If I could be invisible for just one day...

Oh, the possibilities of this day!

I woke up this morning, looked into my mirror, saw my messy bed but no me. No Me! No ME? No me I am invisible.

I decided to forego clothing, a thing I'd dreamed of, and stepped outside my house.

As I walked in the sun I thought about what I could do while no one could see me. I needed to test a couple of things so I went into a corner store. I made myself a coffee and grabbed a sandwich from the snack area then looked up into the surveillance mirror. No sandwich or coffee showed in it.

One thing confirmed, if it was in contact with my body it was invisible. I sat on the grass and drank my coffee and ate my sandwich as I thought about what to do with this power.

My first thought was to get blankets and food to the homeless but I knew there were other groups that did that... still...

I caught a bus to the grocery store and filled a cart with healthy foods. Once I had enough I considered how I was going to get it to the place I wanted to take it. In the end, I transferred it to a bin and caught a bus to the glade where the homeless spent their nights and left the bin there. As I moved away from it I saw it return to visibility which confirmed the second thing I needed to know.

Next, I went to Child Services looking for a list of families that would benefit from some food or clothing. It took me a while but I found one. I went to each house to see what would benefit them the most. Yes, I did a bit breaking and entering but it was in a good cause. Once I had the list I went to a nearby superstore and filled another cart.

Since some of the things were kind of heavy I wasn't sure I could get them to the right places on the bus. I searched around the parking lot until I found an unlocked car with a second set of keys inside it.

I loaded the stuff I'd gathered into the car and drove it off the lot. I spent the next hour or so dropping the things I'd chosen to the families from the list.

Since I had wheels I decided I would take some flowers to the Hospice. I picked several bouquets from the public parks and dropped them at the Hospice.

Since it was getting late I decided to go home and have a nap glad that I had given a little back to the community I lived in. It had been a glorious day!

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
