One of my biggest challenges at the moment is finding a routine. So far, I have been good about getting up in the morning, walking a few miles to get the day started, and I am on day 4 of my 30-day jump rope challenge. So far so good.

But I can tell I am struggling with finding how I want o organize my day. Maybe it is the restlessness of just sitting, or maybe my mind is pulling me to do something a bit more creative or get lost in a book.  I am not sure what it is. 

Part of me thinks it is shaking off 2020 and 2021. I started the shake off in 2022 but maybe this is me trying to find my footing. Every now and then, I look back to my 2019 schedule and wonder what I can grab from that, but then I realize I am a completely different person these days. My world and mindset has completely changed. It seems the life I was leading I adapted the routine to that which is good and kept me going. So now, I need to adapt to this new life.

I am not berating myself for not having it all together. Just a slow acknowledgment that it may take me a bit longer to get things sorted... and I am okay with that.

This RV life is definitely making me see life from different perspectives. My motto for the year is "to live the hell out of life." I can see I am doing that... or at least I think I am, and with that comes more layers of wisdom. This is going to be a fun ride.
