A Day in the Life: July 2016
I apologise for pushing this A Day in the Life post back, but I just got caught up trying to settle back in after our trip.
Today Nick and I spent a long time waiting at the doctors, he hasn’t been well since the end of our days in Singapore, but has yet to do some tests to see what is up. I had a super disappointing seafood noodle soup as a late lunch, and I regret spending the $13.90 on it, as I could barely finish it and it was just tasteless. Something tells me I usually like the way these noodles taste for a few bites, but then hate it…
Not an eventful day, but sometimes we have days in our lives that aren’t interesting to write about. Remember, A Day in the Life is not a pity party – we all have dull days and one of the best things to do after an ‘unsuccessful’ day is to reflect on it. So this month I have decided to ask a few questions related to mindfulness and clearing your mind. It’s OK to share what you are thinking – we’re all friends here. 💖 Feel free to join in the linkup by adding your link at the bottom of the post.
What is on your mind?
Quite a bit. My dry flaky eyelid, which has been struggling to hydrate itself for a week. How much money I owe Nick for our Europe travels. My dry hands. My pineapple notebook that I carried with me in Europe but never wrote in. What do I write in it now?
Where has my Opal transport card gone? I have two, but I have misplaced one.
What will the shoe store say to me when I complain about me brown shoes that were water-ruined? Will they at least accept store credit, or just blame the customer for wrongdoing?
What is making you anxious? Are the things on your mind making you anxious?
I hope Nick is alright and will get better soon. I am concerned that I will have wasted a lot of money on my shoes and there will be no chance of a refund or exchange because I have worn the shoes.
It’s getting late so I ought to sleep soon.
I don’t know what to expect of my work trip to San Diego next week.
The things I listed above are making me a little anxious, yes.
What is making, or will make, you smile?
Perhaps if I was not so anxious. I just need to remain calm. It would be great if I could see Nick right now.
Did you make any difficult decisions today?
Not really, but I feel like I internally made a decision to avoid seafood noodles.
Is there anything you have realised that will make things difficult for you soon?
We’re moving forward with wedding planning – that’s all I’ll say for now. I just don’t want to get stressed out.
What is something new that happened today?
I didn’t have my engagement ring today, because yesterday we took it to the jeweller to get it resized. It did fit on my finger, but because of my large knuckles, it is hard to get the ring over my knuckle without grazing it. And I do want to be able to take it off in cases like swimming, or going to the gym, even showering. When I was younger I imagined I would wear mine all the time, but now it’s so precious I don’t want to risk damaging it. <3 I can pick the ring up in a week, I’ve gone up half a size. :) My finger feels naked without it though. :(
What are some positive things that happened today?
I had some nice tea, and I got to cuddle Nick in the morning.
What can you do to help yourself relax in the short-term?
Sleeping is always good. I like to remind myself to take one thing at a time, because it stops me from panicking. Taking things easy is important.
