I don't think it's so much a mental tool as it is an emotional one, but accepting the fact I'm often powerless over the people, places and things in my life is an important guidepost. I can do my very best to control my actions and reactions to these factors, and limit the power I let them have over my emotional well-being. It's not easily done when serious BD episodes strike, though.

While you don't have to do this every day, what's the favorite part of your normal routine? Describe what it does for you.

I like watching my soaps at sunset. They're very amusing and i get pleasure out of them. I watch 3.5 hours worth so i really get to enjoy myself. I like the clothes and the decor almost as much as the story. They are all different. One is elegant, one is zany, one builds climaxes really well and one is sort of unremarkable.

What kind of eye-glasses do you like? Funky? Elegant? Subtle? Bold? Unique? Inconspicuous?

I got octagonal glasses! Woohoo! So unique! The frames are light silver so they're not too bold. They're for regular wear. My pair for reading are just ordinary tho which is too bad because that's what i wear for ZOOM and i would have liked to look at myself in something more stylish. They didn't have a good selection tho so i just went with elegant and subtle as i've been wearing bold chunky black round frames for too long. I spent a fortune tho and i don't have insurance but ever since i got my fantastic income tax refund i've relaxed about spending money.

My ZOOM group was unpleasant with the facilitator being far too heavy-handed, cutting off a young woman in a rare bubbly mood and interrogating me and another quiet person when we are adults and will speak up if we want. I really dislike her. She's Eastern European and i think @Soupe du jour has also mentioned that they are really bold, to put it politely. I'll choose to go in the room she is NOT in from now on.

Hugs to all!

I go with subtle yet colorful. My current ones are teal wtih some sand-color swirled in on the bottom.

Do you like to be warm or cold when you sleep?
