Day 2286: Don’t forget

Don’t forget

  • to tip your server,
  • to look both ways before you cross the street,
  • to look before you leap,
  • the words when you’re singing at an Open Mic (like I am tonight),
  • to save your notes while you’re typing them after you get a new work computer that’s supposed to be better but which is making your life a living hell (as I told the Help Desk yesterday),
  • to be careful not to step in fresh concrete (as I did on Wednesday but apparently so did lots of other people),
  • that lots of other people share your anxieties and worries (which people discover in therapy groups),
  • the richness and diversity in the world,
  • that travel expands the mind,
  • that it’s baseball season again,
  • to do your homework,
  • to reframe unhelpful thoughts,
  • to let people know you appreciate them, and
  • to share what you love with other people.















Don’t forget these “Don’t Forget” songs (here, here, and here on YouTube).

Don’t forget to comment on this post.

I don’t forget to express my gratitude at the end of my blog posts. Thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU!

  1. What was that?

  2. Don’t forget to read Ann’s blog before heading of to work!

  3. We never forget the ‘little people’…….. those who serve us in shops or restaurants. It doesn’t cost anything to smile and say thank you.

  4. I so strongly relate/identify with your list Ann.

  5. A quote by Dave Barry that I’ve never forgotten is, “If someone is nice to you but rude to the waiter, they are not a nice person.” I hope I always remember to be nice to you and to the waiter. I’ve also never forgotten the very first thing by Dave Barry I ever read, from his travel guide, in which he says, “Belgium also contains people who call themselves ‘Flemings’, although fortunately there is no actual place called ‘Flem’.” Memory is very useful for storing such facts.

  6. I love the idea of the world being a cat. It fits perfectly!

  7. A great list of reminders! Have fun at open mic night:-)

  8. Is that the start of a sinkhole?
    If the world is a cat, most of us should be feline fine, while in Australia they’ll be having a ball.

  9. I certainly do hope you didn’t forget the words at your open mic performance, but if you did, I have a feeling you’d be able to improvise! Don’t forget to get some rest! 🙂
