I find it interesting that at my age (I'm not ancient, but I'm no spring chicken, either) that I can still discover things about myself.
I really always thought I was pretty go-with-the-flow. I'm not very regimented, don't have many "routines." I generally take one day at a time. Or so I thought.
Turns out, I'm totally someone who dislikes spontaneity. Not someone who goes with the flow at all. I like plans. I like time to plan. I like to know, weeks ahead of time, what those plans are. So, when life throws a bit of a curve, what do I do? I freak out, that's what I do. I want details. I want answers. I want to be able to see into the future. I'm SO not a spontaneous kind of girl.
But, as the 12 steps programs say, acceptance is the first step of recovery, right? I really do want to be more spontaneous. The question is, can I change? Can I be more Zen about life's twists and turns?
I'll get back to you on that. But for now... Ohhhhmmm.
Are you a planner? Or more spontaneous?
