I am a slave to routine – my “program” if you will.
I long for freedom. I need so desperately to de-program.
Yesterday, the heroic Hedda inspired me to skip my usual afternoon swim (which I’ve NOT been feeling of late…Cold water? Wet? Ugh.) and to just take a walk! So I did. I went to the gym, read in the sauna and then walked out. Got home and took a walk with my head in the clouds.
I have not swam since Friday and today I was feeling the “pressure” to swim. Why? Well, because that is what I do.
That is what I am programmed to do.
Instead? I went straight home. Took a quick breather and went for a 20 minute walk to get my endorphins in.
I got to see this:
Instead of this:
Another thing? I ate something before dinner. Just because. That is not typical.
I have to share though, because… really?
Who eats sticks and twigs?
I had to giggle because they really do look like…sticks. And twigs.
Anyway –I am proclaiming Tuesdays to be ATYPICAL TUESDAYS from here on out.
I don’t want to be a slave.
- Gotta routine? Feel like a slave to the grind? What’s one thing you might-could do to color outside the lines? Wanna do it next Tuesday?
