Life

What’s It All About??

 

I’m in a thoughtful mood today. I speak to other Mums and we all bemoan the fact that life is so mundane. Get up, breakfast, school run, housework, job, play taxi, errands, grocery shopping, make dinner, clean kitchen, shower/bath, go to bed …just for it to start all over again tomorrow.
What for? Is there a point to all of this?
I have always thought that housework is a boring thankless job that is neverending. Maybe there is no point to this…maybe there is. It is something that is on my mind a lot.

I learned a long time ago that real joy comes from experiences and other people. Feeling connecting, feeling understood – these are the things that make us happy.
So I try, as much as possible, to be mindful.
By this I mean that I live in the moment and try to look for the good that I have in my life already.

No one really knows the truth about life and how we arrived, where we are going. My brain hurts when I  try to imagine the end of the Universe – what is it? Where does it end? It can’t just stop – there must be something there..but my little brain just cannot fathom infinity..
So for now, I love each day, tell people I love them, compliment others..I have taken to complimenting strangers when I think they look good…(I am sure some people think I am either a bit mad or a lesbian or both!!)

I console myself by thinking we are all in this together…make new friends, try new things, push fears out the way…the end result is the same for all of us so just go for it. Have fun in life, learn and grow and push out of your comfort zone as often as you can.

Be adventurous and see where it takes you. Who knows – you may even find the answer to it all….(and if you do – please let me know!!)
