Carving new routines

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I've been trying to carve out new routines for my morning. My intention was to have 25 minutes of reading time with the Mythic Game Master Emulator. This morning that didn't happen due to a hectic and unplanned morning. But that's OK. There's always tomorrow. Just because I didn't manage to do the thing that I wanted to do doesn't mean I'm a bad person or that I'm a consummate failure; it just means that this morning wasn't conducive to me being able to do the thing that I wanted to do. Period. I'll try again tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after. And if things aren't working tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after then I can recalibrate and figure out what needs to change in order for me to be able to do my intention. That's all. It's like juggling or throwing darts or riding a bike; just because you dropped the ball, missed the target, or fell off doesn't mean you're a horrible person; it just means that you get to try again next time. And who knows; maybe you'll be juggling darts while riding a unicycle and tossing said darts to perfect bulls-eyes? Or maybe you'll just be good at riding a bike, OK at juggling, and rubbish at darts. That's OK too.

Each day is a day to renew those intentions. Do what you can and enjoy it.
