Today- after having been kicked on the butt by my Pilates class last night, and my sometimes more stressful than other days (yesterday being a sometimes day) I was able to do some fun stuff for me. Nevermind the fact that I have these "WOW- I am really becoming a therapist" (in a somewhat cheesy but practical way) days, today brought a few of above-mentioned moments which I will take a moment to share for you.
As I entered Brueggers I seemed to notice myself developing and using a mantra "focus on your breathing..breathe deeply, breathe slowly" the holistic therapy-ness of myself became more pronounced.
My newest technique of the day to use when the therapist isn't getting her questions answerered (which I take the non-immediate answering of my questions as either (a) being profund and thought-provoking, or (b) whoa! this girl (myself) can be confusing!!! So- the creative statement to address silence is - "if I could figure out what you are thinking and feeling by tapping into your brain- I would have to feed baby animals (because I wouldn't be a therapist).
So take it or leave it, something to think about sometime, or not.
But, the shoes. They are from the specialty shoe store and are awesome. They're the ones that are steel metallic (the fingernail image looks blue, but they are gray-black) I needed some awesome shoes to accompany my very low arch on my feet. I had been getting charlie horses and stiff calves that felt locked up. Then I realized that I sat with my calves flexed nearly all the time while sitting, and driving kept them flexed too. So I bought the shoes, and then had to go buy a pair of black alligator socks to go with them.
