I didn't have a topic for today's podcast. I don't really have a new topic for today's blog. I'm winging it! I usually do - 'wing my life'. Wait, can you say wing. Is the word and phrase just winging it? Oh who cares. I hope you know what I mean.
I was thinking about it this morning as I set out for my walk - recorded my podcast - that aren't we all winging it? I mean, sure we set out with a plan sometimes, we plan a party, our grocery list, our school, careers, and we sure hope everything goes as desired. But does it? Does it always? How can anyone possibly control everything - isn't there always a chance we will find ourselves "winging it" at some point in the day? I wing it all the time. Okay, if it's not a word - it is one now.
I just realized I haven't made up any words lately. I was doing that for a while. Okay - hold on - how about wingdingdoodle? ( meaning - you just fly by the seat of your pants - because you know you can't control everything - and you sure hope it all turns out well). That's a long definition.
I winged it today. After my walk - ooops - forgot to include today's podcast - hold on... -
There! That's taken care of - now I may continue...
I'm in a bit of a goofy mood. I'm not sure where it came from because I've been thinking a lot lately and the worry bug was noodling me a little (I keep telling it - shoo! Shoo!). But I feel alive. It's not a bad feeling. I mean it's a little weird, because I'm feeling - loosey goosey, which way will the wind blow, okay mind could you let me have this nice goofy feeling - having run on sentences circling my mind that don't make sense - mood. Deep breath.
Hang in there with me.
Okay - let's focus on my Botanic Organic project for a moment. I didn't try another product yet. I did use the Tangerine & Lemon cleansing oil last night - even though I didn't wear makeup yesterday - and it felt just as good. Of course - you can use it anytime. But it REALLY does take makeup off. It's like magic. I used the Cucumber & Calendula nutrient mist - which is still such a perk up to my face. I also used the Calendula Blossom and Rose Night cream moisturizer before I went to bed. Whisper: Okay - I winged it a little with the products yesterday. But guess what? Still lovely. But of course - follow instructions - the products reveal better results. You know, I need to say - I was off my game yesterday with my skin care regime and I didn't use the Chamomile & Lavender Facial Cleansing Spray and the Raspberry & Green Daily Defense moisturizer. My face felt it. At the end of the day - I actually felt my face telling me - you forgot something. I missed it! I still need to try the cleansing grains - and the bath salts. Now, I'm dragging my feet cleaning out my bathtub. It needs a lot of muscle power - and I haven't had much of that lately. You know that intense scrub scrub scrubbing? Yuck. That really needs to be done before I try a lovely soak. My bathtub is old and in need of some TLC. It just doesn't make me feel like getting in it. But I'm going to see what I can do - and get back to you on that.
Ooooh, I did manage to clean out a couple drawers. Nothing got thrown out - but there was a little bit of organization accomplished. Whisper: I tend to toss stuff in drawers at some point - and all the clothes get mangled. I know. I know! I told you I was a work in progress.
Today's selfie is going to be one of my feet. No, not really. My sneaker toes are in the picture. But the picture is fabulous. I posted it yesterday on Instagram. It makes me happy. I came across this sweet message on my walk yesterday and I think it applies to today too. Heck, let's apply it to every day! Here it is:
I think it's fantastic. I made it super big so you can see. (Whisper: I don't make pictures with my face in it that big. But this one, yes! ) As I write this right now - I need to tell a story. I took this picture yesterday, as I mentioned. Later that morning I took my son to swimming class. When we got there, the teacher wasn't there. The teacher forgot! Now...these things get my knickers in a twist. I was a little irritated. For one thing, wtf? I confirmed this class with him and I couldn't believe it - he just forgot. Grrrr. He felt bad, and apologized. (insert: Winging it moment) Luckily, a woman who runs the front desk, let us in, just so my son could practice. I was thrilled. I felt the time wasn't going to be wasted. I mean, we were here, my son was in his swimming gear. But my son said no, he didn't want to be in the pool without his teacher. He felt embarrassed. I encouraged him to get in. (Okay - I was a bit pushy. I really wanted him to have his exercise - and also I felt this was a teachable moment - for both of us - turning a bummer moment into something good). He and I went back and forth for a while - but I won out. I convinced him to get in. I told him - he would see once he was in there - doing his thing - he would feel great. Well guess what? I was right and he told me I was right. Oh yeah - moms - you know that feeling after you've "mama beared" a situation - and you feel a little guilty - but then it turns out you were right - and you did the right thing - and you feel really good about your parenting skills? Oh that feels great! Anyway - he had a great time. After he exercised he wanted to stay in longer to practice....hold on to your butts....handstands! He was having such a great happy handstand moment - in such bliss - practicing over and over and over again. I gave that to him. Well, he gave that to himself. I shouldn't take all the credit. But I helped. I just thought about that beautiful moment after attaching this picture to this blog. It makes me smile.
I hope you all have many happy handstand moments throughout your day. I hope you have those delicious AHA moments - those yummy moments when your decisions are spot on - things flow - and you feel.....wingdingdoodley!
