Can I pick which Rosary mysteries to pray?

Hello, I recently started to pray the Rosary. I try to do this every day, but often will forget or get distracted and not have time. Additionally, I often have a hard time remembering which mysteries to pray on the days of the week.

So my question is: Does it matter which mysteries I meditate on while in prayer? For instance if I pray the Sorrowful Mysteries on a Tuesday but forget the Luminous on Thursday, is it appropriate to switch to the Luminous on Friday? I feel like this is a silly question, but it is one of those things I can’t get out of my head, so I’ll leave it to you! Thank you.

God Bless you and your ministry. Catholic Answers Live has been a source of my recent reversion to the Church and I will never forget it. Last December I was a lukewarm Catholic, but am a completely different soul now.
