“Same shit different day!” is an unfortunate mantra.
One finding greater usefulness during COVID where its harder to tell one day from the next.
There’s actually a bit of wisdom in there that shows you a way out of the monotony you may otherwise be feeling.
The wisdom is the idea of same, but different. You may be doing things that seem the same. But today is a different day. You haven’t done them today yet.
In fact, the you in this moment isn’t the you of yesterday.
You have been refined by the lessons of yesterday and show up differently now.
Even if it’s the same shit, it isn’t the same you doing the same shit. It’s a wiser you.
I’ve had experiences where I emerged with greater appreciation for nature, people, what I already have. None of those things changed as much as I did.
I find more often than not, that when things around me seem “stuck”, in a rut, so to speak. The issue isn’t somewhere on the outside.
It’s in my forgetting to appreciate how much newness is blooming in this moment.
