Today it was just my mom pointing to my stack of laundry and saying "This is unacceptable". I don't think you can imagine how much hurt that little phrase caused me. I was sitting there studying and my mom came in and said "This is unacceptable". And suddenly I was aware of everything that I needed to get done and how far behind in everything I am. I just can't get ahead and I can't please anyone, not even myself.
I have laundry and I need to clean my room. My bathroom needs to be scrubbed yet again and I should probably do some vacuuming. I have 10 chapters to finish by the end of the month if I want to even hope to graduate by the end of 2012. I have work this weekend and my exercise class on Friday. My friend's birthday is this weekend and I need to get her a gift and fill my car with gas. I need to fill up my prescription soon and when I get my check I need to take it to the bank. On top of that there are the everyday things that need to get done and I just can't keep up. I don't have the energy. I'm losing my mind.
You know what I need? A life coach. Someone to help me get my shit together because I sure can't seem to do it. Which brings me to the main topic of the day:
The 5 People I Would Love To Have Dinner With
1. Laurie Gerber- President of Handel Group Life Coaching. I really need someone to help me get my shit together because I sure can't. I've heard a ton about the Handel Group lately, all of it very positive. If I had the money, I would hire one of their life coaches on the spot and have them help me whip my life into shape. I would love to sit this lady down and talk about the concept behind her business and how it works. Maybe get a few life pointers from her to make my crazy life easier.

3. Audrey Hepburn- It is impossible not to love her. When you look up "classy" and "a lady" in the dictionary, you see her face. I would love to talk with such an iconic woman.
4. Buddha or the Dalai Lama- I would accept a dinner chitchat with either one of them. As you can see by my rant I don't handle stress well. I do meditate, but I'd like to know more and I'd like to use their inspiring calmness to motivate me to strive for a more peaceful mind. If you want to know what to get me for a gift, I'd really like a book on Buddhism.
5. John Keats- Have you read his poetry? I would love to hear him read one of his poems. It's a shame he died so early. He had such great possibility. I'll have to stalk him in the afterlife so I can ask him about the symbolic meaning behind his poem "The Eve of St. Agnes".
