WHY DON’T YOU? #204

Monday:

Why don’t you do extensive research on something you know absolutely nothing about? I don’t even know how I got there, but I spent hours researching hydroponic gardening yesterday. I thought it was something fairly straightforward, but there are fascinating nuances and arguments about this method of raising plants. I have a hydroponic herb garden, and it was just riveting to know more about how it worked; I learned so much about what I never knew. Such fun!

Tuesday:

Why don’t you make yourself a really difficult password on Amazon so that you don’t do what I did last night? I had a lovely bottle of expensive wine and suddenly I ordered two-hundred dollars worth of books. That was a surprise the next day to find the receipt in my email. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ They’re getting here this afternoon and I can’t wait to dive in. But honestly, I should not have treated myself so thoroughly. 

Wednesday:

Why don’t you investigate CBD as a health aid? This substance derived from hemp, which is not psychoactive, is legal in all fifty states and is the definition of a hot topic. Ever since my multiple sclerosis diagnosis, I have been open to absolutely anything that might help me. CBD didn’t do much of anything but I noticed that I didn’t feel so stressed when I tried it. I just bought my sister some CBD pills at the GROCERY STORE and she went from wanting to be voluntarily committed to an insane asylum to daydreaming about kettle chips. This substance is miraculous. Give it a try. Please.  

Thursday:

Why don’t you really do what I suggested last week and observe the Ramadan fast? Put it on your calendar for next year. It’s hard. But the fast has really made me reconsider what I need. I’m not Muslim and I have broken the fast repeatedly with unrealistically justified sips of water and sticks of gum, but this religious rite has really forced me to think about the vices I enjoy. Limiting yourself is kind of like retraining your mind and body. I didn’t make it to the end of the fast, but the experience was one I will never forget.

Friday:

Why don’t you head to www.zennioptical.com and treat yourself to several new pairs of glasses? They’re so affordable and they’re usually of decent quality. I haven’t purchased glasses from a store in so many years; I don’t even remember the last time I’ve been to one. I just ordered a couple pairs the other day, and I’m loving my new brass rimmed glasses. They’re not perfect, but they were less than fifty dollars and I can see fine and there are no scratches and I am blessed. Shop, reader.
