Not all changes are easily noticed.
- Getting a haircut or a new hairdo… usually noticed.
- Wearing a tuxedo instead of my more authentic blue jeans… usually noticed.
- A freshly mown lawn… usually noticed.
- Three extra pounds… maybe noticed.
- Completing my chore list each day. Sometimes it makes no difference in my world.
- Completing the chore list three-days-in-a-row… somewhat noteworthy.
The most important things in life can rarely be changed in one day. (And if they are, you probably shouldn’t trust the change as permanent.)
Lifestyle changes… the important ones… take time. They need to be tested. They need to become established. They need to be seasoned by the fires of future experiences.
Changes can be a-one-and-done… possibly a welcomed relief, but of little consequence.
A small respite is wonderful, but…
Be in it for the long-haul.
Written for The Daily Post: Observe. I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My chosen topics are as follows: (Monday) Life in Retirement; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
