What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did really mattered?
~Bill Murray – Groundhog Day
Everyday this week I woke up with one question…
What day of the week is it?
Over the course of the past 2 months, my routine has become the same – I get up, shower, feed the cats, make coffee, have breakfast, watch 30 minutes of the news, and then go upstairs and start working. Through out each day, the cats appear with the main objective of irritating me by walking on my laptop, bringing me “gifts”, snoring, and picking fights with each other. Sound familiar?
I spoke to a colleague and mentioned that I’m starting to feel like every day is groundhog day. HIs question to me…
Do you wake up every morning, stare at the ceiling, and listen to your alarm go off to the song “I Got You Babe”?
But his question got me thinking about how this current pandemic has turned each of our own lives into a personal version of Groundhog Day. So I decided to re-watch the movie and assembled some life lessons:
It’s always a good time to ask what you want out of life.
Are you playing a starring role in your own movie – or are you an extra watching the scenes unfold as a spectator in your own life? Life is too short to be passive.
Happiness can be found in the very ordinary activities of life.
How often do you gripe and grumble but not change anything? If you want things to change, you have to be willing to change!
Different can be good.
How would you like your life to look? Rather than seeing this situation as a curse, start enjoying the freedom of doing things differently.
And you need people in life.
Who are in the people in your life right now and why? Do these people make you feel good by supporting you and challenging you to be the best that you can be? Or do these people take your time and energy and make you feel like crap?
Let’s face it, at one point or another we have all been trapped in a situation where no matter what we did, we couldn’t remove ourselves from the endless uninspiring cycle. Dwelling on the situation and blaming everyone and everything doesn’t solve the problem. At some point you have to put on your big boy/girl pants and take one small step forward like Bill Murray does in the movie Groundhog Day. For me, this week, I realized that I needed more support with expanding and growing my on-line business, so I hired a business mentor that will assist me in stepping outside of the box.
In the past several months, what has been your biggest Groundhog Day moment?
What step(s) are you taking to be the star in your own movie?
Are you looking to connect to supportive people? If so, join the Soul’s Calling Circle this summer and surround yourself with like-minded supportive people.
With Love and Gratitude,
