Here is a natural bouquet from my garden.
I have said before, I like routine. Change is difficult for me. DH knows he has to give me time to get used to something before it happens. I am not spontaneous or very flexible. I have to say in my defense, I am trying to overcome this. It is not easy.
Several years ago I had my day all planned out. It was packed full of things I love to do. WHen I got a phone call. My niece, who was a few months pregnant, needed me to take her to the hospital for a problem she was experiencing. WIthout thinking, I ran to the car and went to get her. This took the entire day. I did not even give a thought to what I had planned.
This morning I had my day all planned. I had my meals planned. knew what time I would be walking. I knew how long I could spend here on SP. then the phone rang. I saw it was my cousin in Tennessee. I thought, Oh no, this will take a while. What about my walk? What about my SP time?
But people are important. I love my cousin. I get to talk to her about twice a month. Of course I answered the hone. I did not look at the time. I just enjoyed our visit.
My time to walk has been pushed back. I will make it work.
being flexible is hard for me. SOmetimes it means eating something when I am not at home, that may be not on my plan. SOmetimes it means missing a workout to visit with someone. SOmetimes it may mean doing something I was not expecting to do. Learning to go with the flow and to not berate myself is slowly coming together for me.
And, although routine is one of the ways I feel secure, being less rigid is also enjoyable if I allow it to be.
Have a wonderful day.
