The term “routine life” sounds terrible, right? Well, I believe we need to look at this term and what it means a little closer. It means the normal, everyday things we do. If you were told you had cancer, would you want to get back to a normal, routine life? Sure you would. If you had a long-term health issue with your child, would you want to get back to a normal, routine life? Sure you would. Therefore, take an inventory today of your blessings and yes, you may be changing diapers, washing clothes, making sales calls or just simply doing the same thing you did last week.
I sell hotels, and today I am in Columbus, Ohio, where it is snowing. When I got here last night I thought, how many times have I traveled to a city to sell a hotel and do the same thing again. Well, last night I realized there will be a day, sooner rather than later, where this part of my life is over, and I won’t be able to do what I do for a living. Life seems to go by quicker than you think. If you are a young mother who is sleepy from being up last night or a young father searching for significance, as hard as it may seem, embrace these moments because they will not last. One day, you will long for and wish you had a normal, routine day. KT
