Why "71º & Sunny?"

I consider 71º to be the perfect temperature. Not too cold and not too hot. I also love perfect sunny days. The vast majority of days are not 71º & Sunny and yet, all days were created by God's hand and they are still gifts, even if they don't fit my ridiculous definition of perfection. My struggle with OCD has at times imprisoned me in an impossible attempt to achieve perfection. I'm now learning to love all kinds of days that don't even come close to 71º & Sunny.

Please leave me a comment below. I really want to know what you are thinking!

  1. Well said. It's funny you would post this, as I was just saying something very similar to my husband last night.

  2. I seem to be hearing this more and more. It's grating. I guess we'll just have to continue educating.

    Are you going to the OCD conference this year?

    1. Sadly, no, the conference doesn't fit into the budget this year. Maybe next year. Are you going?

    2. No, too costly for me too. Maybe one day.... :-)

  3. I completely agree! In fact, I just had an incidence where I ran into this the other day. Someone on Facebook had posted a picture of their childs organized closet and the end she put #mom has ocd.
    Now I guess I don't know if she truly has OCD, and I truly hope she does not have it...but it made me think that people think OCD is just some quirk where people have the need to be "organized", and that is why we need all the education we can get to people out there! It frustrates me, because I felt the same way too...people don't truly understand how devestating this condition is and how much of an impact it has on suffererers lives. And I'm not trying to make it sound like OCD is worse than anything else out there...I think any chronic condition or health issue has it's challenges, but for some reason people can empathize or relate to those with physical conditions better, than with those of us who struggle with mental conditions. On a side note, I know we have exchanged many comments on our blogs, and if it's not too weird, I would love to friend request you on Facebook if you're not opposed!

    1. Hey Hopeful! Your comments really hit home for me! Physical illnesses get a lot more response from others. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they get the support, but we could sure use a little more here in anxiety land!
