A Flexible Agenda


I’m a creature of habit and don’t do well with sudden change. When I met my husband and realized that being extremely punctual wasn’t important to him I thought, Hmm this is going to be a real problem. Early on in our relationship he suggested that when we got where we were going would be the right time. What heretic nonsense. It didn’t take long for me to see that he was right. So after that lesson, I began to explore the idea that sometimes stuff happens and we have to go with the flow as they say or we end up unhappy and worse.

The inability to be flexible for someone like me can cause all sorts of problem. Loosen up and make some plan B’s in case plan A doesn’t work out. I promise you it won’t lead to your death.

I was planning to go to the pool this morning. By the time I was ready to leave storms of near biblical proportion (2012!!!!!!!) were bearing down on my corner of New Jersey and after much gnashing of teeth I decided to skip the pool. Okay so what now. Generally I would spend an hour wondering if I made the right decision and lamenting the loss of my workout. Instead I changed my clothes and went to CURVES and did my hour workout. Guess what I felt good and if the weather permits, I’ll be at the pool tomorrow! Life goes on.
