Breakfast in Messy Bed!
Perfectionists have a lot of baggage that other people don’t, and that baggage comes from constantly striving to appear perfect.” Basically, it’s not easy being perfect; it’s heavy and exhausting.
When we live a rigid life in order to attain out-of-reach goals, we miss out on the organic rhythms that our mind and bodies might be moving to in a life less focused on perfection. Striving to be great … or good or even just okay.
Messy but lots of Fun!
Rather than perfect allows one to find their groove and excel, even if that means excelling with a messy sink or undone hair. And when you get to that point, and can find the liberating joy of imperfection? I would say that’s pretty perfect.
Messy Beautiful Hair!
Furnham says that people focused on perfection tend to have low self-esteem, noting also the presence of “guilt and its fellow travelers, shame and self-recrimination.” Admittedly it’s not clear if low self esteem feeds perfectionism or if perfectionism feeds low self esteem, but when I think of the more confident people I know, they are the ones unashamed of imperfection.
I for one stopped being so rigid in my cycling schedule. I now dress the way I feel like, colorful if I want to, no planned routes. Yes, I am a Messy Cyclist, and I LOVE IT!
Messy Happy Cyclists!
“If you believe in yourself, everything is possible. Live the life of your dreams. Let it be!”—dramacn
Hypocrites have “taught” me to be more careful about trusting so easily.
They have shown me that the world can be beautiful without them in my life.
I am stronger because of their hypocrite self-righteous judgement.
I love it that these people get offended by the truth.
I have learned to appreciate and love the people around me who are truthful, straightforward honest and never deceive me.
The cause of hypocrisy originally stems from insecurity.
Selfishness is a form of insecurity because an overly selfish person needs to take advantage of or withhold resources from others, since they don’t believe they can live their best life being generous and honest.
That implies that they have less trust in their ability to live a comfortable life, meaning they are insecure about their skills.
According to this logic presented, hypocrisy really only originates from insecurity if the two mains causes are insecurity and selfishness.
“People dislike hypocrites because they unfairly use condemnation to gain reputational benefits and appear virtuous at the expense of those who they are condemning –when these reputational benefits are in fact undeserved,”
Explains psychological scientist Jillian Jordan of Yale University, first author on the research.
PEOPLE BORN ON THIS DAY:
Wilhelm Maybach, 1846 (Auto Pioneer)
Among interesting people born on this day, I have to mention:
German engineer and engine designer, who invented the spray carburettor and was the chief designer of the first Mercedes automobiles (1900-01).
At age 26, he began designing cars with Gottlieb Daimler and Nikolaus Otto, with whom he developed the four-stroke engine cycle.
In April 1882, Maybach joined Gottlieb Daimler in a partnership to produce a light-weight, high-speed petrol engine suitable for vehicles.
Maybach invented the float-feed carburettor (1893) in which fuel was vaporized by passing it through a jet as a fine spray and mixed with air to produce a combustible mixture for the engine.
Maybach designed the first Mercedes car for Daimler in 1901, but retired in 1907 to design and manufacture engines for Zeppelin airships. His son, Karl Maybach, followed him in producing luxury automobiles.

IMPORTANT NOTE from Dr. Castro:
Please don’t assume that I am a Democrat or Republican just because I write or mention my admiration about certain people who are registered as such. I am neither. I hold no rigid political affiliation.
I admire the human being, no matter his/her political affiliation, religion or lack thereof.
I am a true freedom thinker who do not like labels. I don’t follow hypocrites. I admire what I think it’s admirable to me, and criticise what I sincerely think has to be denounced as a bad policy, error or a crime.
Dr. Martha A. Castro Noriega, MD

A Little Ranting (and Honesty) About Instagram Growth
Sometimes I feel like the blogging community is a sisterhood of unstoppable ladies (and some gents) who can do anything and who support each other no matter what! Sometimes I feel like the blogging community is full of nothing but Regina George clones (or worse, Regina George clones in sheep’s clothing…aka Taylor Swifts) and it makes me crazy.
I can never really decide which is more accurate and this is probably the biggest reason why I’ve had approximately 4 blogs over my adult life (2 of which were fairly popular) and just up and deleted them after I got tired of the bulls*t. I’m not at that point now but I did want to address a few things and since this is my blog, I figured this was a better place than Instagram to rant.
INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT WITH 897 THOUSAND FOLLOWERS
Are social media influencers ruining Instagram?
Instagram is a photo sharing application. In the beginning individual uses share pictures without any hashtag but now hashtags are used on such a large scale to reach the wider audience and influencers are abusing it.
Those who have more than 10,000 follower are turning into influencers. For good looking individual and especially girls is an easy job to get so much followers.
Well, there’S a solution for everything in this life, and hence to make your Instagram account grow again, get it fixed and unstuck:
1. Use hashtags the right way and frequently.
Hashtags link your photo to targeted communities, niches and keywords that people search for like #healthybreakfastideas in cooking niches. These communities, groups and people searching for content that’s relevant to them are less likely to see your posts without hashtags.
2. A CTA (call to action) tells your followers what to do next. For businesses, that “next step” should be signing up for a newsletter, going to your website or buying your product/service.
3. Have good context in the caption
4. Have a strategy for Instagram
5. When your content is stale, well, it is discouraging. Make it diverse!
