Everything and Nothing, London, Scattered Thoughts

Monday…

I love Mondays , most people think I’m crazy but Monday for me is a beginning and beginnings are full of Hope.

Specially when outside is so lovely neither hot or cold with the sun shining and kissing your face.

Monday morning is amazing you have completed a whole another week and your toes are balancing at the edge of a new day trying to go forward, it is only a matter of time until your brain clicks so you can start the day(already loads of words describing journeys to come).

How people think it isn’t a day for motivation it boggles me as Monday is bringing you a whole bundle of new adventures , feelings  and energy.

Tube

In London whether you like it or not we are a bit paranoid ,at least I’am. Not that I’m a scardy cat but I do think about how I will react to different incidents.

This morning ,when a good crowd goes to work , I took the tube at Clapham South as usual. As per routine I scanned the people on the carriage, I always do, remembering that someone spend long time studying people from the tube and then wrote a book. Of course there isn’t any available seat, I will have to wait until Stockwell.

Leaning against the screen next to the sliding doors while listening to very loud music,my attention which was in Lala land start to focus in the chap opposite me reading the Koran or so I thought , maybe was any other book in arabic, he was reading aloud to himself (so not so laud).Therefore because I’m human and whether or not I like it, a bit prejudice I started to plan in my head for the worst scenario. They were 2 alternatives,that I had contemplated basicly one he might blow everyone up so we caput or he might produce a knife and start to stab us all.With the latter I was working out that if I put my bag (Full of standard ladies bag things)I might be able to stop the knife going through and that might buy the ladies who were wearing white linen( very inconvenient colour for the situation going on in my head), After a while of how I will defend myself and help people strategies, I looked up and realise there are far more scary men and women in here that this poor bloke which I’m judging, at the end of the day, it is Friday and is the day of worship for some religions. and they need to pray at some point during the day.

Maybe next week I will analyze the man with camouflage gear and all his murders(I think he looks like a serial killer)

Now the metal machine is in Embankment (do I get down and walk, “nah… I stay on til L Square”).

 

There are plenty of books about the underground which are very interesting.

There is a little concern

 

There is a little concern of mine in regards of my daughter .

As a mum I worried and sometimes I like to be in her head in regards of body image.

I want her not to care but be aware that she needs to pay the sufficient attention to be a healthy person. She is hitting puberty now.

I had bulimarexia when I was a kid and all started right about the same age  she is now, Issues were starting to matter and I focus myself in body image and food.

I do not want her to have the same horrible feelings that I did or be dictated by how she look like , I know I can not protect her and I know she has more sense than me, or does she?  Would she feel the pressure of what society wants us to be on the outside.

Thoughts can change and take you to very dark places,. How to stop those triggers, that’s my worry.

Of course she is awesome clever healthy and beautiful and she seems to be carefree about this, I do not want to pre empty a situation and therefore create one.

Either way I will be here for her giving her all my love and my wisdom on the subject as much as I can.

Below one  of many website about the subject if you like more info in what are eating  disorders.
