An Ideal Day: At Work -Photo Essay

This is part of a goal-setting series I created. I found pictures on Pintrest that represented what I would like to see in a perfect day- the idea is to find a way to make this lifestyle a reality in the future. This first one is “An Ideal Day: At Work.” The name is self explanatory, it is what I would like to see an average good day look like that requires me to work for a living. I would be interested to hear suggestions people have on what, exactly, this kind of work could be labeled as or where to find it.


9:15 AM I wake up a little before my alarm goes off and stretch. I can hear the fall of rain outside my window.

9: 30 AM I put on my slippers and go to the bathroom- brush teeth, hair, contacts in and meds taken. Smile at the bathroom mirror because I know it is going to be a good day. I pour some juice, heat up some sausages and toast some bread, smearing cream cheese on it.

10:30 AM I have my clothes laid out ahead of time from the night before. They are tailored and form fitting but colorful and still playful.

10:40 AM As I drive to work, I play some fun music and find myself singing along to it. I have grabbed the lunch I made the night before out of the refrigerator before I hit the road.

8:30 PM I disrobe and draw myself a bath. I allow myself to relax and reward myself for the hard work put into the day. I practice my gratefulness. I enjoy
the calm alone time.
