Quotidian – Wordplay Wednesday™ 11/15/17

Same-O-Same-O! But What If …? 

Need to get the hum humming in your ho-hum day? Identify those aspects that make life boring and “routine.” Flex your mindful muscles, and get off the same old carousel! 

It’s nearly time for a New Year. Look ahead … start now with new life experiences and retire the …

QUOTIDIAN (kwō tidʹe ɘn) adj. – 1) daily, recurring every day; 2) everyday, usual or ordinary; –n. anything, esp. a fever, that recurs daily. [WW #138]

From the tip of your head—same old quotidian hairstyle you’ve had for a decade, to the tip of your pointy-toed shoes—find a new experience in an excursion where you can walk, ride, or mindfully float away from quotidian habits.

Adventure should always be a part of life. Yes, at any age. Even if it’s all in your mind …

Our memories and imaginations are a wonderful thing. Exercise your right to escape the quotidian banalities of your day. Take a quixotic stroll down Memory Lane, back to some good ol’ days; or propel yourself into a fantasy of exotic adventures, all without leaving your chair, if need be.

We’re told it isn’t healthy to agonize over the “what-ifs” of life, as they apply to missed opportunities. I was recently reminded that looking forward with positive what-ifs for the future, can thrust you out of your quotidian present, to imagine the what-ifs of tomorrow. Where might you find new, better opportunities? (Take a bow, Ron, for that imaginative response to my lame lament.)

Word Challenge: QUOTIDIAN. Yep, it’s time to start looking backwards and forwards as you update, upgrade, and uplift your life. Dispose of the quotidian as you fit what-ifs into your week of contemplative writings.

Write first for yourself … only then can you write for others. (L.Rochelle)
