There is Beauty in the Routine. Mon, Mar 12, 2018
After being in a relationship for 8 years, some things begin to repeat themselves. For example, if my wife and I go to a beach somewhere, I know that Shannon will order some carnitas tacos, where I will order the fish tacos. I know that we will go on walks on the beach every evening and watch at least one sunset there. I also realize that I will be driving at least 80% of the way, so I must plan accordingly. A younger Bryan would think that these little, repetitive, things would make life boring and redundant, but I have learned differently.
I have found that these repetitive moments, are some of the best memories that I have. I cherish the routine that we have created together. I learned that even though a routine can get boring, there is still moments within it that can bring you pleasure. Celebrate your routines and learn to value these moments, rather than just going through the motions.
