I’ve been trying to keep my schedule fairly open lately to be able to say YES to things that may come up. I’m so used to planning in advance, whether it’s a dinner with friends or a weekend hike. I was recently reminded of my supposed new mindset when my friend from out of town asked me to meet up. It was a Monday night, a school night, and it was only 8:45pm. Not that late. She practically had to beg me to meet up with her when she was 10 minutes away. I gave in. And after we hung out, I left feeling refreshed and happy that I got to see her.
I have no idea why it was such a struggle for me. Because it wasn’t set in my nightly routine? Because I didn’t have it in my calendar? When did I become such a grandma? Being spontaneous and open to doing anything at anytime is the fun part of life. I’m opening myself up to saying yes again. I already have lots of plans this weekend because I kept my schedule open.
