Sometimes, to add a new element into your life, you may need to break somewhat, either permanently, or temporarily, from tried and true routines. This is not a small matter, for maintaining the discipline of productive routines has propelled you most effectively along your creative road, has maximized productivity, maintained connection with soul, society, and muse.
Despite a rather extensive male fan club, Lolita has been seeking lately a special one to fill some gap in the creature comfort department, someone perhaps not quite as intense and hardworking as she, a simple soul to share simple moments, party, smooch.
She did meet someone recently on the phone chat. Had a date. Felt some click. The guy is a bit unpredictable, maybe a little nuts. But seems there is an easiness about him that comforts our Girl.
Unfortunately, their schedules are not so compatible and he lives a bit out of town to boot. Further, some arranged dates fell apart. Although Lolita washed her hands of the guy because of that, he kept on re-appearing with texts and she kept on opening to him again. But the issue of difficulty in finding times to actually meet continued.
The Spaniel Muse suggested that Lolita take advantage of some of the extra time and flexibility available to her during her vacation week to make herself available at non-typical times to her new man interest. She was somewhat surprised at this advice because Deuce had mainly been encouraging her to dig more deeply, more profoundly into the tried and true routines, with an eye towards having a somewhat expanded productive pallet when she returns to her day job next week.
But Deuce thought this need to introduce some new social life into Lolita’s day was worth breaking routine for. And ironically, when she suggested to her new man her availability to meet during the day – something very out of the ordinary for our Girl, he turned around and proposed an evening visit anyway. So it was merely the willingness to break routine, more than actually needing to break, that moved Lol off the dime with her new love interest.
Needless to say – there will be occasions when actual breaks from the routine will be in order. You will weigh, in your usual sagacious manner, the downsides and upsides. Like good audio editing, the most profound transformations can be achieved through the most subtle parameter tweaks.
