The word routine was born in 1676 according to Merriam-Webster.
We can thank the etymology of this word to the French. Specifically the Middle French, from the word route, meaning the traveled way.
Now, some of us have more routines than others.
There is no doubt about it, routines definitely help us streamline and accomplish the tasks that surround our day to day life.
But a break from the old routine of things…
Well, that can send ripples…
When I step outside I feel that anything can happen.
I can hear the subway’s echo as it enters the underground.
And if I’m lucky…
I’ll see pigeons flying in the sky.
