Daily Prompt: Those Dishes Won't Do Themselves (Unfortunately)

I remember listening to one of Alan Watts lectures on doing dishes and how most people get themselves really annoyed about doing the dishes because they see this big pile of dishes and they think about how much effort it will take and how long it will take. He was using this as a metaphor for any kind of work you have to do and he put it that the way to look at life is that you are only ever doing one dish if you are living in the moment and that takes the burden out of it. At times I can enjoy housework because it can be relaxing if you don’t put pressure on yourself however it depends what mood I’m in and I can never understand how long it takes to hang out washing! I also stopped ironing years ago – waste of time and energy.
