As Americans we have certain rules and we think that the rest of the world sees life the same way we do. For example, when we speak of breakfast we think of bacon, eggs, pancakes, toast, sausage, cereal, milk and maybe fruit. Well other countries consider their breakfast as their main meal of the day. They make it their biggest and heartiest meal. Well that makes more sense to me because we haven’t eaten all night long and we have the work of the long day ahead of us and we will need maximum energy.
Whether it makes sense or not it doesn’t really matter. Rules are made to keep us in order. Sometimes we feel a little rebellious and we want to spread our wings and change things up. We live in the land of the free and home of the brave. We are allowed to change things up. We get very used to our little routines and ways of doing things. We close ourselves up in our little bubbles and we actually freely give away our freedom. Our routines sometimes stand in the way of growth.
Sometimes we need to either turn our world upside down or have it turned for us. Recently I was in the hospital and they came around at different intervals to check vitals. They came in around 2 am to check my blood pressuread it was really low. So their solution was to lower the head of my bed and raise the foot of the bed. I literally felt like they turned me upside down. So three hours later they checked my bp again and it was normal. Success!! So that’s what it took to fix my problem. So I am thinking that maybe that concept might apply to life in general. Think about it.
I have decided to use my freedom to make choices that make me happy (within the confines of the law of course). Maybe today I will stretch my rights and eat ice cream for breakfast. It’s time to pop my self proclaimed bubble and see things with new eyes. Time to open up my mind and see what I can find. And to think, it all started with breakfast.
