Sweet Dero-ness and the Awakening of a New Era


Got home. Crashed out on the couch for 3 hours straight...exhausted. Sheesh!No more crazy poker nights or nada for me...definitely can't afford to do this during semester...totally screws with my whole study routine!

In any case since no seeing patients today I indulged in being particularly 'dero'...a great throwback to the peak of my university days-Take One- as a carefree 18 year old...so much has changed yet some things are really just the same too as evidenced by the pic :)
Comfy Jeans, Comfy Hoodie, trademark assortment of wrist bands, and daggy 20 year old bona fide Malaysian "go out to throw the rubbish" slippers! Comfy, Comfy Comfy! Love it :-D
I have to admit that in the desire to have more professional and age credibility these days I'm not as dero as I enjoy being...most of the time LOL
Besides that I'm really enjoying this 'New Era'...at its fundamental core is acknowledging, accepting and being receptive to my own intuition as well as living according to my natural instincts, wants and needs. There is no longer a living according to what others need from me or being confined by social and cultural norms, neither am I constantly having this head vs gut war raging inside me. I'm no longer ignoring or dismissing insights that just "come to me" as irrational or any less valid than the insights I get from typically more "trustworthy" and factual sources...Which has resulted in this new sense of Stress-free Ease which I guess is ultimately what you feel when you're "in balance" and burden free! :-D
And the very strong message I am hearing from my angels is "You are entering the best time of your life...Live it wisely." No kidding, I have squandered way too much of my life already...
Other stuff...
>Sunday met up with P briefly and some of his friends...a bonafide Swede living here who was happy to endow me with more cool Swedish words :) and 2 other Aussie Malaysian Chinese girls which was pretty cool to "exchange notes"...strangely I just never seem to meet any of my own kind...
>I got in trouble again by the Chinese doc for regressing back to eating heaty foods...spicy food, alcohol...needless to say...BANNED. Hmmm, I can foresee how hard it's going to be to enforce discipline with patients of my own...I'm not exactly a shining example...reason to pull up socks I guess so I don't look like a hypocrite!
>I'm going to let my friend "go to town" with scissors on my hair cos she wants practice....should be interesting ;). It's not like she's studying haircutting or anything...oh well, it'll grow back...LOL Reminds me of the time (when I was 18) that I got so sick of my hair I just started enthusiastically with the scissors despite not knowing how...and ended up with this very peculiar missing chunk LOL...my friend had to drive over and spent 1 hour salvaging my misdirected boredom...I figure if there are any mishaps this time, at least I'm in the city...it should be easy to find someone to rectify it soon enough LOL
Have a good week everybody...I really am going to try and stick my head in the books!!

Wow MacKenzie great to read such an upbeat post.
Listening to your intuition and being in balance is such a great feeling.
Oh and I LOVE comfy clothes...that is the first thing I do when I get home, throw on my comfy clothes.
Good luck with sticking your head in the books...I have actually been reading a bit more lately (for pleasure) and loving it.
Hugs
Peggy

I love living in comfy clothes, too. Especially in the wintertime--fleece is so warm.

ooh comfy! I love my joggers and tshirts and hoodies. I would be lost without them. Oh and my cargo pants too.

Right now I am wearing Xmas PJ's and a shirt I have had since grade 6...yes, it still fits because my chest is about the same size it was when I was a skinny little 12 year old.
OMG LOL!! My word verification is flatt! How is that for universe humour?

Great pic! Love the Dr. Scholls!

Listen to your angels...enjoy your time and live with abandon (wisely could get boring...lol). I guess you have to find your happy medium!

Good luck with the hair...

Haha seems that the "comfy" aspect of this post struck a chord with you ladies...yeah doesn't it suck that there is just an "expectation" to be presentable :p

Shan...yup the universe is incredibly funny to me too...
which brings me to LOL...Caroline...

No, no no "wisely" is definitely THE operative word...knowing me, "abandon" is a BAD idea...trouble always comes to me like a heat seeking missile...the goal is to stay out of trouble(!!) :)

It's so funny...I want my life to be peaceful and calm as a lake but then I get bored easily too...LOL we humans are so difficult to please - it's so hard to get that "middle ground"!

Why are spicy foods banned? Why are they bad? BC I love my spicy food.
