Life and laundry

When we’re young, we tend to think of life as a series of exams. At every step, the questions get harder and the feeling of achievement of making it to the other side feels correspondingly larger.

Over time, I’ve come to realize that doing the laundry/dishes or cleaning our home is a better analogy for life.

Regardless of how well you do it today, you’ll never conquer laundry or doing the dishes. More will always be waiting at the other end – whether you like it or not.

You can learn just as much as you decide to learn.

And you can find just as much joy as you want to find.
