We all have routines. When one is broken how do you react?

Image from:

I spoke with Lisa R, a reader of Wisdom and Life last week about this subject. I have a Sunday routine that is so sacred to me that when it is disrupted, when I can’t perform that scheduled routine I find it difficult to get through the rest of the day. There have been times when something interferes and I’m not the same after.


I’ve recently had another friend who has been asking me to join him at a 10am meeting on Sundays.  Unfortunately, the past two times he has asked me, I’ve had the client meeting.  Otherwise I would certainly have gone.  I want to spend the bulk of my Sunday mornings with my friends, and Pete is definitely someone I connect with on more than just friendship level.  We share so much more in common than simply friendship.  Our belief systems match up so closely that we can talk for hours and time stands still.


I hoping to get to his meeting at some point, however I’ll soon be working on Sundays again too.  That will throw another wrench into my routine as well  We will see.


Typically, Sunday mornings start this way for me:
I’m up by 8am and out the door by 9.  Usually every other Sunday, I have a 930 or 10 am meeting with photographers or social media clients.  Then I meet with several friends at Starbucks in Madison, Connecticut.  That was my schedule yesterday and it brings my so much joy to discuss with clients the things I do to bring abundance to my life.  After my 45 minute meeting, I took a little walk then met my friends at Starbucks.


That’s the way I typically spend my Sunday mornings.  When that schedule does not happen I find it challenging the rest of the day.


Lisa R said the same thing that she has to find a way to manage her schedule so she can maintain her rituals.  I’m in complete agreement with her because I know how it feels if my Sunday morning is disrupted.


My Sunday morning routine is sacred to me and if I don’t have the opportunity to spend the morning the way I want to then the rest of my day is disrupted as well.


What are some of yours?
What happens to you if you can’t perform your rituals?
Let me know in the comments below.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
