Today, my word for the week is Erratic.
Right now, it seems to suit me, even though I don’t like being erratic. I like consistency and routine. I don’t care for surprises and spontaneity. Impulsiveness worries me. I have had enough surprises and I don’t like them anymore.
However, I am in a cycle of transition. Going from a vampire schedule to a morning glory one. Well, trying anyway, lol. Trying to get back on track with my diet, with my cleaning routine, blah blah blah. I know I sound like the most boring person on earth, and I sound that way because it’s true. And I am totally good with that. I find comfort in the boring now. My “wild child” days, tame as they probably seem in hindsight, are long done now.
Strange as it may sound, I feel like once I get under all the erraticism I am currently working through, I will get back to the heart of me. Chaos may currently reign, but no chaos every withstood a good dose of order, and I got organization in spades. 😀
What are you focused on or working through this week?
