If You Can’t Change the Job, Change Your Viewpoint…

Quotes and Notes #315, September 15

If you move a bit one way or the other, the view changes.

If you move a bit one way or the other, the view changes.

“Why not make a daily pleasure out of a daily necessity.”—Peter Mayle—

Now, there’s an idea. It’s been my job to wash the dinner dishes since I was a child. I always looked at the job as drudgery. Things changed, though, over the years, and now I look at the time spent washing dishes as a free time for meditation and reflection.

What daily chores or rituals do you see as burdens? Try approaching them with a different viewpoint. It certainly won’t hurt anything.

And it never hurts to share a smile
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

    You made my day. I remember how I hated getting up the dog hair my Jeannie shed. She died suddenly and I was a way from home. When I came back, I found, you guessed it Jeannie hair everywhere. I lovingly scooped up every wisp. You can imagine that I did it with a very different feeling.
