Today, while thinking of routines and restoring balance, I was reminded how quickly all of that can be disrupted. At work, I found out that one of the main suppliers we deal with had gone into receivership. While this was hugely disruptive on a professional front, it was also remarkably upsetting on the personal front: people I have worked with for the last several years have just found out they’re about to lose their jobs.

It’s a reminder that we’re not always in control of our routine, nor do we necessarily own the balance of our lives. Things can happen that will throw it all in the garbage.

But, I guess if I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that these things can happen, and we will stubbornly persist regardless.

Also, it would be remiss of me to let this date pass without wishing my favourite Doctor a Happy Birthday πŸ˜‰
