. They crop up every year or so. I get dissatisfied with my daily routine. A routine that seems to have gone on forever.
Right now I would rather be doing a myriad of other things.
I would rather be…
- Creating Art (drawing, painting, knitting, sewing… any kind of art)
- Gardening (even with my allergies)
Really anything other than my current routine.
At the same time I value my routine. When I am ill, my routine is the only reason anything gets done. When I am angry or frustrated, my routine is the only reason I can stay calm and move on and do not do anything rash.
It is a blessing and a curse, a daily routine.
You dislike it when you have to follow it, and you miss it when you cannot follow it.
