It’s Saturday. It’s Saturday? No wait, it’s Fri…. No, it is Saturday.
When so much of life rotates around going to church, going to work, going to baseball games, planning graduations, did I mention going to school? Take all of those things away and it’s hard to remember what day it is. They all seem to blend together.
According to my phone, it is Saturday. This whole isolation – very little is like normal – routine is very disorienting.
So what do you do when the routine got thrown out the proverbial window?
Well, a couple of things I’ve learned….
…acknowledge that you don’t know it all and accept that.
…take things one day at a time.
…don’t borrow tomorrow’s troubles for today. (My wife has taught me a lot about that).
…acknowledge not only that you don’t know it all but that you don’t need to know it all right now. If you had told me where I’d be now compared to 20 years ago, I would not have believed you. So don’t worry about where you’ll be 20 years from now.
…Look for the things that can become the new routine.
And that’s a glance at Day 4 of Isolation 2.04. A Saturday where very little felt routine.
