Experiences or events from mundane life can serve as a type of insight if you learn something from them. I like to sometimes create new insights from my mundane experiences.
Today I was standing in a long and slow Starbucks line. It was a good time to practice patience.
As I was leaving with my drink, I thought to myself in a cheerful way, “life is silly.” It’s just pretty ridiculous what we spend a lot of our time doing.
I may begin making my own iced coffee this summer. A Starbucks line is a good lesson in patience. But I also want to think about how I really want to spend my time and energy.
I think I’d rather be walking outdoors under the beautiful trees, or camping and hiking. Or reading a delightful book at home.
I feel very fortunate that I have the freedom to decide how I want to spend my time and energy. Silly things like Starbucks lines and drinks are okay, as long as I don’t take them too seriously.
