“A foolish Consistency is the hobgoblins of little minds….”
——– Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Self-Reliance“, 1841
I started the year determined to find joy and blog about it every day. Then I missed a day here or then, then this past week I just didn’t get to it at all. Had I fallen into a rut where even joy could be gloomy? Or is it just the reality of my life that I don’t readily fall into daily rhythms, that my strength is in the newness of each day and not in the routines from yesterday?
Sure, remaining true to yourself is a matter of values and big decisions. But it’s also a matter of practical daily activities, recognizing the rhythms, routines, relaxations, and balance that works best, and changing it up when whenever necessary.
And yes, this blog is continuing.
