Day 3729: It all worked out

It all worked out when I married my second husband, Michael, who responds “It all worked out” whenever I tell him about my latest ups-and-downs adventure.

Here and now, I’m trying to work out the different way I’m saying “it all worked out” to myself these days, so I can communicate that to you.

For the first time in my life, I really believe it all worked out because

  • against all odds, I made it to the age of 70,
  • my son has what he needs to lead a good life,
  • I’ve made a positive difference in this world with my therapy groups (and maybe other things too),
  • I love and am loved,
  • I know that the daily hysteria of the news media is fueled by marketing strategies,
  • I don’t have to work so hard any more, and
  • no matter what comes up in the future— catastrophe, triumph, or anything in between (and most of them are in between) — I know it all worked out.

It all worked out when I gathered these images for you today.


Even on Awkward Moments Day, it all worked out.

I know it’ll all work out when I search for “it all worked out” on YouTube.


Thanks to all who help me know it all worked out, including YOU!

  1. You attract and radiate good things, my friend Ann.

  2. Yes!!! It all worked out! I am so happy for you!!! Hurray for Aaron having the skills he needs, especially. Congratulations on being a great mom! And from now on, it’s all gravy.

    One of my favorite sayings: It will all work out the way it’s supposed to work out.

    Now, I have no good way of defining that. It’s just my way of saying that we are not always in charge of how things are going to work out. We can just do what is right in front of us the best way we know how, and if the outcome is not what we wanted or expected, well, we know how to make lemonade. 😊

    70 used to sound old to me, but no more. (It’s the new 50?)

  5. I believe things have worked out for you because you’ve done so much to make sure they work out. You’re a hero to me because you remind me that, while we can’t take it for granted that things will work out, we can always be hopeful that our efforts will pay off.

  6. Things have worked out for Joan too

  7. I agree with Michael and see my life as a series of mostly ‘it all worked out’s’
