Have you ever woken up and thought about how boring your life is because today is going to be just like yesterday, which is going to be just like tomorrow? It's called the Groundhog Day effect. For me, Groundhog Days are usually on Mondays. I start the day just going through the motions. But usually, at some point, I remember this quote and how blessed I am to be having a "boring" day:
I love that quote. It captures the gut-wrenching feeling you have on those days when everything is going wrong and you're yearning for a Groundhog Day.
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are... Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect Tomorrow... One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in my pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.
--Mary Jean Iron
So let's try to find the good in Groundhog Days, because they're Normal Days. Look for those moments when you can show your husband that he's your hero, make your child giggle like the ones you see on YouTube, or scratch that itch your dog has had for weeks.
