Life is a funny thing. We find ourselves doing mundane things day in day out, same ole routine. Ever notice how you leave the house at the same time every day or go to bed at the same time. You feed the dogs or cats at the same time, and they come to know this routine and will let you know if you’re so much as one minute late. But all the clichés are true; you really should stop and smell the roses. Change it up a bit and do something different. Simple changes can make for a great recipe of life. If your spouse does all the cooking, surprise him or her with a personalized, home-cooked meal from you. If you’re new to cooking, check out StartCooking.com This site instructs you, step by step, through the cooking process. If you travel the same way to work every day, go a different route. Better yet, take the alternate road on the way home so you’re not late for work. When we fall into a set routine, we tend to forget that life is meant to be enjoyed and lived. Start today and give life a twist. Do something spontaneous and unexpected. Treat yourself to something new. Remember, life is not about a job, a career, or what bills you need to pay. Life is about the stories you get to tell later.
