In therapy, I often ask people to think about achievable next steps, especially if they feel overwhelmed, powerless, and uncertain about the future. (Sound familiar, anybody?) Identifying an achievable next step can promote a sense of control and hope.
Here and now, my achievable next steps include
- asking for more help in planning a high school reunion on Zoom,
- going for a socially distanced walk on Day 2 of my 17-day staycation, and
- writing my next blog post.
Do you see any achievable next steps in my photos from yesterday?

- is definitely achievable, because my son is an excellent teacher.

Expressing gratitude is always an achievable next step, so thanks to all (including YOU!) who helped me take achievable next steps to complete this achievable next blog post.
