Day 1984: 1984

1984 is:

  • the number of today’s blog post,
  • the title of today’s blog post,
  • a 1949 book by George Orwell about a dystopian future,
  • something I mentioned to Michael yesterday: “It seems more and more like 1984 every day,” and
  • the subject of a Wikipedia entry  that includes this quote:

The introduction to the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt edition of Animal Farm and 1984 (2003) reports that the title 1984 was chosen simply as an inversion of the year 1948, the year in which it was being completed, and that the date was meant to give an immediacy and urgency to the menace of totalitarian rule.

What are your associations with 1984?

I don’t have 1984 photos to share, but I do have these:

What is the porpoise of this blog post?  I believe we have to purposely guard against the kind of totalitarianism George Orwell wrote about in 1984.

Here‘s 1984 (Nineteen Eighty-Four) — Thug Notes Summary and Analysis:

I hope you speak your truth, below.

This is the 1984th time I’ve expressed gratitude here at WordPress:

Day 1822: How to have fewer regrets

Yesterday, I saw this:

I didn’t write down the tips from that New York Times Magazine article, but I have no regrets about that.

I remember that  the article said regret is the second most common human emotion.  I have no regrets about that, either.

I’ve linked to the same blog post about regrets three times in this post, and I have no regrets about that.

 

Here’s one way to have fewer regrets: decide not to have them.

Another way to have fewer regrets is to spend time with people you love.

I have no regrets about my other photos from yesterday.

Think seriously and think honestly  about how to have fewer regrets.

I have no regrets about finding and sharing this YouTube video about how to have fewer regrets:

 

One more way to have fewer regrets:  Express appreciation whenever you can.

Day 1773: Regrets

Even though I talk to people about regrets at work, I have never written a blog post with “regrets” in the title. I guess you could say this (almost) five-year-old daily blog has no regrets.

At work — where I practice individual therapy, group therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing —  I invite people to let go of regrets, because regrets are about past actions (or inactions) and we cannot change the past.

In the spirit of the late Peter Sellers — who said that the only regret he had in life was seeing the movie The Magus – the only regret I have, here and now,  is installing the latest Apple update on my iPhone.  Considering how long I’ve lived, only one regret is pretty good.

I have no regrets about the photos I took yesterday.

Here’s a Cole Porter tune about regrets, sung by the great Ethel Waters:

Any regrets?  There’s room for them (and anything else) in the comments section below.

Miss Koplow regrets she’s unable to share a new photo expressing her thanks to all who helped her create this post and — of course! — to you. She lets go of that regret by sharing an old photo.
