Something about Routine · 27 July 2019
There is something to be said for routine. You know, doing the same thing over and over and over again.
There is something to be said for routine. You know, doing something over and over and over again. Until it is a habit. Until it is ingrained in your body and soul. There is comfort. There is familiarity. There is a certain amount of peace. Even if that routine is early in the morning or late at night. Or any time.
I enjoy routine. I like getting up early and reading my Bible, eating, and writing. I do it pretty much every day whether I am going to work or not. This routine is comforting, and it gets me going in a positive direction each morning.
The strange thing is that I find it more difficult to write when my routine is disrupted or when I write later in the day than usual. I am not sure what it is. Maybe it is that my brain is used to working a certain way at a certain time. Maybe it is that I am compartmentalized as psychologists say. Maybe it is just that I am making excuses. Or maybe I just do not know what it is I am supposed to write about today.
In the end, it does not really matter. I am in my routine. I am doing what I am supposed to do. I am writing. Even if it is later than usual. And that is about it.
There is something to be said for routine. There is comfort in doing the same thing over and over and over again.
