Yes, I Flipped The Flip Flop!


Daily Prompt: Flip Flop
Think of a topic or issue about which you’ve switched your opinion. Why the change? Photographers, artists, poets: show us transition.
—————————————————————————————————–

I’ve been watching an episode from The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon Cooper offers Howard his spot(for which he has more feelings than the love he has for his mother). Here, watch this little scene and laugh at how he turns back into the insufferably narcissistic Sheldon Cooper we know, seconds after Howard says he likes the new spot!

Turning back on our thoughts, opinions and promises is very common for all, I guess. But that should not be the case. I would give an example as fresh as yesterday. Yesterday, I woke up all panicky from my sleep only to find tranquil space all around me. Then I looked aside and sighed! I never make my bed, unless I wake up so fresh that I must have had a memory wipe done. I don’t even remember that making bed is a manner when I wake up. I just wake up like a troll and go on with my life. But yesterday, as I was saying, peculiarly, I woke up with these thoughts – ‘I won’t make my bed. Never. It is not like this mess is interfering with my daily activities’. The day rolled on like every other day until I saw a post on Facebook from eHow about ‘making your bed’, the update was hashtagged lifetip, here:

Make a point to make your bed after you wake up tomorrow. Making your bed every morning is correlated with higher productivity. It’s also been suggested that making your bed increases happiness.

I was guilt ridden after reading that. I thought, It isn’t like I have to climb a mountain or something, its just making the bed. The simplest thing ever, maybe. So I made up my mind to make bed everyday. All was good until I woke up today and remembered the promise I needed to keep. Can you guess what happened? Yes, I flipped the flip flop again.

I WILL MAKE MY BED TOMORROW!

I am only getting back to writing and blogging, so my posts would be a little clumsy. I think sticking to The Daily Post‘s writing prompts and challenges would get me back into proper writing groove. There are hundreds of bloggers participating and it would be great if you join too!

Please drop off links of your posts if you are writing for today’s prompt, I’d like to come by and read them! 🙂

  1. Interesting. Now that I’ve read this I’m beginning to realize I do have a feeling like I’m ready for the day once I make my bed. Before, I just did it because I’ve been disciplined to as a young girl growing up. Thanks for bringing this up because aside from the fact that It was embedded in me to do so, I totally get what it means for the rest of my day 🙂

    1. That’s great! I wish I learned that when I was young, I now realize how much better my days would be by adjusting myself subtly! Thank you very much for visiting, if you write a post for the daily prompts, do drop off the links here if you happen to comment on my post, I’m always looking back to reading posts from other bloggers! Keep writing! 🙂

  2. I NEVER make my bed. I think it’s a remnant rebellion against my mother. I get a lot done despite that, but of course, now I’m thinking – how much MORE could I get done if I just made my bed? Don’t tell my mom?

    1. bwahhahaha! That’d be clever! win-win, I guess! Actually, your mother is likely going to benefit more, because people say if you make your bed, you are more likely to stay active and positive all day thereby allowing yourself to doing simple things that you’d otherwise procrastinate or ignore!
      Thanks for stopping by! Keep writing! 🙂

  3. I disagree. I only make my bed when I put clean sheets on and the people I know who make their bed everyday tend to be very controlling, less carefree. As long as you don’t wear pjamama pants to the store you are doing good. 🙂

  4. I used to NEVER make my bed. Then something switched inside and now I make it almost every day. Its like you mentioned, I feel better about things and I do feel a bit more accomplished. You know, sadly mom’s are almost always right in the end!
