“I hate doing laundry!”
That used to be my standard response whenever my mom talked about it. I loathed it so much that I would do anything to escape from doing it! But how can I have fresh clothes if I don’t do my laundry?! I have no other choice. Do I? Nothing that I knew of 😀
Well, I realized the best thing to do to not hate doing it is to stop hating it! Sounds silly doesn’t it? But it is not. I hated it because it was monotonous. There was nothing creative about laundry.
But what’s the point in grumbling and doing a poor job when you have no way out? Being grumpy would only spoil our own day. Right?
So I decided to change it. I imagined myself as a laundry expert! I played music, danced my way while operating the machine and while hanging and clipping them on the line under the hot sun I made sure they looked beautiful. Yes, all pants in one line, shirts in the other.. In the order of color, size and I used matching hangers and clips to hang them! 😀
It wasn’t boring and monotonous anymore. It was fun, colorful and creative! Most importantly I regarded myself as the expert! 😀
This is not just about laundry. Of course not!
I understood one thing from doing laundry :
If you can’t change something and if you have no other choice but do it; it is better to stop hating it!
If you hate your job, cooking food, doing your maths assignment or any other task; then Don’t do it the way you usually do! You can’t change the task, but you can always change the way you perceive it.
I Hated It. But Not Anymore 🙂
