Monotony Won’t Cut It

The same old thing day in and day out.

Wearisome uniformity, lacking variety.

Sometimes we aren’t aware of the things we do that become a daily pattern, like an assembly line of actions and activities that spell “Boring” with a capital B. Sometimes we end up hitting the repeat button on what we do, what we eat, what we wear, how we perform, how we look, what we say, and how we approach a brand new day with the same old boring habits in tow. We occasionally do something different to break this apparent spell of monotony, but then find ourselves slipping back into the same old song, just on a different day. Sometimes we have been doing it for so long that we don’t even notice it. It’s akin to the dog forever chasing its tail. 

Get back to living
do the things you love
if you’re unable to do those things as you want
Modify, improvise, customize, and rise above.

Even the days change, whether we do or not. Sometimes you have to shake things up a bit and change seats with monotony. You didn’t come this far to only come this far. You haven’t lived until you actually do it.

  1. Oh my dear Warren bless you my friend. Sometimes the hardest move to contemplate is the best one to make. When you get tired of being sick and tired, that could be the best motivation to making positive and productive changes. Do not settle. Your life is way too important and valuable to do that my friend. 😍πŸ₯‚πŸ₯°πŸ’–πŸŒž

    Dearest Kym, a very big hug and the greatest apology for lagging behind in so many gorgeous posts of yours. I have been desperately trying to write articles, stories and applying for the Fellowship program in the USA. And very busy being suspected by the idiot of my husband who has left no stone unturned in tormenting me and my daughter. I am going to dump him. You ,Bella , Elvira and Luisa have been angels. All I can say is your posts are my strength dearest sister friend. Keep writing. ❀❀❀😊😊

  3. Oh my dear Aparna, don’t you worry about it. You seem to have a lot on your plate my friend. You said you were writing articles huh? Is it for a newspaper or magazine or online journal? Sounds wonderful. I hope the publication is paying you nicely for your articles. πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘

    So excited to hear about the Fellowship program you are applying for. What type of Fellowship is it? I do hope you get it because it sounds like a wonderful opportunity for hands-on learning. Plus, it will give you a window of opportunity to do a little traveling and to take a break from the hustle and bustle of your daily life.

    My dear, I empathize with the abuse in your current situation. It’s sad and infuriating. Not only that, the mental cruelty is sickening. So sorry you have to go through that. In the meantime, continue to focus on your goals and make them happen. Do not give someone else permission to treat you or your daughter any other way besides being a lady! Sending you plenty of love, hugs and smooches my sister girlfriend. πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ€©πŸ’πŸ˜˜ Take care of yourself and your daughter. πŸ₯° She especially doesn’t deserve this type of treatment at such a young age. SMH 😑


  4. There you go Brian. There is a lot of reevaluation that we may need to undergo, but I am one of those individuals who gets on their own nerves as monotony tries to cave in on me! UGH! 😝 Don’t you just hate when that happens? 😜🌺🀩 Cheers my friend. πŸ₯‚

  8. I happily do the mundane tasks but I constantly ask my self “Does this need to be done every day? or at all?” I’ve managed to cut down on the mundane to make more room for creativity. I guess that’s the advice in your beautiful poem. A wonderful post, dear Kym. πŸ’πŸ₯°
