It’s Monday and I’m writing again! Funny how that works. The minute I’m back in my weekday routine, I’m straight back to my writing. Over the weekend? Not so much.
I know this is because my morning routine is not as strong (and occasionally non-existent) on the weekends. This is due in large part to the fact that I’ve been away a lot lately – this was one of my first weekends at home in over a month! But also, I think it’s because I want my weekends to feel less regimented. Weird things happen on weekends (read: getting up early for Hamilton tickets, etc) and I want to be able to adapt to them!
So I have decided that rather than fight it, or make myself feel badly, I’m just going to read the writing on the wall…or lack thereof, as the case may be. As I said in this podcast episode, our behaviour has so much to tell us about what we want and what we need, even if we’re not consciously aware of those desires. And my behaviour lately has said: no writing on weekends!
This behaviour has been consistent enough that I wouldn’t say it’s resistance. For me, resistance tends to have a whiny, emotional component. This change has just been a simple shrug: “nope!” Because it’s not so emotionally loaded, I don’t feel like I need to push myself on this. Writing 4-5 days a week is more than enough for me. It’s all an experiment, and I’m learning so much as I go!
