The Best

I never thought the day would come when the Daily Prompt would mention the bathroom and then tell us to show them THE BEST! If my husband would have been asked that he would have gone off in a totally different (and unacceptable) direction. 😉

As for where I do my best thinking, it has to be in bed when I lie down at night after finishing the day. Everything has been done and my mind can relax. That’s when I come up with some ideas, something to write about, something to craft. I do have trouble sleeping in that case because I’m thinking of the details in my mind and I can’t do anything about it till the next day. But when I do go to sleep and get up the next morning I feel really excited to start the day.

I love that feeling when you have a great idea that’s in your mind and your mind is brimming with creativity and you know that the next few hours are going to be the best because you’ll be putting that idea to work. Something like when you’re really hungry and someone puts a big plate of your favorite dish in front of you.

The best conversation of the day happened this evening. My son was watching TV and my husband and I were sitting on the sofa near him. We both wanted him to come to us so we could get a cuddle. But my son came to me and told his Dad “I’m going to sit with Mama because she’s a pretty girl!” His Dad replied “Come to me also, I’m a handsome boy.” To which my son promptly replied, “No Abbu (Dad) you’re a funny clown!”

One of the best quotes I read about doing your best is by Abraham Lincoln. He said

“ I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end.”

Wouldn’t it be great if we could all do that?

  2. I do the best thinking in bed too. It’s the worst time to do it, but the only time where the mind can relax enough to process everything that’s happened throughout the day. The quote is great. We should always strive to do our best, in all things.

    • You’re right it is the worst time to do it since a good idea can keep you up for long hours but I really can’t help it that something pops into my mind when I’m lying down to go to sleep.

  4. I do my best thinking first thing in the morning – too tired at night. Also if I start writing anywhere near bedtime, ideas and revisions race through my brain all night and I can’t sleep for fear I’ll forget. You son sounds like a cutie.
