Adventure over Drudgery

As she began to love herself, life became less about drudgery and more about adventure. - Queenisms™

As she began to love herself, life became less about drudgery and more about adventure. – Queenisms™

Oh, for a life without drudgery. We’re pretty sure that doesn’t exist. But that’s no excuse for getting bogged down in the feeling that everything is drudgery. When we practice loving ourselves, we see our lives through a different lens. That doesn’t mean someone else does the laundry, feeds the family, pays the bill, cleans the cat box or whatever drudgery means to you. It simply means that when we love ourselves we can see that doing those things makes our lives better. We love taking care of our own needs (and sometimes of those we love) so that we have clean clothes, food, a place to live that doesn’t smell and, well, you get the idea. Every adventure has pieces that are dull but must be done. Climb Mt. Everest but first you’ll need to buy your backpack, fill it with supplies, make travel plans, train for the journey and make arrangements for your everyday responsibilities to be handled in your absence. Drudgery? Yes. Adventure? Yes. But if climbing mountains is what you love and you love yourself enough to prepare, then there is probably more adventure than drudgery. Now most of us will never climb a mountain. But some of us will go back to school, travel to far away places, learn a new skill, change a habit or some other adventure. But we’ll only do those things if we believe we are worthy of the effort – if we learn to love ourselves. Life’s adventure has both drudgery and exhilaration – and both necessarily exist for all of us.
