ROWandering Homeward: #ROW80 /#12WeekYear MW11

 

Hey there!

 

It’s been a wandery week for me so far.

Every time I set plans, something happens that shifts them.

 

I’ve decided that, rather than force myself to try to comply with schedules that aren’t working for me, I’m going to roll with it. When life changes, I will change with it. That way, I can manage what I’m able to, and do so without undue stress.

What do you do when life gets wandery, and you want to focus?

  1. Winter’s darker hours call us to rest more, allowing our minds to wander and explore new paths. It sounds like you’ve been called away to many new and interesting places. Perhaps not always the places you’d planned for… but you will find ways to use these things for growth and delight.
