I know you aren’t supposed to talk about politics, money or religion, but that’s not what this post is about.
I was brought up without a pinnacle to believe in, I was brought up to believe in myself and the good in others – I suppose. But, I did go to a Christian school and was made to go to church service every Tuesday, to sing the hymns every day of the week and listen to a parable every Thursday. So, as you presume, I know Jesus’ story front, back, left ways and right ways.
I know about Lent, every single year – the Monday before Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Mardis Gras – we would sit around and in turn tell the class what we were giving up for Lent. Even at a young age I thought it was trite, like how I roll my eyes now at the phrase ‘new year, new me’.
But the last few months, living across the street from my university has made me lazy. I get up at twenty past eight, go to breakfast and if I’m lucky I squeeze in a shower. In more ways than one can you describe me as messy – over the past two months I tidied my room twice; once was because my boyfriend begged me and the other was so it was tidy on my return.
So, the day before Easter Sunday how did I become so aware of my vegetable nature? Well, a good old Morning Routine video of course. Someone else’s perfect life can always inspire another (or make them incredibly jealous). So yeah, I thought I’d better share it with you, as it’s known you are more likely to do something if you write it down, say it out loud – or even better – tell someone about it.
So here it is,
- Over the next two weeks of the holiday I’m pushing my morning alarm back to seven
- I’m going to try and read more (I have a shelf full back in my flat at uni and I have hardly touch the collection)
- I’m going to play my ukulele more (God forbid how much my parents spent on my birthday present, I need to bloody use it!)
- Drink more water
- I’m gonna try and get back into yoga
Now, this seems a lot but in all I need to spend twenty minutes a day on my ukulele, I only have to do ten minutes of yoga, drinking and sleeping are necessities of life and as dull as some of you may think reading is, it’s how I cut loose. And I have to cut loose once in a while.
Until I feel inspired to write again,
Have a great day lovelies.
