What was the best part of your day?

EndUser13 profile image

What's something that stands out for you today? It doesn't have to be huge, but I think it'd be nice if we could all take the time to appreciate something positive or something we enjoyed.

This sounds a little nerdy but I enjoyed playing a Dungeons and Dragons game online today, I have a really fun group.

Also I'm eating some really yummy muskmelon. It was advertised as cantaloupe but it is muskmelon... it's a fakealoupe!

What's going well in your day?

A good piece of chocolate is sometimes all you need! Love those Lindt truffles! I have a huge addiction to the Ferrero Rocher. I can't just have one! Haha

I usually love the off season because its so quiet. We live about 15-20 away from the beach normally and during the summer there is just way to many people to enjoy it.

Your Bbeach looks beautiful so calm!

I'm in a tourist area also. So I walk early morning to avoid the people.

September is the best time here. Probably the same for you? I love sunrise walks.

Yeah we are also in a tourist area haha I tend to avoid it during the summer months. Early mornings tho usually work out here too 😊

That's so sweet! ❤️

I had my hair blown out as I do once a week my treat for me and a manicure. Getting ready to see James Taylor tomorrow night. Friday snd a family pizza night at my parents with my nephews and their fiances, , great nephews and parents. We eat pizza and play games in the backyard.

So update: My card number was stolen and whoever stole the number had a great meal @ 5Guys Pizza halfway across the country in Ohio. Luckilly I found out as I check twice a day called reported it before it moved from pending. All good have a new card. 👌 Just didn't need the aggravation. I also woke up with a cold so I won't be attending family pizza night. Can't take the chance. Can't take the chance my parents are elderly and my Great Nephews are very young. So bummed out. I'm resting to see James Taylor tonight. Everyone must wear mask anyway.

He did cancel all overseas tours for the rest of 2022 because of covid concerns...

Luna_Child in reply to Angels111

Yes my parents started Pizza Night for me, my brother and his family nephews, fiance's and Great Nephews. It's a blast. Unfortunately I gave a cold that started this morning so I'm off limits 🙃 They also started Chinese night for my bro, my sister in-law and me once/ month. They started this out of Covid as well. We were all vaccinated and boosted.

I will be sitting in my seat tonight with my friend at

James Taylor tonight wearing the mask everyone has to wear and my James Taylor tee shirt. Yea yea yea 😊

This sounds like a great day! Have fun!

Thank you 😊

Making sure I eat breakfast and opening up my blinds, letting the sun come in!

Opening the blinds on a sunny day is the best. My dogs love sunning themselves looking out the door & windows

I need to open blinds more often.

I had a nice morning with my mom and sister. We went away for 2 days and decided to take a boat tour. It was really relaxing and needed.

On the water 💦☀️

Beautiful ocean picture

Thank you! I stood in the front of the boat the entire time. The breeze and the view made the heat alittle more bearable. Lol 😂

I'm not really made for the heat, but it was very nice.

Beautifully done. I love ocean / beach pictures. It was

merlin0413 profile image
merlin0413 in reply to Dolphin14

Kind if like a ferry boat? Lol I have no clue what it was honestly. Haha it was like a ferry but no cars.

We took a tour of the Navel Academy & The Chesapeake.

We came to Washington D.C for the Bridgerton Experience yesterday and then we decided to stay a night in Maryland my mom loves Annapolis and the water. We left our husband's and took a 2 ladies trip haha

There were a ton of sailboats out and a few navy ships in the distance.

It very much was :)

I do too, honestly any beautiful view I'll take it. I'm not a beach goer unless it's off season but my mom loves the ocean.

I had a really rough last 2 weeks I was really in my head with my anxiety still kind of am but we decided to go away for 2 days and just breathe. It's helpful and I'm super grateful to be able to run away for a bit 😊

So true!

The best part of my day, yesterday in the uk, was going to my yoga class as I feel soo relaxed afterwards… and hugging my children 😊

Angels111 in reply to Nad1971

Yoga can be helpful. Hugging one’s kids can melt a parent’s heart.

Very true. I have not been practicing for very long, but I think it helps….😊

merlin0413 in reply to Nad1971

I love yoga, I was going daily but I stopped for a bit because of the cost. I really miss it, I feel like it makes my day start off in a more positive way.

So glad you had such a nice moment with your kids and a relaxing time at yoga! ❤️

I yoga at home. Don't give up your practice. You tube has some great teachers

I yoga at home, also. There is a particular woman that I stick with, but there is a vast number of other yoga videos on-line, too many infact, it can be hard to pick just one. 😉

merlin0413 profile image
merlin0413 in reply to snowdayze

I really need to get into it more at home. There are so many I have no idea what to watch haha I just usually so what I learned in class

snowdayze profile image
snowdayze in reply to merlin0413

It takes commitment, I guess. Going to a yoga studio works well if you have a buddy system with a friend, just in case you decide to forgo a class or two or three. 😄

Dolphin14 profile image
Dolphin14 in reply to snowdayze

Agree. I've got my favorites and I venture off sometimes and find new ones

In the mornings they have yoga on the beach. I'm wondering if I would be brave enough to venture off and do that. It's in the full sun though. I'm not a fan of sitting in the sun. So maybe that's my excuse to stay in :)

I'm spoiled, I want a soft mat in a shaded room with air conditioning, lol! I think the sand would make me itch and the sun would be too hot. Yep, I'm spoiled. ☺️

merlin0413 in reply to snowdayze

Right? I live the beach view but I'm so weak I need air and a soft mat for sure! Lol

merlin0413 profile image
merlin0413 in reply to Dolphin14

I feel like I follow thru better if I go to a place sadly. I would Luke to do it at home more often. I honestly need to get myself into a routine it would benefit my anxiety too I'm sure!

Dolphin14 profile image
Dolphin14 in reply to merlin0413

True many people find it hard to stay disciplined at home. It is about routine and yes it's so good for anxiety

merlin0413 profile image
merlin0413 in reply to Dolphin14

I really struggle with follow thru. I just need to try harder.

EndUser13 profile image
EndUser13 in reply to merlin0413

Anytime I struggle to follow through with anything, I force myself to do something tiny (a couple of dishes, vacuum a small area) and then go back to it. Small steps so I don't get overwhelmed. It's like cultivating a good habit, which is easier to keep up with than the pressing idea of "oh god I just HAVE to do allll this"

merlin0413 profile image
merlin0413 in reply to EndUser13

That's a good idea! My problem is my anxiety isn't constant so.. since I have health anxiety for me I'm only anxious when something happens like if I get sick or hurt. When I have nothing happening it's like I'm normal.

So for instance I started getting migraines in my early 20s so I had Luke a week of migraines and they sent me for an mri so I was sure I had a brain tumor. But the second I see proof that I don't I'm fine.

So when I'm fine I don't follow thru with a routine it's when I'm not dine that I'm like ok I need to try this and this... I know that part of anxiety is maintence tho. So I just struggle.

I really was doing well when I was in yoga it just has a way of calming you down. I will most definitely go check it out.

I am grateful for Bible Study with a long time friend. I am grateful for two different adults whose act of kindness yesterday was very much appreciated.

Catching up with friends.. Talking to my boo😁. Listening to my fave Playlist on spotify 🎶.. And my physical health is good 😊.. I have crohn's since I was 13, I have not needed medication for years. I had 2 pseudoaneurysms found randomly.. None have come back..

😊Thanks

Had a good morning-good mood, good attitude. Walked 10000+ steps, then decided to trip on a curb-thank goodness noone saw me. Hand busted up, arm scraped, and my right knee swelled to the size of a grapefruit. Happily it's down to a tennis ball. Feel like heck, but I'm dogsitting my little granddog this week-11 year old dachshund and just having her makes me smile :) So she's the highlight of my day :)
