Right before the new year--when I was figuring out how I was going to get the new year off to a good start--I had a revelation: I dislike the word routine. It sounds so unimaginative and choreful. What I do like is the word ritual (no doubt that is the Catholic in me).
Ritual makes things sound so much more important and meaningful. Rituals are ceremonial. Rituals matter.
Changing the word routine to ritual on my daily to-do list has transformed my attitude toward those tasks completely. Now I am now ready and even eager to get to them, and the feeling of accomplishment after they are done is almost like a sacrament.
