Now that we’re into the month of September to the extent that it’s hitting people that we’re really into September, here’s what I’m noticing:
- The topic of “perfectionism” keeps coming up, in therapy groups and elsewhere.
- People (at least in the Northeast section of the U.S.) seem more confused than usual about what to expect from the outside environment.
- People (at least in the Northeast section of the U.S.) seem more confused than usual about what to expect from themselves.
Those are some things I’m observing. (Although, as I often hear people say, “Maybe it’s just me.”)
How about a photo to end this post?
The first thing I do, when I decide to use a photo, is to check my iPhone, to see if there are any photos I’ve taken that I haven’t used in a blog post yet.
Nope, nope, nope, nope. (Perhaps I’ll have to go to Google Images, this morning.)
Wait! Here’s one I took several weeks ago:
Why do I think this is a great photo for this post?
- There’s a specific reference to the month of September.
- There’s a mistake within the photo.
- This reminds me that mistakes can make people smile (not just annoy them).
- The sign, despite the mistake, still got the job done.
- And, last but not least, the sign shows that all things, especially inconveniences, will come to an end.
Thanks for reading, today!
