A Perfect Day

Have you ever sat down and tried to decide what your perfect day would look like?

On a perfect day my day would begin at 7 AM instead of the 8 AM it currently starts at. But why pick such an arbitrary time? Truth is that's what time my parents and later my kids woke me up at every day and I feel it is what I should be doing. Many decades later certain mind sets are hard to shake.

On a perfect day if I'm supposed to be going out that day I wouldn't talk myself out of it. I have done that, with time to think I find reasons why I can't possibly do it that day. That's why my family and my doctors find me unreliable. I would go to those appointments without second thoughts.

On a perfect day I would eat three meals and two snacks. I do eat three meals but I delay them until I have no choice but to put something in my stomach. Two snacks, sometimes, it depends on what I have in the way of what I consider snack food. The first thing I should do is to actually schedule my meals so that I eat when I should instead of waiting until I have no choice. The second thing I should do is expand my definition of snack food so that I can always find something for those two snacks

On a perfect day I would spend 15 minutes outside taking in fresh air and sunshine. Also on a perfect day I would be doing a 20- 30 minute workout of some sort. I don't like going outside if it is too hot or too cold, I would have to get over that. Exercise does not need to be exercise it can be several five minute sets of movement during the day. To some extent I do that now but it is no where near the 20 minute mark.

On a perfect day I would spend an hour or two interacting with my peers. I have peers, I'm just real bad at connecting to them. Call it shyness or introversion, both would be correct and both severely limit me. If I had one wish I would wish those limitations away.

On a perfect day I would clean my house immediately instead of letting it build up to ungodly proportions before getting the chores done. I could blame my illness for this except that logically if I did a little bit every day it would not get out of hand the way it does and thus would impact me less.

On a perfect day I would spend more time making and moving than sitting & reading. Reading is great but I should not be spending nearly every waking hour in front of the computer. I have dozens of crafts & hobbies that I could be doing instead of what I am reading and playing games on the computer all day.

On a perfect day I would brush my teeth three times a day, comb my hair every day and shower everyday. I don't do any of those things right now and though it doesn't bother me much it matters.

What would your perfect day look like?

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
