Day 2459: Above all

Above all my other photos from yesterday, this one stood out to me:


Above all, we need to respect each other.

Above all, a good enough sense of safety allows us to trust other people and ourselves.


Above all of us is the sky.


Above all, I need to get to work on time today so I can do individual and group therapy for my patients, so here are all my other photos from yesterday:

















Above all , which is your favorite photo from that batch?

Above all, I’m focusing on this one …


… because I used that image yesterday to reduce the power of a critical person, whom I used to call a “dragon.”  I figured if I could imagine them as a little yappy dog (instead of a dragon who can wreak lots of destruction and fiery havoc),  they would have less power over me. Above all, this technique worked!

Above all, what music should I choose for today’s post?

Above all, I assume my readers might choose Imagine by John Lennon.


Above all, I can’t resist also sharing this:

Above all, if you don’t like that, you can always turn it off.

Above all, please accept my gratitude, here and now.

  1. I go for Michael’s dinner

  2. Yes, it would change so much if we did this

  3. I appreciate Michael below the ladder above all, Ann.

  4. Yikes! I hope the adventure with the too-liong ladder worked out!

  5. There’s so much here that I believe in or am simply in awe of, including Michael’s confidence with a ladder that makes me dizzy just from the pictures, but I also think of Polonius’s advice to his son: โ€œThis above all: to thine own self be true…”
    That’s especially true when being true to ourselves means we shift our perspective a little and imagine Chihuahuas instead of dragons.

  6. Above all I go for a hidden pussy cat!

  7. puella33

    Above all, I like the cat being protected by the drape.

  8. Great post! Lots to think about, above all. I like the sky, the music and the mute button. Your dragon to yappy dog is something Iโ€™m definitely going to try. People are catching on to my squishing head sign. Thanks Ann. What a good neighbour you are here in this blogging community.

  9. Great idea with changing the dragon, Ann. Just it works for you ๐Ÿ™‚
    Your beauties are always no. 1 to me.

  10. Above all……………….
    I have forgotten my comment
    So now I leavel

  11. Above all, I think that being kind to yourself right now is paramount. You give so much to others, I’m glad to see that above all, Michael cares deeply and makes you the most wonderful meals! ๐Ÿ™‚
