If I had used the word “traumatizing” often in the past, I must not have known the real meaning behind this word until May 17, 2017. Since I started specs-wearing from the age of 8, I built up the phobia of deteriorating vision and blindness. I maneuvered around darkness in my own familiar surrounding well (i was literally half blind with my severe myopia), but I feared, and still fear darkness to the extent that I might suffer a panic attack should I not control the paranoia.
I have been wanting to do what I like so much and since I’ve been petsitting for a number of years and enjoying the dog walking/running sessions, I thought why not do it for an income? On top of this, I have also just signed up for a basic dog grooming course to see if I actually have a flair in this and also perhaps provide additional services during daycare or housesitting.
An unplanned lunch choice ended up to be a 6-course one. As a reward after the city hike and also as the bebeh’s birthday treat, we winded up at Mouth Restaurant initially for a 3-course meal but a look at the 6-course Boston Lobster & Seafood Set menu made us cancel the previous order right away!
Sweating it out is our new kind of sexy! After the urban hike from Katong to Kallang, we decided to take a longer hike this time to test our stamina since we normally capped at 10km, and also to indulge in some nature view along the way! The weather had been really cranky but we made it through without too much delay! Our feet carried us all the way from Katong to Tanjong Rhu, Marina Barrage, Gardens by the Bay & Marina Square! Where the cars can go, we can go too (almost)!
I wanted to do something for me so during my birthday month, I gifted myself something that I never would have done in the past – an emotional and energy detox session. I spent $140 on this one hour session, which some might think why is it necessary? 5 years ago, I most probably would spend this sum elsewhere, be it on a spa session or shopping.
Not sure if it’s due to age, I have started to be more mindful towards my health – physically, mentally, emotionally and even spirtually. My heart and mind have been calling out for a positive change. I thought a “release” will do me good. How can I load more positive onto me without unloading the negative baggage first?
