Breaking the routine

Don't you feel some times that days just pass by without something different happening?That at the end of the month you won't even remember the half of them?The last couple of days I was feeling like that.At the end of each day I usually make the day's review.Nothing special happened to me.Of corse you can't blame yourself for that.It's on your hands up to a point but it also has to do with luck.So,let me rephrase it.I didn't do anything special.
It's a fact that I'm a procrastinator.My englished teacher named my problem some years ago.Of corse it's not such an important problem when there are people who have cancer or aids,I can live with that.But all these are excuses I use to persuade myself not to feel guilty.My attention is absorbed by many unuseful things during the day.As a result,I end up with tons of homework I haven't done,mourning my lost hours I could reclaim doing things for myself.It's true,I don't take care of myself.I don't even sleep well.
I'm lucky to have a wonderful sister though.She's three years younger than me but she's one of the most positive and powerful people I know.I really admire her.Well,when I told her nothing special happenes these days,she suggested me something.So,this morning we got up earlier for school,dressed up and went to the nearest bakery and bought breakfast.Then we went to eat it to the park.You know what they say.You can see how good a day is gonna be,from the morning.Well,it really made my day.I was in a really good mood all day long.Sometimes just changing a small detail of your daily routine,can have a great impact on your mood.
I just needed to share this with you,just to remind you that it's in our hands to make the difference in our lifes.So,why don't you do something different tomorrow?You can try a different flavor of coffee,listen to the music on your way to work/school,or go for a walk to a place you don't usually do.Just do something.Something extraordinary.

That was a lovely post! It's true what you're saying, it's only up to us to change our lives or be happy.. I've done the "breakfast extremely early in the morning" a couple of times in my life, and I remember well each one of them, it felt really special indeed, although you wouldn't think it's such a big deal, it breaks the routine of your life.

I love this post ! by the way nice to meet you! I love to randomly click on a blog that the title catches my attention and I'm glad I found yours. What a great idea. Routine is the beginning of becoming old , and I want to keep a young heart always. I read your bio. We have alot in common except I am much "older" physically, that is ! I am an artist-introspective clown ! Early mornings are the best ! although I miss alot of them-maybe that's why they are so special !

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! :D

That's great that you have such a wonderful sister :) You're absolutely right, changing up your routine and starting out the morning in a good mood definitely has a positive impact on the rest of your day. I should definitely try that. And gorgeous pictures!

Oh, I love this post, great story about you and your sister. :) I'm a terrible procrastinator too, so I really make an effort to do something useful/different every day. I don't always succeed, but you do get points for trying, right?

My life is a mess,
thank you for this really cool idea..
Now every morning before school I'll try to do something different, that will change my day for the better...
As you see, we are both students so I totally understand what you're talking about...
Excellent blog, good job!
Bye bye!

Είμαι εντυπωσιασμένος, πρέπει να πω. Πραγματικά πολλές φορές δεν μπορώ να αντιμετωπίσετε ένα blog που είναι κάθε εκπαιδευτικό και διασκεδαστικό, και επιτρέψτε μου να σας ενημερώσω, έχετε χτυπήσει το καρφί στο κεφάλι. Ιδέα σας είναι εξαιρετική? Η δυσκολία είναι ένα πράγμα που δεν επαρκούν οι άνθρωποι μιλούν για έξυπνα. Είμαι πολύ ευτυχισμένος που σκόνταψα σε όλο αυτό το αναζητήσουν μου για κάτι σχετικά με αυτό.
