My Friends

As I was going to bed the other night I realized a thing or two.

1. I do indeed have a bed time routine. I have fought this idea for a long time. I used to think that if I ever developed a bedtime routine it would be the first sign of old age. It would signify that I have given up on all spontaneity and now all there is left for me to do is die. Well, I have a routine and strangely I just feel wiser and just more acclimated to living on Earth. Having a bedtime routine is nothing to fight my friends.

2. I am not the only one I have to put to bed at night. I carry four objects around in my pocket at all times. My phone, my ipod, my wallet, and my keys. My phone and ipod I have decided are basically a few arms and legs away from being actual human beings. I have to put them to sleep in order so that when the sun rises they will be recharged and ready to take on another day. Wait, this is exactly what I do. I set my phone on its little charger and plug my ipod in. I then nestle in under my covers and I too begin the recharging process. One time I even tried telling my phone and ipod goodnight. I just felt funny. Needless to say that was just a one time thing.

3. Showering is a lost art that I feel more need to appreciate. For this very reason. So let me explain. Please. Let me… It hit me while I was laying in bed the other night that shower time is the only no technology time I have in the day. I do not watch t.v. in the shower. I do not use my phone, ipod, coffee maker, etc… I do not have to worry about impressing anyone. I do not have to worry about running into anyone I know. The shower, friends. Is a beautiful time in your day. You are alone with your thoughts and no outside distractions. I encourage you to begin to use your shower time to plan out your life. Kids could think about what they wanted to be when they grow up. Adults can think about starting a business or their relationship with Jesus or any of the other important things in life.

Hope all is well with everybody. I am going to try to start blogging again. I miss it.

    Just like Jalontae, the wise-beyond-his-years Portland first grader, said, “Every day when I get in the bath, it’s like, the same. Every time I get in I’m like, ‘This is the same.'”

    Jalontae knew how to properly use his shower time: musing about the philosophical implications of the daily time.
