Lately there has been a lot of change in my life and in the lives of many of the people I love. The change is good change. The change is a deviation from a routine.
A routine often brings a sense of comfort. You know what is likely to happen and how to deal with it. There are minimal surprises, if any. There is just predictability and repetition. Things may get boring, but at least you know what is coming. (At least that is what a routine may lead you to believe.)
