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…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Putting my best foot forward

Once a year I go get a hair cut. Tomorrow is that day.

Actually, for the last four, it has been a hair shave, that is every hair on my head was cut to an mm of its life. This year to celebrate my 59th year I decided to modify the cut a little as the hot flashes and the symptoms of menopause have been on the decline letting me hope I have finally entered Post-Menopause

I decided I was going to do some research on what kind of cut I wanted. Along the way, I learned a little bit of hairdresser speak.

I look carefully at Jamie Lee Curtis and Dame Judi Dench as they are the epitome of style for the older woman but while both cuts were interesting neither was what I wanted though Jamie Lee comes close.

I like the top layer it is short but longer than the sides so there is a little on top to play with and dress up plus it is still easy to take care of. For the sides and back, I want to go shorter. You see how the hair fades from the long top to the really short area around the ears this is w…
