As a new day starts, there is so much possibility. What will each of us do today? What do we hope for today? Are we sad, happy, afraid, ambitious, resigned, or just going about our lives?
I have very little routine in my life. Some would suggest that I accomplish very little and a routine would help. Perhaps that is true in some ways. I live more in the world of possibilities though and I try to find and reach for them as I go along. I'll miss some and hit some and try to enjoy the process.
While routines can help us get things done by providing a framework for living, I would never want to be tied to rigidity and be closed to the newness of each day. There are so many avenues to go down or at least look down in life. By sticking to routines, we might miss them. I think life will be richer if we don't.
