Consistently Inconsistent

 One of the things  I struggle with  every day is my inability to keep a daily routine.  For some reason, I get all judgmental with myself when I can't seem to find a good regime and stick to it.  I've finally come to the conclusion (after 42 years, lol) that I'm thinking about this the wrong way.  Yes, we all function in the paradigm of a 24 hour day, but I think my actual 'day' is about twice that.  In the span of just about every 48 hours, I'll go through my standard phases of being hungry, wanting to get tons of work done, needing a hard core nap, needing some exercise, coveting my alone time and going crazy from lack of a social outlet.  In other words, I think I cycle through my basic physical, mental and emotional needs every 2 days.  Anytime I think that I need to do 'X' every day, it never happens and I end up frustrated with myself rather than realizing that I don't rejuvenate that way.

Hmmm, food for thought...
