How many times throughout the day do you view something as a chore?
You can include the common ones like doing the washing, cleaning your room, going shopping... But how about your meditation practice? Or going to the gym? Or preparing homemade meals? Or finishing off that piece of work?
It's easy to forget that most of the things that we fill our day with, most of the habits and routines we partake in - we choose to do them. Sure, they may slip into autopilot mode sometimes. But at some point down the line, we made the conscious decision to make time for that activity.
If we're not careful, it's easy to slip into that chore mindset - that we 'have' to do this, and 'have' to do that.
But what if we were able to step away from that line of thinking? What if we were able to be more present in everything that we do, to truly see those things for what they are? To embrace the things that we can't change? And to let go of the habits that are not serving us in order to make more room for the things that do?
