Uncertainties

My friend Nikki had this on her Facebook status yesterday: "I just realized that I am a creature of habit."

That made me think...aren't we all? While some of us may yearn for adventure more than others, there is still a part of us that banks on the fact that there are things that we can count on, no matter what.

I know that when I wake up in the morning, I will have my cup of coffee. I know for a fact that when I get to work, I will have good friends surrounding me. I know that no matter what, my family will be there for me.

Then again, things happen without any warning. There are days when it seems that the floor just falls out from under me. During these times, I feel so uncertain about tomorrow. These times make me scramble to get a firm hold on my life, just to make sure that I won't be staring down the edge of a cliff. These are the times when I find myself looking at options like life insurance quotes and other potential income sources.

I am not much of a planner. I may not be that organized. But I do realize that there is room for these things in my life. Now more than ever.

  1. Yeah, it's comforting to know that there are constants that will be there no matter what. :-)

  2. I don't do well with spontaneity, I like my routine as it is very comforting. I'm not rigid in my routine but I do better if it isn't messed up too much. :0)

  3. I am TOTALLY a creature of habit, routine and structure and when they get thrown off? I spiral into panic mode!
