Day 2972: What we have in common

What we have in common, I believe, includes a wish to know what day it is and, perhaps, an appreciation of the Daily Bitch.

Actually, I’m not sure if I have much in common with people who think they have nothing in common with others. I believe that all of us have these in common:

  • old wounds,
  • pain,
  • sadness,
  • hope,
  • joy,
  • disappointment,
  • regret,
  • anger,
  • fear,
  • anxiety,
  • worry,
  • vulnerability,
  • mistakes,
  • resilience,
  • laughter,
  • tears, and
  • exhaustion with the pandemic.

I assume that we also have this in common: a favorite comfort food.

I believe we have in common the need for comfort, wherever we can find it.

When I search YouTube for “all we have in common” I find this ad for a Denmark TV station:

… and “Little Things We Have in Common” by George Carlin:

What do you think we have in common?

Something else we have in common is gratitude, so thanks to all who help me create these daily blog posts, including YOU!

  1. I love that ‘All that we share’ video. It always brings a tear to my eye!

  2. I’m glad that an appreciation for the wit and wisdom of George Carlin is one of many things we have in common.

    The freedom of expressing our thoughts with others, is a common human need

  4. I can’t help feeling anxious over how close everyone is to each other in the “All that we share” video. How strange is that? Definitely didn’t feel like that last time I saw it, quite awhile ago.

  5. What we have in common is that the spaghetti looks absolutely delicious made by Michael, and praising kitty Buddhas such as Harley. Nice video from Denmark!

  6. pasta is my comfort food, and I think many of us have that in common. I think we all have the need to matter. to someone or to the world at large. no matter how big or small the impact.

  7. Today was a really good feel good post. We love to spread the love, so we all have that in common too!

  8. I love both the videos. And I would have loved eating that spaghetti!

  9. I do enjoy me some spaghetti and meatballs, yes, Ann.

  10. Perhaps a bit oddly, but Covid has created a sense of commonality that I’ve tapped in to, recognizing we are all experiencing grief, depression, frustration….you name it, we’re all together! We have always had a lot in common, but I see it more clearly now!
