Groundhog Moment

When I saw this prompt I immediately thought of the movie Groundhogs Day. This was released in 1993 and stared Bill Murray. He relives the same day over and over again. Much like other films like Looper, Doctor Strange and The Last day of Summer.

Starting the same day the same way can get a little redundant. Wake up, stretch get ready and head to work. After being in a job for awhile days kinda blend together especially when you are the same tasks over and over. Not being able to have a window to look out regularly definitely make it feel like its the same day and time. When I was working in retail this happened more times than I could count. At one point I had the exactly same conversation with a coworker and then they reminded me we had that conversation. I felt it was the same day because I was wearing the same shirt, we were standing in front of the same section on the store and the same commercials were playing over the loud speakers. I didn’t know what day it was until I looked at a calendar upstairs. As if I relived that day again and then again. This feeling never happened more than three times of one day but it definitely felt unnerving. It doesn’t hurt to have a little more variety in ones life.  Change up that morning routine, where a different hair clip, watch, tie, shoes, or shirt. Do something different than the norm.

Have you ever had a groundhog moment?
