An ideal day

Image Via
The other day was a nice embodiment of a successful day full of productivity and grace and for preservation of tips and tricks to ensure more of them, I thought I'd blog about it.  Specifically, what goes into my ideal schedule:

Early to rise: I love waking up before my alarm.  I've read before this can be a sign of being well rested and I can attest this is usually how I feel when it happens.  At 6:45am, I am stirring to get up and on to my day.

Sip and smooth: hot lemon water for the win.  This is not groundbreaking insight because this is a common beverage of choice for many for varying reasons.  I love it early morning, it just makes my whole body wake up and induces a calmness that clears my mind to take on the tasks before me.  I try to meditate at this point as well, nothing too crazed or in depth, mostly simple thoughts and intentions I set forth while taking time to breathe.

Start 'er up: I get my work station and computer going and my to do lists in front of me and I align on what will be completed first, later, tomorrow and so forth.  I'm a big fan of crossing off items on lists and completing and updating them actively.  It really is the little things.  I love spending hours organizing, creating and working to bring client visions to life.

House of mmmm: I absolutely love being able to cook fresh meals often due to working for myself from home.  I take pride in creating healthy and flavorful meals and it's such a good feeling to be able to do so.

Work it out: In Florida, especially during summertime, rainstorms in the afternoon are quite common.  I loveeeeee hitting the pavement for a good sweat sesh after this glorious occurrence.  The smells, feel in the air, and yes, the coolness it helps drop over our sunshiny existence.  The timing lines up where it's around the end of my standard workday and it's pretty glorious to step away and enjoy good old exercise.  

Tuckered: when work and play are done, a strong hot shower and bed are where it's at.  We like to watch news programs in the evening #bcwereover30 now and honestly I like staying informed.  We enjoy Tucker and Hannity the most and I also factor in some Blue Bloods and Criminal Minds because I like my world problems in the form of resolution within a 53 minute window.

Things also worth mentioning regarding an ideal day for me:

I am highly optimistic and full of gratefulness for every day I wake up and my friends and family and loved ones wake up happy and healthy.  I appreciate all aspects of what a day may lend including client meetups, running errands, grabbing lunch with a friend, I even love grocery shopping.  Actually, I really love grocery shopping.  This post just outlines what I consider an exceptionally awesome day.

What's your ideal day?


Until we meet again,
M

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
