Routine flexibility

Every once a while, we evolve some weekday routine with the kids. This may be a change to a morning drop off routine, an evening pre-sleep routine or something we do over the weekend. When this happens, we celebrate the sheer awesomeness of this new practice and fall in love with it.

Until some variable that made the old routine great changes.

That signals that it is time to change again. The same process follows. Evolve. Fall in love. Realize it is broken again.

The beautiful thing about this evolution is that it reminds me of the importance of continuous evolution. Things change. The best thing we can do is embrace that change and evolve ourselves.

It also helps me appreciate the power of recognizing the impermanence of things.

Change is the only constant.
