I was just about to start recording a short piece for a podcast when the power went off. Uh oh. The script for the podcast was on the computer. Still no storm though. The power just went poof. I decided that I would do some exercise as I didn't need any electricity for that. Then the power came back on, but I decided to do the exercise and then the recording. I, of course, had to start over a few times. Wheh that was done.
Finally I was able to write a draft for one of the sample meditation videos that my book designer and I are working on. And, now my blog post.
All because I am learning to be flexible. Yet, at the same time the mental planning I did came in handy as I was able to go through the list I created and cross things off the list. So, just as being flexible is important to me, planning a "road map" of my day is also helpful to me. This way I don't feel as if I am floundering through my life. Planning my day gives me some focus, and it helps me make some progress. But figuring out how I can change things around to fit the circumstances of the day makes sure that I can actually do the things on my list.
