Chesire Posted November 30, 2020 Report Share Posted November 30, 2020 "A purple giraffe when I grow up." - 3yo Ches . I think it's high time I explore this goal. What would a giraffe do, purple or otherwise? I may need to pull in the wisdom of a 4yo I once heard as he was preparing for his birthday party, "I'm going to party 'til I'm purple!" if I can't find another way to achieve that particular aspect on my own. Giraffe food; eat what vegetable foods I can find. Or, more to the point, use what I have in the pantry focusing on vegetarian protein sources for most of the day. Meat source proteins may come with dinner since MrC isn't aiming to be a mysterious animal. Giraffe fitness; get bendy. Do mobility and flexibility work daily. Lats are arguing a bit from pull up work and my right arm is a bit unhappy about it. So, I will continue with my calisthenics training, but carefully and at a reduced level. The herd; doing things for others. This is a stretch to make the idea work, but I'll roll with it. I have committed myself to a slightly stressful number of knitted Christmas gifts. I am neither a confident knitter nor a fast one. Followed by a baby gift for my SIL who is due in Feb. Being purple; the value of simply being what I am. Still not working; still struggling with recognizing my value is not my income. This is where seeking quality of life and sources of joy come into play. I have the time and energy that would have been sucked out by work to put into lots of things, but the inertia is powerful some days. I'm looking at you, reddit. And, of course, partying will help. 13 Quote daily dare 36 35 34 32 31 30 29 28 27 26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 #8 #7 #6 #5 #4 #3 #2 #1 Link to comment
