|"It says MOOPS!" (Seinfeld fans get this lol)|
Happily I am a big believer of 'popping' the perceived 'bubble'.
I get ansty when some things stay the same or seemingly don't change.
Routine is one of those things. Granted, I kind of like some of my routines, I know what to expect, and feel comfort in that. Fine. Dandy. But then there are things I do or most of us do, because it's easy, or we've gotten used to it, and what's all the fuss about? But see, this is what starts nagging me. If I don't consider something in a different light, how will I ever know what is out there? As quite frankly, as it turns out - LOTS!!
Since I love examples, here's 3 ☺
1) I'm an avid reader, always have been. I tend to lean towards Mysteries, some fiction and yes some self help/health stuff. But for pure pleasure it's always been Mysteries - 'Who done it' sorts. Old world, and current, I enjoy it all. Over the years however I realized I was in a rut. I read the same types of authors (whom I love) but realized...gee there's a ba-zillion authors out there, maybe I should start asking for some other authors. And I did. What a treat!! An entire new world opened up to me when I started thinking outside of the box! In the past, I'd sort of dismiss some of the 'types' of authors or stories others talked about. "Oh those aren't for me", I'd pipe in. And well sure, some of them still don't do it for me. But I have to tell you...LOTS of them do! I feel like I hit the lottery with all these new authors! (anyone who reads gets this lol)
2) As you know..I partake in natural therapies. I've tried or experimented with all kinds of 'stuff'. I do my research and give it a go. For the most part I've been very happy with what I've found to work for me. Sure not EVERYTHING works for everyone..but thankfully there's so much out there to choose from - thinking out side of the box, again!
3) Do you ever drive somewhere a lot, maybe to work or someone's house...knowing which route works, probably in your sleep. And if you are like me, usually the easiest and fastest. Well I have recently started to take totally alternate routes to some of my normal destinations. I
have to laugh at how many streets I've never been down in my own general neighborhood! I've also branched out to other areas, finding parks I never knew existed, stores I have never seen not to mention restaurants. Take a detour now and then!
Living in a bubble for somethings doesn't make a big difference in your day to day, but when you feel bored or just that ho-hum, uninspired feeling - maybe it's time to you ask yourself, "Am I really enjoying all the magnificence that our world has to offer?"
We live in a abundant Universe. Start thinking outside of the 'bubble' and see what surprises and new horizons are out there - could lead to all sorts of new delights or adventures!
