I have an unconditional question: How would you unconditionally fill in the blank in today’s title?
In these conditions, I like to provide definitions, so here‘s one of “unconditional.”
un·con·di·tion·al | \ ˌən-kən-ˈdish-nəl , -ˈdi-shə-nᵊl\
Definition of unconditional
not conditional or limited : ABSOLUTE, UNQUALIFIED
Yesterday, at a Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy Practice Development event — “Stealth Self-Care During the Therapeutic Hour with Doug Baker, LICSW” — I heard the terms “unconditional acceptance” and “unconditional well-being.” I unconditionally accepted and appreciated learning techniques — drawn from mindfulness and yoga — for accepting and improving the well-being of myself and also the people I work with.
I had unconditional acceptance for a helpful acronym somebody shared there — SLOW:
Open heart and breath
I felt unconditional well-being after spending two hours softening my face, lowering my shoulders, opening my heart and breath, and wilting my fingers in mindfulness practice yesterday, despite my conditional attitude towards Daylight Savings time changes.
I’m hoping for unconditional acceptance of the only two photos I took yesterday.
Michael prepared those burritos in challenging conditions last night, because he had forgotten to buy the Mexican cheese and beans he wanted to use. Instead, he substituted parmesan cheese and cannellini beans and conditionally named them “Fusion Burritos.” I unconditionally accepted them but he was more conditional about them.
I’m usually not in great condition the first Monday after a clock time change, but I an unconditional in my eagerness to get to work this morning.
Unconditional thanks to all who helped me create this “unconditional” post and — of course! — to YOU.
