Changing it up a Bit

I have been lacking in inspiration and creativity these past couple of days.  I will blame it on my slight headache. I think it’s an inspiration-stealing, creativity-destroying headache.  Either that or life has become a bit too routine.  Unfortunately, that will take a bit more than Advil to cure.

It’s so easy to fall into the familiar — to make the same recipes for dinner, to walk the same path for exercise, to hang out with the same friends on Friday nights at the same, familiar hang-out spot.  And life seems fine and even great…until it’s time to write a blog post.  And then you realize that you went on that same date with your husband last time and that you made that same pot of soup two weeks in a row.  And suddenly life isn’t familiar; it’s a bad bit boring.

Back in the day, that meant it was time to go somewhere new for a vacation.  But I’m beginning to think that changing things up a bit during every-day life might be helpful too.  New exercise routines and paths will keep things interesting.  New food — even foods we’ve never tried before — will add a bit of excitement to the dinner-table.  And it never hurts to keep things new and exciting in a marriage.  I mean, when you’re dating, you always try new things together.  Why not when you’re married too?  🙂

This is going to take me a bit of time, but I think that I can add a bit of variety to each day.  Hmmm, this could be interesting!

  1. I hear ya! I am such a routine kind of person, it’s not even funny. I literally have to force myself to shake things up and be spontaneous once in a while. 😉

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Once I’m done school, we should totally get together and form a recipe swap (or at least discuss recipes and make something totally out of the ordinary 😀 ).

    Happy Tuesday!
