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:

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
