Mondays; for some, they are mundane, mediocre, and even macabre if they really dread going in to work. Some people make their Mondays magnificent and marvelous by their attitude. They look forward to getting out of their homes after spending the weekend with the family. This positivity can make all the difference to their life in general and their work in particular. To make what looks tedious into what is magical takes just a minor adjustment in the way we think and view our life.

Make Mondays more mindful and satisfying by tweaking your attitude towards this first day of the week.

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- 17 October’20

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word you have to look up.” We all have words we can never spell. Use one of yours in your post and let that word drive your stream of consciousness where ever it goes. Have fun!

~*~*~*~

I rely on autocorrect for correcting my spellings. They are truly bad!

Let’s start with the title of this post; Stream of Consciousness Saturday!

If my “smart” phone doesn’t immediately prompt me with the whole of the title, I am lost. How to spell consciousness? Actually, I have difficulty with words that have a c and a s together. I flounder and have to try multiple combinations of them to get to the right spelling. One thing that helps me is if the word is not spelled correctly, it doesn’t looks right to me and I get busy trying to make it right. If I weren’t typing out my post on my phone, which apparently is smarter than me, I don’t think I would be posting so many posts a day. It probably would take me hours to write one post!

Another big help is the free version of Grammarly which tries to correct my grammar. It has no appreciation of poetry so it usually rejects my poetic phrases. But I still go on with them.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “medium.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

~*~*~

Thoughts need a medium to express themselves

Words could be either prose or poetry

Paintbrush, a pencil, or a lump of charcoal

Drawing or sketching on paper or canvas

Any way a thought finds expression is a good way

Just let them spill out, don’t cage them in your mind

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “new/old.” Use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one. Have fun!

~*~*~

Old habits die hard

New ones difficult to inculcate

Even when we know our thinking is flawed

By the force of habit, we revert to same old ways again and again

A conscious effort is needed to remedy this defect

Embrace change wholeheartedly and mindfully

Don’t be led by what used to be the norm in the old days

Become the harbinger of all that is better all that is new!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it. Enjoy!

~*~*~

What is my mind if not a container?

It saves all my memories and experiences in it

All that I have ever thought and imagined lives in my mind

My pain and sorrow, my joy and happiness, all contained

My tears and my laughter, my worries and my relief

It stores the beautiful and the ugly, faithfully so that I can

Recall and relive my prized moments and my agonies all over again

I try to keep this container locked against any leakage

I want to retain my good and not so good memories

And not lose them to old age, disease, and neglect

Affection and caution vie with each other

As my daughter comes home from across the world

Give her a big hug to welcome her home, warmly

Or maintain a safe distance, wear a mask and be careful

What to do?

I think and ponder upon this point as I am eagerly waiting

For her to arrive tomorrow morning!

I was feeling hot under my collar

It was an accident and not intentional

Yet I was afraid I would be blamed and collared

Because I had accidentally knocked over

The bottle of bleach and ruined his favorite shirt

The one my husband loved, blue with white collar

Disclaimer; Not me

What with lockdown, traveling, and being away from home, my hair has become frizzy and wild. When I brush them in an effort to tame the wildness, it just frizzes up more because it’s very humid here.

The solution was to get keratin treatment!

Today I am rectifying the situation. This photo above is similar to before and after of my hair. Now it is maintenance free!

Wash, let it air dry, brush and you are good to go. No special shampoo, conditioner or serums required. Though the cost for treatment is rather high but it lasts for 6-8 months. And it comes out to be cheaper than all the extra I spend on things to make my hair look reasonable.

Here’s to a hassle free half a year or more!
