These men are each working the different gifts they were given. None could ever be exactly like the others . So, you do you, and I’m going to do me, best I can. :)
I’ll grab the pillow. You grab the lamp. Let’s do this, Don Draper!
the reason for which I wake up every morning
Can we start a petition to have him record audio books? I could listen to that voice all day.
It’s hard to say anything to adequately describe the impact of her books on my childhood. All at once, her novels captured my imagination, taught me, and understood me. I cannot go back and be a child again, but I can revisit her works and the feelings they inspired.
Illusions are dangerous people.
They have no flaws.
I came here from Provence…
For eight months— no, more than that— a year…
I sat in a cafe, I drank coffee…
and I wrote nonsense in a journal.
And then, somehow…
it was not nonsense.
I went for long walks…
and I met myself in Paris.
You seem embarrassed by loneliness—
by being alone.
It’s only a place to start.” —Sabrina, 1995 film
My boyfriend and I have different world views. In many ways, our differences enlighten us by giving us new perspective or knowledge. However, on one key matter, we find ourselves at odds: television.
He is the type of guy who, upon coming home from work, would like to sit on the couch watching TV all night. He does not want to exercise. He does not want to explore the world. He does not feel the urge to improve himself.
Unfortunately, his habits have affected my lifestyle. I watch more television now than I ever did before or would care to admit. For me, this lifestyle does not equal contentment. Thus, I inaugurate an experiment:
- Start with yourself. Before you can convince anyone to change, you must first change yourself.
- Reduce. How many TVs do you have? If it’s more than one, reduce them by half at first. Get down to one TV over time.
Bedroom. Whatever you do, get the TV out of the bedroom. We’re pretty sure there are other ways to entertain each other in the bedroom without a TV.Never had one there. Although, I need to work on banning the smart phone too.
- Schedule. Schedule your viewing. Don’t watch television unless you have scheduled your viewing at least 24 hours in advance. Ask your husband to attempt this with you for 10 days (an experiment of sorts).
- Limit. Limit yourself to X hours per week. Track your viewing. Do this together for 10 days.
- Friends. Invite friends over to watch TV with you (your scheduled viewing). Then talk about what you watched afterwards. This can strengthen your relationships.
- Replace. Replace TV with other activities. Just getting rid of TV is boring—what else can you do together instead of watch television?
Anyone have any thoughts on this topic?
