Auto pilot

reverb 13 - Day 10.

Living life on auto-pilot can feel disorienting and dull. How did you cultivate a life worth loving during 2013?
How can you turn off your auto-pilot button in 2014?
I was only talking to Jay last week about how sometimes I just feel like a shell going through motions. You know - get up, make lunches, breakfast, tidy up, make beds, go to work, come home, make dinner, help with homework, get everyone showered and tucked into bed, go to bed and start again. Reminds me of Katy Perry's song lyrics in Firework:

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind

I do feel on auto pilot often, to switch back into a life worth loving I invite my friend 'Gratitude' in. I take a moment to be thankful for the routine of my life, there is nothing wrong with dull if you can see the value in it. We are all well and going about life, we are alive, there are gorgeous things happening in our routine, so I need to acknowledge them. Switch off auto pilot and breathe in the moment. Stop and listen to the music.

You just gotta ignite the light
and let it shine
