I hate stepping out of my routine, even for little things. Someone (LadyVol1?) commented at some point that I had a need to be in control. I think that’s at the heart of why I dislike so strongly changes in my routine.
Spontaneity? I can handle that, which might sound contradictory. However, I like surprises. Also, there’s no way to have three kids without being at least a little flexible.
Today I am attending a work-related dinner. I enjoy spending time with my colleagues, but I’m missing my workout. There’s a spiritual practice involving living in the moment that could help me in these situations. It seems so pointless to expend energy wishing one could avoid what one perceives as an interruption. Living in the moment makes sense.
