Having a daily routine has always felt easeful for me. The steady security of knowing what is to come and what I need to show up for day in and day out.
While living at an ashram in New Zealand I was shocked to find out that living with a daily routine was one of the hardest parts of integrating into an ashram setting for so many.
We each have those parts of our lives that really ask us to show up in new ways. Those parts, people, and experiences that encourage our personal growth and evolution. For me, this has been learning to be more adaptable and not so attached to my daily routine. And now, I often think of my routines more as my daily rituals which I will continue to talk more about in future musings.
I write this now because I am in the midst of noticing how far I have come in this evolution. How, right now, I am yearning to get back home and into the groove of my daily practices and my morning rituals. And yet, this is not taking away from my experience of being here with my mom, sister, brother-in-law and new baby Nephew Ollie. How I can hold an awareness that yes, I find comfort in being home, settled and in my flow AND I can find ease and curiosity in the moment to moment experience of not knowing exactly how each day will unfold. I am noticing, for me, it is a choice. To choose to allow myself to settle into the unknown and to actually appreciate the space it gives me to wonder and just show up to the experience without being attached to any certain outcomes or have to’s.
I would love to hear your experience with routines or lack thereof. Tell me what challenges you experience while trying to stick to a routine. Do you have daily rituals that are your non-negotiables? How have you learned to be more adaptable?
