The other day, I went to a free workshop by a friendly acquaintance Ron Helman, entitled "12 Big Questions that Will Change the Way You Think". This fellow is what they call a Life Coach, which is about as common in Santa Fe as pizza in New York. But while one might be tempted to dismiss such a thing as "woo-woo", it was actually quite a pleasant experience. I'd been feeling a bit down because I'm meeting some resistance with my third book idea, and it was a nice chance to get out of my self-focused bubble a bit.
One of the most fun exercises was one where we were prompted with this question: "Describe your ideal day, beginning with 'I wake up...' ". I found it such a fun exercise that I decided to illustrate it and share it here. It also makes me wonder...what would be YOUR best day? Feel free to leave a comment!
CakeSpy's Best Day (an illustrated daydream)
I wake up.
I search my unicorn themed apparel for something to wear then select glasses to match my shoes.
I go to yoga and we do all the poses I'm good at.
I bake a cake...
and then I write an awesome blog post.
I take a walk with my sweetie and my pug, porkchop.
Then we go to dinner at Jambo Cafe.
Afterward hop on a plane to Paris for a religieuse pastry. If Paris is not possible on this particular day, I can compromise: a flight to Philadelphia, to get ice cream at Bassets, would also do quite nicely.
What is your ideal day?
