Routines

I would like to think that I am a creature of habit. I would like to think that I stick to my routines. 

I would like to think that. But I can’t. As it is, this blog is late. So, why am I writing about routines? Well, like last week’s topic of patience, I’m really learning about routines. My mornings start at 5:30 because my first (injectable) antibiotic is at 5:45 and then the 2 hour IV drip starts at 6. The second 2 hour IV drip starts at 6 PM. It is imperative that I stick with this schedule for another 3 ½ weeks. These treatments are daily so there are no days off. And that is really why I’m speaking of routines. 


One of my previous blogs was about time management and making time daily to write. It became painfully clear to me that I write when I have “extra” time. I cannot do that with these antibiotics or else the treatment will not work and it will all be a waste of time. I began asking myself that I’ve been getting up at 5:30 now for 2 ½ weeks faithfully, so why cannot I do this (or set some other time) for writing, my current career? For years, I had always been to work on time, so why cannot I show up for work on time for me? 


This blog is not about life coaching you; it’s more about sticking to your routines and what is important to you, besides getting up and going to work. What hobbies do you enjoy doing but wait until you have “extra” time? Prioritizing activities that boost our mental health are even more important than our regular routines. Especially anything that entails housework. Laundry, dishes, dusty tables, etc, will always be there waiting for you. 


Perhaps this spinal infection is actually teaching me a thing or two. It’s keeping me down while moving me forward. I do know that writing is taking priority. Take some time to think about things you have put on the backburner but did not mean to. Bring them to the forefront. You’ll be glad you did.

Just a reminder, if you didn’t subscribe to the newsletter, there’s time to do so before April’s edition.

Until next time….
