My routine is my anchor. Without my routine, I am drifting away, not knowing where I am going. I like our Mon-Wed routine of eating salads, working hard, and being disciplined. I also like my Thu-Fri routine when we tend to loosen up a bit, and go easy on ourselves. Then of course, we have the Sat-Sun routine of extracurricular activities, family time, and getting ready for the week. Whenever we follow our routine, our day to day business operates like a well-oiled machinery. Thank god for that, what would I do without my routine!
Too much of this routine, and I am itching to break free. The routine that is comforting becomes tiresome. Even a well oiled machinery needs some down time every once in a while to keep it going. And that is why I am thankful for months like November and December when long weekends and school breaks give us the freedom to slowdown a bit and do something that’s not routine.
