We Do It Everyday!

Routine.  Its like mold.  I think I've found a way to get rid of it, but it always returns! What’s routine to me?  Laundry, making the bed, cleaning the bathroom.  How about you?  Are your chores filled with snores?  Feeling up for a challenge, this week, I'm reframing one of my most mundane tasks and changing the picture in my mind.  It takes me back to when I was 10 years old and my sister and I shared lawn mowing duty. The lawn became a giant’s head, and she and I, barbers fashioning a new hairdo!  What will I choose and how will I wake up my silly side and whistle more while I work!


  • Laundry, in particular folding and putting away.


  • Pay attention. Respect the basket of laundry as if it were a basket of chocolate.

  • Laugh.  Use the laundry as a prompt and create a story. Outlandish!  Preposterous!

  • Act as if this is exactly where I want to be.  Dinner out?  Rain check, please!

  • Yay, its done!


  • Up for the challenge too?
