Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Jamál (Beauty), 12 ‘Alá’ (Loftiness), 173 BE - Sunday, March 12, 2017 CE
It's the first day of daylight savings time 2017 so I suspect it will be a long day. I woke up about 7:30 AM, but didn't get any of my meds taken until about 7:50 AM. I took the two meds I'm supposed to take on an empty stomach. I don't think I should have taken them as close together as I did; however, it's too late now to undo it or worry about it. I took my walk this morning before I had coffee, put my teeth in or ate my breakfast. When I take my walk on Monday I'll have to put my teeth in before I leave the house.
I talked to Connie this morning. She's doing alright under the circumstances, however, I don't think she's fully recovered from finding her friend murdered last year. Connie's friend was another hooker who was murdered and mutilated by a "trick". This proves just how difficult it is difficult for women to survive in a man's world. The majority of "girls" on the street wouldn't be doing that if they had a choice or felt they had a choice. True some of them do it for the drugs, but not all of them. Unless you've spoken to the "girls" working the streets you don't understand them and even then it's sometimes difficult to understand; however, ignoring them or the issues that are causing them to work the streets isn't going to change anything.
I seem to be doing fine today. So far I'm still wide awake, which is somewhat unusual on the first day of Daylight Savings Time. My time sense isn't a screwed up as usual, but then this is only the first day and I don't have to be any where until Monday, March 27. That's the day I'm going to a podiatrist to get my toe nails cut. It's too difficult for me to cut them myself, which means that every couple of years or so (whenever they begin to bother me) I have to have a professional cut them. Probably better then me doing it myself.
Tomorrow is Monday and I have to figure out what goals I need to post to "Weekly Goals" . I haven't been doing well in achieving the goals I set. I think that part of the problems comes from waiting until Monday to set the goals instead of planning them on Sunday. Another issue is that I don't review the goals everyday; therefore, I'll review the goals each day to see which ones I have to work on each day. Another thing I'm going to try this week is making the goals more concrete.
