The current siutation with COVID-19 globally serves to remind us of how wonderful it is to simply wake up. We may feel our life is boring and from that conclude that we’ve no fun in our life. The same old monotonous things happen each and every day. Alarm goes off, get up, wash, eat breakfast, go to work, come home, eat dinner, watch TV/go for a walk and then it’s bed time again. Repeat the exact same thing for five days out of seven, 48 weeks out of 52, year in, year out. There is no excitement in that one could easily say. What I say is the fun is definitely there, but that we often don’t open our eyes, hearts and minds fully enough to notice the joy and excitement of our regular lives. Where to even start?

Well, first of all, let’s look at the very first part of this “boring” routine as an opportunity of another day. We wake up when the alarm goes off; let’s look at that act with our hearts, minds and eyes fully open.
