Finding Comfort in the Routine


In the past few weeks since school started I've often caught myself complaining about the monotony of my daily routine. My day's have become a blur of wake up, go to school, go to work, come home, do homework, pass out and repeat. Just yesterday I was telling someone how I felt like I was in the movie groundhog day. Little to nothing changes day to day, which has me counting down to the weekend as soon as I get to Monday.

On the other hand, just less than two months ago I was complaining because Daniel's military life allowed for no semblance of a routine at all. We were constantly up in the air about what we would be doing at this point, where we would be, how we would be making money and virtually unsure of every aspect of where our lives were going, but now we know.

I'm learning that everyday won't be extraordinary or surprising. We might not take any spontaneous trips, or celebrate anything special. But every morning before I get started on my normal routine, I get to wake up with Daniel in our tiny apartment and savor the few minutes of husband and kitten cuddles before were off. I'm able to find comfort in the day to day because its the littlest things that make everything else that much more exciting. So embrace the routine, because its your life, and its special.
