Everything you think is wrong

Everything You Think is Wrong Day can be interpreted in a few ways. It may be a day when nothing goes right and everything seems to go wrong the whole day! If this is the case, it also recognizes that these types of days are sometimes inevitable. One shouldn't be dismayed, because these type of days will pass. A perfect example of this is that Everything You Do is Right Day is coming tomorrow!
Everything You Think is Wrong Day can also be a day to acknowledge there are things we don't know, we have imperfections, and we have much to learn. We may not know basic knowledge about certain fields of study or not know specific pieces of information, or we may need to improve our moral outlook or correct blind spots when it comes to being compassionate or understanding of others. But the day can be looked at as an opportunity, not as a reason to be down. We all have the opportunity to fix things and to learn, which will make us better people in the long run.
Spend the day reflecting on things you can improve on, specifically when it comes to your thoughts. What fields of study do you lack basic knowledge in? Perhaps you could join a class or read a book on a topic where you have much to learn. Reflect on your views of others, your values, and your overall disposition. Where can you improve? In what areas would you benefit from a better outlook? Focus your energies on an area where you most think you need to improve. Perhaps you could pick up a self-improvement book to help you on your journey.

Some of you will recognize this as a day to listen to those mean nagging thoughts that drag you down and figure out how to better control them. That is what I'll be doing- listening to my inner voices & telling them on paper why they are full of shit.

Thinking about something in endless circles — is exhausting.
Overthinking can take many forms: endlessly deliberating when making a decision (and then questioning the decision)(Professor), attempting to read minds, trying to predict the future, reading into the smallest of details(me), etc.
People who overthink consistently run commentaries in their heads, criticising and picking apart what they said and did yesterday, terrified that they look bad — and fretting about a terrible future that might await them(me)
‘What ifs’ and ‘shoulds’ dominate their thinking, as if an invisible jury is sitting in judgement on their lives(me). And they also agonise over what to post online because they are deeply concerned about how other people will interpret their posts and updates.
This then is the thinking I need to focus on today!
Have a great 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: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
