Wash, Rinse, Repeat ...

Wash, rinse, repeat. Has your life become a perpetual motion of repetitiveness? Have you decided to succumb to the mundane?

mun·dane /ˌmənˈdān/ adjective

1. lacking interest or excitement; dull. "seeking a way out of his mundane, humdrum existence"

2. of this earthly world rather than a heavenly or spiritual one. "the boundaries of the mundane world"

  • relating to or denoting the branch of astrology that deals with political, social, economic, and geophysical events and processes.

At various times in our lives, it would seem that time is just something that happens. We get up, shower, go to work, come home, make dinner, watch tv or do laundry or both, go to bed, repeat. Wash, rinse, repeat. We aren't even sure when it started. The boredom of everyday life just spiraled in, and now we have no clue how to change things. Wash. We are stuck. Rinse. We begin to accept that this is just the way life is meant to be. Repeat.

Breaking out or away from this black hole of ennui |än-ˈwē|, (learn more about ennui here) is difficult at best. As awful as boredom is, boredom becomes comfortable. This is why life so easily slides into the wash, rinse, repeat stage. The only way out is changing something. You can try small steps like taking a different route to work. However, that will hardly break you out. Breaking out of the mundane needs to be like a slap in the face.

Do something quick! Do something completely different. Wash. Go out on school night. Meet new people. Join a group of something you have been interested in but never took the initiative to try. Rinse. Take a day off from work and explore the world around you. Change does not happen to you. Repeat. You must make change happen. Repeat. Change. Repeat.
