breaking the routine – April 16, 2016

This morning, I surprised myself by, instead of going to the same cafe for the same breakfast, going to another cafe 20 min away on foot. I think my mind was busy with thoughts and my feet just started walking towards another direction. When I noticed that I smiled and took this opportunity to visit a cafe I have not been to for some time.

Breakfast (consisting of my regular coffee and bagel combo) was not the best, but I appreciated the change of place. From there, I visited the bookstore and immediately liked and purchased a book about abundance. I then sat at another cafe next to the bookstore, ordered myself a cup of nice coffee, and started reading my book.

After, I decided to visit a local store or two to buy some food. I am particularly excited about the beef bones that I bought and that make awesome soup base/stock! Cannot wait to consume them.

It was a great morning and a great change of routine for me. Nothing feels better when you break the routine, stop doing the same things and visiting the same places.

It was long overdue for me and I was feeling the weight of the boredom lately. I am glad my feet drove me to another direction this morning and I am glad the weather was nice and I had a thin french-coat on me rather than the winter coat, which made walking not only easy but also pleasurable.

have a great Saturday everyone! ­čÖé

I am increasingly thinking about letting more things go

There is something very refreshing and exciting about letting things go; I started making progress in this direction yesterday.

I am increasingly thinking about letting more things go. Mostly about work, but you know, I feel like I can change things in my life, too. Yes!

Many of us change jobs, houses, cities, and life-style conditions/habits throughout our lives. Sometimes, we do not want to do the change. Other times, it feels exciting.

I knew for some time that I wanted to change the focus of my projects. So far I have done good, considering the limited resources. It has been a great learning experience (the topic of my projects in the last few years were new to me), I worked with really great people, produced quite a bit, and got recognition for my work. All is good.

What is not that good is the accumulation of hardened work relationships, the need for fresh, new questions, fields, questions, experiences, work environments, topics, and work relationships.

When this “memory bin” gets full; you feel it.

I did and I am dumping that garbage. It is a process and it just started.

I am excited.
