Day 2231: Be Well!

Be well, my dear readers!

I don’t know about you, but it helps me be well when others wish me well.



In my therapy groups, we create lists of what helps people be well:



Doing a job I love — helping others be well — helps me be well, too.

Yesterday, I captured photos of other things that help people be well:











Here‘s Outkast with “Hold On, Be Strong.”

The first comment about that YouTube video is this:

Pro tip: Play this on a loop when you need a pick me up. Works like a charm.

Here‘s Outkast helping others be well at the 2004 NBA  All-Star game:

What’s going to help me be well today is taking care of some Presidential tasks.

What helps you be well?

Gratitude helps us all be well, so thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. You’ll never be an Outkast 😉

  2. A positive attitude all around does help my disposition for sure. Thank you so much, Ann.

  3. Music definitely helps me be well, and several years ago I heard Big Boi of OutKast was being considered to play Jimi Hendrix in a biopic, which I’d still love to see.

  4. I would like to say I am well but sadly I am not that well my body aches so much my knees and my left arm hurts so much 24/7, that said I am pretty happy with my life and that means a lot

  5. My husband is a retired beekeeper, so I like to end my letters and cards to friends with “Bee 🐝 Well!” Nothing quite like a sincere wish for wellness from a dear friend! So, dear Ann, Bee 🐝 Well!!

  6. I am well, thank you bell

  7. You might as well be well because the Daily Bitch couldn’t care less

  8. I love the idea of going to the “skills lab” to learn stuff like: A dose of patience. How to skip terrible, awful meetings. How to not give a crap.

    You know…the important skills of life.

  9. I also really love the blessing/greeting “Be Well!” I have noted that historian Michael Beschloss, when appearing as a commentator on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show, always concludes with “Be well, Rachel.” I had never heard that before in such a public forum and now I wait for it, and think it’s lovely. Be well, Ann!
