I received this mission message yesterday on a bag of salty but relatively healthy snacks:
I didn’t read about their mission because I thought I was doing enough for their mission by buying and consuming their product. Also, I’m on vacation this week, so my mission is to relax, focus on self-care, and re-energize for my work as a group therapist during these difficult times.
So many people are asking me to join their mission these days, that I have to choose my missions wisely. For example, when I chose a birthday fundraiser on Facebook this year, I wasn’t sure which mission to join. There were so many worthy missions I considered, from racial justice, to environmental activism, to animal protection, and so on. I eventually joined the same mission I joined for my birthday fundraiser last year, Everytown for Gun Safety.
Join us on our mission to
improve the world, one step at a time,
focus on self-care, so you have the energy to engage,
accept all feelings,
set and maintain clear and healthy boundaries,
let go of worry, guilt, shame, and harsh judgment, and
observe and appreciate all you have.
Reply requested, and please listen to “Mission Impossible” while you consider choosing to accept the mission of joining us in the comments section, below.
Join us on our mission to express gratitude and love, every day!
In my life, I have encountered many strong recommendations.
These strong recommendations have included the following:
I strongly recommend you get a third litter box for your two cats.
I strongly recommend you bring Oscar to a cat eye specialist because when I look in his eyes, I can’t see the back of his eyes.
I strongly recommend you make an appointment with our cat ophthamologist before you go away on vacation, because she books up way in advance.
I strongly recommend you do not send in financial statements when applying for a student visa.
I strongly recommend you make an appointment for the one-day super priority visa service as soon as possible.
I strongly recommend you use a professional visa service company to help Aaron get his visa.
I strongly recommend you don’t worry about Aaron getting a student visa in time to start his studies at University of Edinburgh in September.
I strongly recommend you bring your Lasix pills with you to Scotland, in case you eat food that has too much salt.
I strongly recommend that you wear a mask on the plane, since you recently had pneumonia.
I strongly recommend that you choose a more comfortable mask.
I strongly recommend you forget about work when you’re away on vacation.
I strongly recommend that you have heart valve replacement surgery as soon as possible, despite all the conflicting recommendations you’ve gotten from other doctors.
I strongly recommend that you notice that some of those recent strong recommendations contradict other strong recommendations.
I strongly recommend that when people make strong recommendations conflicting with other recommendations or with your own intuition and experience, that you get other recommendations until you feel comfortable.
I strongly recommend that you look at my photos from yesterday:
I strongly recommend that if you want explanations for any of those photos, that you ask.
