Day 3121: Appearances

It appears that most people have many thoughts and feelings about appearances.

Here are some quotes about appearances currently appearing on-line:

.

What kinds of appearances do you notice in my images for today?

.

It appears that many of us are trying to figure out the importance of appearances.

Also, I have no idea what the appearance of this General Mills slogan (appearing at our local supermarket) means.

.

Here is what appears on YouTube when I search for “appearances”:

I look forward to the appearances of your comments about this post, below.

Appearances may be deceiving, but please believe all appearances of my sincere gratitude for those who help me blog every day, including YOU.

Day 3114: We all have questions.

We all have questions, especially during this time of changing rules and mixed messages about the pandemic.

Do you have questions about any of my images for today?

Do you have questions about my choice of music for today?

We all have questions and feel free to ask questions (or give answers) in the comments section, below.

There’s no question that I’m grateful for all who read my blog, including YOU!

Day 3109: Starting today

Starting today, I am going to

  • be braver,
  • not assume,
  • breathe more deeply,
  • be less afraid of other people’s anger,
  • take more breaks, and
  • only Tweet when I’m at home, because I’m close to exceeding my monthly mobile phone data.

Starting today, if I’ve overslept and I’m running late in the morning, I’m not going to feel guilty about throwing my blog post together quickly without much explanation or organization.

Starting today, if I don’t have time to include music or a video in my blog post, I shall feel no guilt.

This is not starting today, but as usual I feel and express gratitude for everyone in my life, including YOU!

Day 3106: Hugs

Hugs to all my readers!

It’s so wonderful to be experiencing in-person hugs with friends after all those months of virtual hugs (which have also been life-sustaining).

Are you getting enough hugs these days? Let’s see if there are any hugs in my images for today.

.

When I was a kid, every time Norma Tanega’s “Walkin’ My Cat Named Dog” came on the radio, it felt like a virtual hug to me.

Now I’m giving a virtual hug to the late Norma Tanega for all the joy she gave me and others.

Who would you like to hug, here and now?

Hugs and thanks to all who help me experience virtual hugs through this blog every day, including YOU!

Day 3105: Something beautiful

Here’s something beautiful I just posted on Twitter:

Yes, I would rather look at something beautiful than look at the news. Can you help me?

By the way, asking for help is something beautiful, and that’s something I get to witness in my therapy groups every week.

Can you find something beautiful in my other images for today?

When I search YouTube for “something beautiful,” I discover many beautiful things, including this:

… and this:

Gratitude is something beautiful, so thanks to all who help me blog every day, including YOU!

Day 3101: What do you do?

What do you do when you wake up to another day in your precious life?

What do I do? I blog.

What do you do when you observe so many interesting things all around you?

What do I do? I capture them and share them in my blog.

.

What do you do when you want to get happier? I watch a Gene Kelly movie.

What do you do when you have a comment about a blog post?

What do you do when you’re grateful to someone? I express it without hesitation.

Day 3038: The Oscars

I never miss the Oscars, which I’ve been watching through all my aspirations and careers, including film school student.

Last night, I watched the Oscars without our late cat Oscar, who always deserved an Oscar for best supporting cat. For many reasons, watching last night’s Oscars just wasn’t the same.

How many Oscars do you see in today’s images?

Here’s the best all-round acceptance speech from last night’s Oscars:

Yuh-Jung Youn definitely deserves an Oscar and much more.

I have no Oscars to award today but just gratitude to all who help me create this daily blog, including YOU!

Day 2959: Your Opinion

Have you noticed that your opinion is not always shared by others, including family members and friends?

When opinions are different, my opinion is that people might

  • defend,
  • declaim,
  • double down,
  • demonize,
  • discriminate,
  • distrust,
  • disappoint,
  • disassociate, and/or
  • disappear.

And those are just the D-words of what people might do!

What do you do when your opinion is different?

My opinion is that people might respond “that depends.”

Sometimes, other people’s opinions are disturbing (see today’s news for plenty of examples). However, different opinions can also be illuminating, instructive, and inspiring.

Today, I am interested in other people’s opinions about opinions AND about which video I should use of my song “Vaccine.”

In your opinion, is this one better …

or this one?

Also, what is your opinion about today’s images?

The opinions expressed by the Daily Bitch are her own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of she who creates and maintains The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally.

Thanks to you for reading my opinions, no matter what your opinion may be.

Day 2951: I got nothing

For the first time since I started blogging eight years ago, I feel like I got nothing today.

Maybe I feel like I got nothing because I’m

  • tired,
  • overwhelmed,
  • sick of bullies, injustice, and conspiracy theories,
  • done with the coronavirus (even though the coronavirus is not done with us), and
  • having some reactions to my first vaccine, including soreness and fever.

I may feel like I got nothing but I got these images to share with you:

Even when I feel like I got nothing, I got a lot.

Darius Rucker performed “I Got Nothing” at the White House seven years ago, and that’s something.

Even if you feel like you got nothing, consider leaving something in the comments section, below.

I got nothing but gratitude for all who help me blog every day, including YOU.

Day 2933: The cure for my anxiety

My wonderful friend Megan, who is always a cure for my anxiety, sent me this yesterday …

… in response to my sending her this:

These days, my anxiety is up because of animals much scarier than those kittens on the floor. The cure for my increased anxiety is capturing images like these:

Ocean scenes, cats, Michael’s cooking, chocolate, the Daily Bitch Calendar, competent leaders, and kindness are among the cures for my anxiety.

Music and comedy are other cures for my anxiety, so here is Randy Rainbow with his latest song parody:

What is the cure for your anxiety?

Many people say gratitude is the cure for anxiety, so thanks to all who help me create this daily blog, including YOU.
