During this Slice of Life challenge, I’ve added reading blogs and writing to my morning routine. It’s only because I don’t have those long morning commutes that I’ve been able to do this. But I still have work to do so I generally limit myself to reading and commenting on just three posts before I write or finish my own. Each day though, I find myself saying, just one more. I’m going to read one more post. And sometimes I do; sometimes I read even more than that. Usually I look at the time and I move on.
It’s been such a wonderful way to start the day–getting glimpses into people’s lives, reading about places across the country and the globe. I’ve seen the many ways we’ve had similar experiences whether we live in the same city or across the ocean and the ways in which even just a state away can feel like a foreign land. With just one week left of the challenge, I’m already starting to feel the loss of not having this morning ritual. Luckily spring break is around the corner and I’ll be able to read just one more for the last few days.
