Morning Stories: Sundays
Rain, routine and rest.
It’s raining this morning, with the delicate drops that create a mist like curtain. You need to look very closely to be sure it’s raining. The birds are loud and there’s lots of them singing. Apparently they only sing when they’re looking for a mate or when they want to communicate danger. It’s definitely dating season here.
I’m thinking a lot about writing, reading, routine and not putting all my energy in the wrong places. And this is also where my thoughts are this morning. Working towards a goal in life, while also having to do things which do not bring me closer to it, is a tricky game. So I need to build a good routine, find the rhythm to my days and stick to it religiously.
But Sundays are all about rest and only doing things I want to do. I can do anything, but I don’t have to do anything too. It’s the only day I never have to work at the library and so it is the only day I know I can always use as a total rest and reset day.
In a moment I’ll walk back downstairs and have my breakfast with a book and after that I’ll decide what I want to do next. There’s no plan to this day, the only thing I know for sure is that there will be some reading done and that I’ll serve as a cat bed.
I hope you’ll having a Sunday your way.

I relate with this on multiple levels. :) I too, am constantly trying to navigate working towards goals while maintaining that which does not necessarily propel me towards them. I have found that a daily rhythm of writing, planning, etc is crucial for me. So much so, that I get up way before the rest of my family so that I know I'll get that time in. And I still am not a natural morning person! Hehe. I also wanted to say that we do the same Sunday ritual as you do. I absolutely love it!
