Day 2112: What aren’t you doing right now?

What aren’t you doing right now?

What I’m not doing includes the following:

  • reading the news,
  • driving a car,
  • speaking,
  • worrying about the future,
  • regretting the past, and
  • anything else besides creating this blog post.

Whenever we choose to do anything, there are an infinite number of things that we aren’t doing.  If we focus on what we aren’t doing, rather than on what we are doing, there are infinite reasons to believe that we’re not doing enough or that we’re not doing the right thing.

Here’s something else I’m not doing right now: taking photographs. However, I am sharing these:













I’m also not

  • wearing Ouija Board socks,
  • drinking tea,
  • being bitten by  sea lions or cats,
  • looking for our shy cat Harley,
  • waving a magic wand,
  • blushing,
  • writing new lyrics or music, or
  • playing the ukulele.

However, I am sharing this:

Whatever you’re not doing right now — like commenting — you can do soon, if you choose.

I am now doing this: expressing gratitude to all who helped me create this post and — of course! — YOU.

  1. I am not eating (rare), I am not driving either, I am not not reading and commenting on this post, I am not going to sit here much longer. 😀

  2. A friend of mine says, “Why put off til tomorrow what you can choose never to do?” Sometimes that’s the best way to go forward.

  3. Right now (7:30AM) I am not getting out of bed. I am patting the cat!

  4. What do your socks say?

  5. I’m not NOT drinking coffee while I don’t not comment on your wonderful blog which I don’t not look forward to every day 🙂

  6. I am NOT writing, which is what I’m supposed to be doing:-)

  7. I saw that scary times for boys video the other day…. brilliant!!!

  9. Printing up a birthday card for my daughter in law before we visit this afternoon 🙂

  10. You can only not do so much, Ann.

  11. I’m not watching that Jerome Kern movie with Judy Garland because my kitty boy Andy came by for “scritches”. If I get it just right, he licks my hand. Besides, i can hear the songs in the background. The story probably was largely fictionalized.

  13. What I am not doing is sleeping, hard to blog in my sleep
    I am also not driving because I can not blog while driving
    Lastly I am blogging because that is how I roll

  14. I’m not completing my huge pile of drafts. . . But I’m also not worrying about petty things
