Shuffle Mode

I am a creature of habit. I like to keep track on schedules and have a plan for the day. Nothing extreme, but enough planned out ahead of time so that I know what to expect throughout the day. When my “schedule” gets shuffled for any reason everyone can feel the effects whether it be in a good or bad way. But I am learning to embrace change and see it as a positive adventure.


For instance, the next few weeks I am not going to the gym to workout, but instead I am going to take a break and take it easy. As hard as that is to imagine, and yes it is killing me, but the time I have gained from this I am using to spend with my boys, one on one time with my boys. And they love it, as am I, and I can really see a change in their demeanor. Another example, instead of searching around mindlessly on the computer, I am using that time to sit and snuggle with my boys while they are watching TV. While I could be running around my house doing laundry, washing dishes, vacuuming, and organizing (things of which I all love to do, cause I am crazy like that), I am helping my two younger boys enjoy playing together nicely, practicing how to share, and working on using nice language. It’s not always fun and games, but its important stuff that I am striving to make time for and the benefits are going to make a lasting impression.

I am enjoying life at the moment on shuffle.
