Up for the Downstroke ~ Cultivating Happiness

Doing the same thing everyday becomes monotonous quickly and creates dissatisfaction.

Creating new ways to do the routine things in life adds some spice and warms the heart.

Yesterday, while I made my breakfast, I played “Up for the Downstroke” by Parliament. Though I pan-scrambled my eggs the same way I do everyday, damn, if they didn’t taste better. I think it was all the hip shaking, sliding and gliding I did while I was making them. Now I have the weekend to practice my grooves before my kids are here to witness my new routine…shaking it!

Today (and everyday) I encourage you to find a new way to bring happiness into your life. After all, happiness is truly an inside job.

Now dance like no one is watching and get up for the downstroke, that’s an order!

  2. Ooh, interesting perspective. Shake it up, whether figuratively or literally. Hehe. A new way to look at gaining happiness. 🙂

    I think doing new things in general can be quite good to us, though we avoid it in favour of routine.

    To encourage people to take the road less travelled or to get out of their comfort zone, I wrote an article on the benefits of trying new things in our lives. Do give it a read here:
