My life was messed up last month. And I complained about lots of undone stuffs.
Well, I can now proudly say that the dark age is finally over and daylight has come back to shine on this land once again. Once a shadowed era will soon be gone and there will rise a new empire that will change the history of mankind once and for all.
Kidding. Inspired by Prince of Persia. It was really a good movie.
But things are certainly changing. I’ve actually completed most of the things I complained. Here’s the list of completed things.
- I’ve thrown away all the expired food in my drawer.
- I’ve cleaned my room
- I’ve cleaned the bathroom
- I’ve imported all the pictures and posted most of them
- I’ve backed-up my computer
- I’ve signed-up for the gym (for 30 days) and started my marathon training
I have even started to work on a personal project (no, not freelance, it’s something for myself) which I’m very excited about. I will announce what is it in time when things become more concrete.
Okay you might start asking, “how bout the sink?”
Yes the sink is finally unclogged with the help from my house owner. And also a big thank you to Kevin who actually cleaned the sink so thoroughly now it looks like a brand new mirror.
However, unclogging the sink wasn’t the first thing done. In fact, it was the last thing done.
Well, I guess many of you were right. A clogged sink has nothing to do with how I live my life.
I’m sorry sink I’ve put all the blame on you, it was all my fault. Don’t hate me please, I will use you more often now.
So if it’s not about unclogging the sink, what have I done to unclog my life?
Breaking the comfort zone.
It all started one day when I told myself enough is enough. I forced myself to get out of the room and headed to a nearby community park to have a jog, even though I knew I have less than 20 mins to jog before the sun sets.
It was my first time being at the park. By the time I reached there, it was already 7PM. Trying to catch every single sunlight still available, I ran non-stop for the next 20 mins.
During that short run, I’ve actually seen different people, different sceneries and I almost felt like I was breathing different air. I felt good.
Since then, things started to change and I’ve slowly crossed out items on my list one by one. And not forgetting to mention that exercise and proper rest increase energy level.
Isn’t it our life is the same? We slowly build our comfort zone by doing the same thing over and over again. Sooner or later, we will be bored of what we are doing and eventually life will stop flowing.
When that happens, take some time off and try to do something outside of the comfort zone.
You might see things differently and who knows that would be just the needed force to push through the clogged pipe.
P/S: One more thing, if you ever encounter clogged pipe in the future, and if you tried using drain cleaning solution, plunger or hot water and still not working, try getting a spiral pipe cleaning rod and stick it all the way down and most probably, your problem will be gone.
