I crashed and burned today. I’m usually pretty full of enthusiasm for everything in my life, but today I started out anxious and overwhelmed (after a crappy night’s sleep, I might add…and I can’t even blame it on the puppy. Maybe I can blame it on being all worried about the puppy?). I could not muster up my usual efficiency to get everything together and hurl myself out the door. So I didn’t. And I’m glad I took a time-out, I needed it. I was pondering this and realized that there’s been a lot of shake-ups in our routine-driven household lately. You know that advice many life-coaches give about the psychological benefits of shaking up your routine and doing things in a different way? Well perhaps we’ve overdosed a bit. Since the new year we’ve had the following changes:
- Morgane in school all day on Tuesdays – thought it wouldn’t be a big deal but apparently it is
- I’m teaching a new yoga class on Monday evening – you should know that I rarely leave my cozy nest on weekday evenings…who am I kidding, on weekends too – just call me OMbody (ha ha)
- A sweet 8-week old girl puppy was added to our family yesterday – need I say more?
