Day 2291: Unbelievable

It’s unbelievable that I’ve never written an “unbelievable” post before, especially during these unbelievable times.

Would you believe me if I shared what inspired today’s unbelievable post?

That unbelievable scale was on my office white board to greet me on my return back to work yesterday after an unbelievable week in Los Angeles.

It’s unbelievable to me that there are so many new friends out there for me to meet. Here’s an email exchange I had with my new friend Don (featured in this unbelievable blog post from two days ago):

Ann,

It was great meeting you last evening at Dynasty! I hope you had a great and safe journey home!

Here is a link to download your set from The Tomorrow Show.

Let me know when you have it downloaded properly and that t works for you, as I’ll have to clear that space on my Box Drive.

I’m excited to start reading your blog too. You gave me a lot of good stuff to think about yesterday!

All the best,
Don

 

Don!
Thank you so much for sending this and for your kindness and welcoming good nature yesterday. I am home safe and sound if somewhat psychotically overtired.  I believe I did download the video properly  so feel free to delete it.  And here is my blog post for today with a proper photo of you:
All the best,
Ann

 

Ann,

I’m glad you made it home safely, albeit filled with psychotic fatigue! I’m honored I made your blog!

FYI Adrian and the other folks also remarked that you were an awesome lady so feel free to be flattered (but don’t let it go to your head)!

All the bestest foreverest and stay in touch!

Don

 

These days I’m letting compliments go to my head and I would advise you to do the same, my awesome new friend.

All the best,
Ann

 

Well, you are a professional so that’s sound advice!
Best,
Don

 

I wonder if Don, if he does read this blog, will find it unbelievable that I shared our email exchange. I’m doing so because I find it unbelievable that people worry about compliments going to people’s heads (including their own). I will repeat that unbelievable advice for you, here and now: please let compliments go to your head. It’s unbelievable to me that believing compliments could harm our heads in any way.

Let’s see if there’s anything unbelievable in the  new photos I am sharing with you today.

That unbelievable list of topics was written by an unbelievable social work intern named Nat who facilitated my Thursday evening therapy group while I was away.  Nat is an intern with unbelievable therapy skills and also an unbelievable song-writer and musician.  I asked Nat if he would co-write an unbelievable song with me titled “Nobody’s Perfect,” which we are going to rehearse and perform at next month’s open mic.  Unbelievable!

Here‘s “Unbelievable” by EMF:

 

Here’s “Unbelievable” by Owl City featuring Hanson:

 

It’s unbelievable that I can’t figure out which Hanson is featured in that second song.

Many people are finding it unbelievable that Luke Perry died yesterday at age 52.What’s unbelievable to you, here and now?

If you find it unbelievable that I am grateful, day after day, to all those who help me write these unbelievable blog posts and  grateful to those who read them (including you), believe it, baby!

  1. It is unbelievable that you published a blog post exactly while I was reading your other most recent post, and it’s not even 4 in the morning! I love your description of being psychotically tired oh, but I have observed that you are the most energized tired person I have encountered in a long while. I hope you have an unbelievably good day.

    • It is unbelievable that we feel so connected to each other, Maureen, even though we’re on opposite sides of North America. I love your unbelievably good comments and you!

  2. Welcome back to the Northeast, Ann. All you have to do is look around to believe it.

  3. An open mike duet…Oh Anne, that is so cool and dare I say totally believable! Thank you. All my best.

    • It’s unbelievable how consistently cool and supportive you are, JoHanna. Believe me, it matters! May thanks.

  4. I always try to believe six impossible things before breakfast, but these days it’s getting harder and harder to come up with anything that’s unbelievable.

  5. What isn’t unbelievable is that you write a bloody good post

  6. That really is a lovely email exchange, Ann. I can’t use the word “unbelievable” with it, because I think you attract very kind and generous people. I do think that you’ve said something quite profound in encouraging what seems like a very good idea, and that’s letting a good compliment go straight to the head! Why not? I’ve never really thought about it that way, but I’m going to believe it’s the way to go from this time forward. What’s unbelievable to me is that you make time for this wonderful blog on a daily basis and still have time to write songs and perform. And that’s a compliment. 🙂

    • I believe that one does attract others based on what one puts out there into the world. Also, every compliment you share reflects on you, because it does “take one to know one.” I believe in you, my lovely, profound, kind, and generous friend, and also in our unbelievably wonderful friendship.
