Plan


My idea of a perfect weekend is one with no plans whatsoever. I much prefer to go with the flow, letting serendipity run its course.

On the other hand, my natural inclination to do nothing means that I miss out on experiences that I would probably enjoy.

There is a space between sloth and overwhelmed by obligations. I would like to inhabit that space a little more comfortably.

It would probably help if I didn’t give everything the stink eye. Girls’ Night Out? Too much trouble. Symphony? Too much trouble. Yoga once a week? Too much trouble.

This week I’m making plans & participating in life. I did (modified for decrepit individuals) yoga on Monday. Dr. M & I are attending a symphony performance on Sunday. And, well, I’m skipping Girls’ Night Out but it’s because I’m participating in a church meeting instead.

See? That wasn’t so bad – I can make plans. I’ll probably need a week to recuperate, but baby steps people! Baby steps!

  1. Sometimes we need to be pulled kicking and screaming out of our comfort zone.

  3. ah the best laid plans of mice...

    plans are good to have at a high level, a general thing to be aiming for - but they need the flexibility at the low level to go with the flow

    btw - if you were thinking that the first sentence should have ended ...and men, then i think you'll find that the mice have very strong feelings on the issue :)

  4. You got a lot of P's in there!
    I was told if I am striving to be a mature human, I need balance !
    I try not to project ( feelings
    get stretched) I enjoy spontaneous
    and offset that with contributing
    something productive...Heehee.

  7. I don't like for my dance card to be too full, either. Doing that leaves too little time for knitting. That said, I have to squeeze in Full Moon Movie Night sometime this weekend. Will it be Eddie Murphy or Leonardo DiCaprio? Decisions, decisions.

  8. While I like Leo quite a bit, I think I'd have to go with Eddie - more my kind of movie :)
