My Dream Day

This post is part of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. You can learn more about it here:

Today’s topic:

My Dream Day. Describe your ideal day. How would you spend your time? Who would you spend it with? Have you had this day? If not – how could you make it happen?

NOTE: This is the post for Saturday, April 14. I’m doing my best to keep up with the HAWMC topics day by day, but it’s proving hard with full time work.

This is an awfully hard topic, because it lends itself to my bitterness about all that I’ve lost. Still, here is my attempt.

I’d wake up (late!) and put in a little time for yoga and a workout.

By the time I got out of the shower, I’d be greeted with freshly ground and brewed coffee and some fruit. Which I could eat without issue, because I wouldn’t have to swallow any meds down with it.

I’d enjoy my morning listening to music, catching up on emails and my twitter timeline. Then I’d get dressed and pretty myself up. Then I’d head over to a coffee shop to curl up with a good book. A paper one, of course, because there wouldn’t be an issues with my wrists acting up.

I’d have lunch in a cute bistro, ideally with a friend. I’d be able to eat whatever I wanted, because I wouldn’t have to worry about gastroparesis or handfuls of meds irritating my stomach.

I’d have a job with flexible hours so I could head into work whenever I wanted. I think I’d still want to have a job to feel like I’m contributing to society, but maybe just part time.

I’d have all the energy I needed to make myself some fresh dinner. Without eating restrictions, again. (Sense a theme, do you?) Hopefully, someone would be around to eat with me.

After dinner it would be time to curl up with a nice glass of wine and that book again.

I’d head to bed where I would promptly fall asleep instead of lying awake because of the pain all night long.

Then I’d wake up actually feeling rested to do it all again!
