Routines

This morning when I returned home from my walk, I saw a big spider web in the front of my building.  I tried to take a picture of it but it was too fragile for the camera, so I went online and found a short video of a spider spinning a web.

Imagine the time it takes and the massive routine a spider must go through to weave a web. And it’s so fragile. All I had to do was touch the web to destroy it but of course, I didn’t want to interfere with the spider’s intricate work.

What’s interesting is that spiders are not taught how to build webs, it is instinctual. It’s what they do to capture flies and other flying insects they can then eat.

We too have routines. Some we pick up from our parents and other elders, others we create ourselves. I am reminded of when I first started working in my 20’s as director of preschool programs. I loved working for the children, however it didn’t take too many years for me to realize that I was not fond of the routine. The idea of going to the same place every day for years and years with the same people just didn’t appeal to me. That’s when I realized that I was better suited for a career that had lots of variety.

This decision has served me well in some ways and has been a challenge in others. One thing I learned is that even in the variety there is routine. As we create our lives we create some type of routine that helps us know what to expect and do from day to day.

Now I find myself modifying my routine again. As my authenticity process is reaching a new level of maturity, its beginning to be recognized by new and larger groups. These offer new opportunities. One such opportunity was introduced to me last week and changes my routine again. I will share details later.

The routine change is the Face Book Live and Master Class that I announced just last week will be postponed until September. More information coming.

In the meantime, think about the routines in your life. Were they chosen by you or by someone else? If you chose them, did you do so because you had to or because you wanted to? What do you need to change in your routines to become more authentic?

When our habits become so routine that we get on auto-pilot and are not making conscious decisions about our well-being, it’s time to examine the routine. If your routine does not serve you, change it. You don’t have to build the same web every time. As humans, we have the ability to evaluate and change. It’s important to know when it’s time to make the move.

With Love and Authenticity
