Well folks, it looks like its going to be an Early Spring! YAAAAAYY!! YES!! Hallelujah! This is what I will be anxiously waiting for, sunny days, flowers blooming, warm weather, taking walks around our gorgeous lake..will it REALLY come early this year? Who knows..probably not, but I really hate the winter, all the ice and snow and being cooped up inside going stir crazy. I am sick of it.
So this morning, good old "Staten Island Chuck" New York City's official groundhog didn't see his shadow which means Spring will come early.
I would like to dedicate this post not just to the day but to the movie, Groundhog Day. I love Bill Murray so much and have seen almost all his movies. It is funny how as a little girl in the 80s I had a crush on these "older" gentlemen like Bruce Willis and Bill Murray. I think its because I loved their comedy and their charm so much. Age didn't matter! Haha
The part I love so much about that movie is that it shows how incredibly insane and monotonous day to day life can become. In the movie, he starts to literally re-live the same day over and over again. I love the part where he jumps into the tub with the toaster that is plugged in!! So funny.
Doesn't life feel that way to most of us, sometimes? I know that now that I in my 30s and I live in the scary cubicle world day in and day out, I sometimes feel like I am living in that movie too. Don't get me wrong, as I have stated over and over before, I am VERY GRATEFUL and THANK GOD for my job and all of my blessings. I am just expressing how soul crushing it can be to sit in a box, day after day, going through thousands of documents and typing your life away. When you get into a routine, it can be very healthy to give yourself stability and structure. It can also drive you into a rut where you feel like a robot, mindlessly repeating the same tasks over and over at nauseum!
So to all of you out there going through your daily routines in this work-a-day world, if you feel like you are re-living the same day over and over I understand! Break out of the ordinary and hum-drum and make today a little different or more interesting for yourself. Treat yourself to something special. And remember Spring is just around the corner (yeah right!)
