I read this post the other day and I haven’t been able to shake it.
About breaking my routine.
At first I convinced myself that I already do this. And maybe I do, sometimes.
But not nearly enough.
There is a tendency to do what is comfortable. Necessary. Expected.
I am breaking away.
Taking one day out of the week, as much as possible, to make a point to break away.
This has been on my heart all day today.
And a way to make sure I at least make an attempt to break away would be to document these moments of breaking away.
Visiting new places, or my favorite places.
Taking a day trip to the beach.
A trip to Starbucks.
To a field of wildflowers… and have a picnic.
Visit that adorable shop I just keep passing by.
Pete’s working long, long hours these days. And friends, that is not a complaint.
I am thankful. Especially in this economy.
But with him gone a lot, we have a lot more ‘down time’ around here.
There just isn’t an excuse not to break away from my normal routine.
Working from home can be a challenge at times, but I feel like my time could use some readjusting.
In a good way :)
With a hundred and seventeen things to do, it would be too easy to be swallowed alive in my lists, obligations and more.
One day a week when possible will be my breaking away posts.
This might preserve the excitement, the passion for everything I feel so strongly about today.
And capture today all at the same time.
