Day 3672: Other people’s opinions

One thousand, six hundred, and ninety-five days ago (but who’s counting?), I wrote about other people’s opinions. I don’t know what your opinion is about that, but here are some opinions about other people’s opinions:

.

Do you see other people’s opinions in my other images for today?

.

The Daily Bitch always has opinions and here’s what I find when I search for “other people’s opinions” on YouTube.

I look forward to reading other people’s opinions about this post and thanks to all who helped me write it, including YOU!

Day 3668: Flexibility

Flexibility is something I cherish in myself and others. Can you see flexibility in my images for today?

Day 3637: Advice

Because I’ve been struggling with some decisions lately, I’ve been asking for advice.

Advice can be confusing, as we might see in these quotes about advice:

My advice is that we look for advice in my images for today.

My advice is to not get chocolate on your ugly Christmas sweater today.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “advice.”

One last piece of advice: express gratitude whenever you can.

Day 3630: Weary

I’m weary as I’m writing this because

  • I often have trouble sleeping after my very full Thursday of doing individual and group therapy from 10 AM to 7 PM,
  • I have to keep making design decisions about our shower/bathroom remodel even after I think I’m finally done with all that,
  • I struggle balancing my needs with other people’s needs,
  • I have a very unusual heart which does not sustain me very well when I’m climbing stairs or hills,
  • this time of the year tires me out, and
  • I’m turning 70 in a few months, so what do you expect?

However, I’m not too weary to look for quotes about “weary.”

.

Today is National Weary Willie Day.

I expect to grow weary of the jokes people might make about Weary Willie Day.

I hope people aren’t too weary to look at the rest of my images today.

The Daily Bitch seems weary of niceties today.

Here’s the late great Madeline Kahn singing a weary song in Blazing Saddles (which I never grow weary of).

I hope you’re not too weary to leave a comment about this weary post.

Thanks to all who help perk me up when I’m weary, including YOU.

Day 3622: Focus

I woke up wondering what the focus of today’s blog post might be and then I thought, why not focus on focus?

These days, I have many centers of interest and activity (including group therapy for patients and providers, parenting, friendships, home repair, self-care, social media, writing, the news, word games, my original songs, travel, and cats), which makes it difficult to focus.

Now, I’m going to focus on quotes about focus.

That’s my cue to focus on my images for today.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “focus”:

Now I’m going to turn the focus to you: what are your thought and feelings about focus?

Many people recommend that we focus on gratitude, so thanks to all who help me focus every day, including YOU!

Day 3620: Comfortable

I’m comfortable writing these blog posts, after almost 10 years of doing them daily.

Practice may not make perfect (because who or what is perfect?), but practice does make me more comfortable.

I’m comfortable looking for quotes for any blogging topic, like these:

I am not comfortable with home repair decisions because I make so few of them, but a plumber is coming in less than an hour to help make our upstairs shower a comfortable space.

Do you see anything comfortable in my other images for today?

The Daily Bitch is comfortable sharing her opinion about being conformance.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “comfortable.”

Thanks to all who help me feel comfortable here, including YOU!

Day 3614: Silly

If somebody called you “silly,” would you take it as a compliment or an insult?

Is that a silly question? I’ve heard somebody say that there are no silly questions, only silly answers.

Here’s an online definition of “silly.”

What nincompoop wrote that completely negative definition of “silly?” Let’s check some silly quotes for a wider perspective.

Maybe it’s silly to share a quote today about Spring, but maybe that’s not a bad thing.

I’m sure I have more silly images to share with you.

.

Here’s “How Silly Can You Get?” from one of my favorite silly movies, Top Secret!

How silly can you get?

Thanks to all who visited today’s silly post, including YOU!

Day 3598: Control

I can’t control what other people have said about control, but I can control which control quotes I share today.

.

Do you see control in my images for today?

.

I can control what music I share here, So today I choose “Remote Control” by Wayne Shorter.

.

I can’t control what you do, but I can control how I express my gratitude to you, here and now.
