Planned Spontaneity
Posted 05-02-2016

I am an avid planner. I love to-do lists and schedule books. I spend some time every day planning the next day. When I travel, I make a file of pertinent documents and contact numbers so that I have them in case I need them. I plan my yoga classes and my workshops, I plan when to sleep and when to eat. As a result of my love of planning, I am a bit stingy with this thing called "spontaneity." It was recently suggested by one of my mentor teachers that I "put down the to-do list." :) [caption id="attachment_348" align="aligncenter" width="225"]IMG_5182 My 24-hour per day planners...maybe time for an inspiring upgrade from this![/caption] I joke, but it is actually a real problem. I want so much to plan and control everything in my day and schedule that it leaves no wiggle room for when a friend calls up and wants to have dinner last minute, or when my partner wants to run and grab a movie spur of the moment. My planning actually cuts out some really fun stuff from my life!
