Give Me My Routines

The past three months of my life were a great learning experience. Taking the good with the bad, I have come to see that I am definitely the type of person who functions best on routines.

From Monday to Friday, I have no choice but to fittingly adapt to the changes in my workday. When I am on my own time, I try to maintain a steady schedule as much as possible.  For the longest time it has been my ritual that every Saturday morning I go out for breakfast at the local coffee shop followed by a trip to the spa.  Additionally, it is my errand day where I can complete the tasks I was unable to accomplish during the week.  On a typical Sunday, I love to stay home and unwind unless it is a necessity for me to leave.

While I absolutely love taking an active role in party planning, it does not always mesh well with my need for structure.  All to often, it ends up feeling like a hot dog eating contest.   Appointments are jam-packed into one day and you try to get in as much as you can before the time runs out.  You end up feeling physically exhausted without the unfortunate blessing of indigestion.

I am extremely thankful for the events that I went through because I have realized a lot about myself in the process.  I may operate differently than the rest of the world but at the end of the day, I have to do what works best for me.  It may take me longer but the bottom line is it will all be complete.
Thank you for reading!
