What do I need is a common inner question.
The world is demanding even in times of the coronavirus.
My inner voice is reciting the should’s and have to’s.
I tend to adopt what I did yesterday instead of choosing something new today.
I am a creature of habit and habit is comfortable.
Yesterday I chose to step out of my scheduled day and did something different.
The energy in my body protested as I felt like I was walking through mud
But I persisted and felt the refreshing feeling of change.
A change in perspective alters my path
Changing my perception changes my viewpoint.
Stuck in the mundane makes for a stale existence
Adding in tiredness or feeling ill changes my whole canvas
Years ago when I chose to wear a watch on my wrist
I was challenged to switch wrists every day
I grumbled and resisted the idea of change in general
Daily practice of switching wrists did settle into a routine over time
Initially it made me feel upside down.
Change is healthy
Life is based on birth and erosion
I am at the helm of my existence
I can steer myself into a different lane
I can look for a different view
I learn new things about myself when changes occur
Even with illness I learn about myself
Even in celebration I learn about myself
Even in loss I learn about myself
I am safe changing my routine
I always learn something about myself when I change what’s expected
