I have to admit it…I love routines.  I love knowing that when I wake up each morning I have a set way of doing things.  I love my morning meditation, I love my writing time, I love my gratitude walks with my dog Courtney.  For me it is all about a balance of what works for me.  When I have my daily ritual it just seems to work.  I love to look back at the end of my day and feel as though I have accomplished all that I set out to do for that day.  Vacations are all about recharging your batteries, connecting with family and friends and not so much about the routines.  I look forward to getting back on track to my normal routine, back to my paper and pen and back to what is familiar.

As you journal today think  about what routines you have in your life.  Do they help you to stay on “track”?
