My Perfect Day

The Perfect day for me

I was thinking while at work the other day about how much i would love to have a "perfect" relaxing day 

I would sleep til maybe 10 am, take a long hot shower because there would be no one to bother me 
My perfect day would start by me waking early — 10 am is early, for me — feeling refreshed and restored. I haven't had a relaxing night of sleep in months and often awaken far later than I had planned, feeling guilty, stiff, and still sleepy.After a hot shower, I'd put on a comfortable outfit, including nice socks (it's amazing how wearing a pair of nice socks can improve my day), comfortable skirt, a tag-less t-shirt (really, the ones without itchy tags in the back of the neck are wonderful), and my favorite shoes 

My morning routine begins with a glass of orange juice followed by breakfast at the table while doing my devotions,  An omelette with waffles or homemade cinnamon rolls sounds very nice.
After that, I'll go for a walk around the park just around the corner. By this point, it's nearly 12 pm and I've prepared to meet the day.

I like to read a couple of news sites early in my work day. Because it's a perfect day, however, I won't go to work. Instead, I'll do a little writing, a little blogging and a little bit of miscellaneous work on whatever project I find interesting or useful that particular day. Two or three hours of solid concentration should help me make good progress.

Around 1:30 pm, I'll start feeling hungry, so I'll break for lunch. It's probably leftover pizza. I don't mind leftovers at all, so why not. I feel like a Chai Latte from Starbucks is in order, i head to the mall to get SB and do some shopping

Around 4 pm, I will  start to head out to meet my hubby and daughter for dinner

On a truly perfect day, I would accomplish what I want and need to accomplish. I would feel no external obligations beyond those which I actively sought out for myself for that day. I would spend time with the people I care about and not distract myself while they talk to me — I'd have real conversations with them, when we look each other in the eyes and really think about what the other people are saying.

The day would end with a relaxing evening with my hubby and daughter doing anything that we wanted to do whether that will be playing games or watching tv, then we would crawl into bed ready to take on the next day because we are so relaxed and stress free

In reality there is no perfect day, there are days that we can feel totally relaxed, refreshed and we can take on the world, but this world is far from perfect, I cannot wait to have a perfect day in heaven :) 


  1. What an interesting perfect day, I think if you could include some elements of that in your life now you might create a near enough "£perfect" day ;)

  2. I would love to get up at 10AM in the morning - and then have an afternoon nap :)

  3. This my friend was a perfectly written post! Heaven is what I'm waiting for too!

  4. Sounds like a perfect day indeed! PS: I also like to start my day with orange juice ;)

  5. I once read an article that we should write out what a perfect day would look like and then aim for that. LOL. But I truly find joy in my work which is what Ecclesiastes is all about. I try not to stress about my work and life, and enjoy things as they come. But of course, I sometimes fail at that too. Love to you, Amy

  6. Hmmm. I think we can take some elements of "our perfect day" and see what dreams are dormant in our hearts. Like wanting to spend more time with family, or writing a bit more, or take care of ourselves a little better. But the truth is the only perfect day is in heaven. We need to embrace perfect moments on this side of it!

  7. In my perfect day I would be able to sleep in until 9am. I would get an hour of writing done every morning, go for a run (who am I kidding, more like a brisk walk), get all our kids homeschooling done, have an family fun activity planned for the evening, a stellar dinner done BEFORE my husband got home and time for a nice hot bath at the end of the day with bath bombs and epson salts... a girl can dream. LOL


Thanks for the blogging Love
