Shift a habit or two.

Often, we do things by rote. We eat the same thing for breakfast, drive the same route to work, watch the same TV shows or movie genres, rely on the same sources for news. It’s easy, it works, and we don’t have to think too much.

However, it can be useful and often enjoyable to mix things up a bit. Trying a food outside of our of normal preferences, listening to a different musical genre, taking up a new hobby—getting out of our comfort zones a bit can teach us about ourselves and broaden our experience. We may even discover new favorite things.

Today’s message offers me the opportunity to renew myself by doing something, anything differently. Expanding my routines increases my opportunities for unexpected joy.

Please reflect and share. What new thing are you willing to try?
