Day 2946: What gets your attention?

Now that I’ve gotten your attention with the title of today’s post, I’ll admit that toxic people and dangerous situations are getting my attention, here and now.

I find it difficult to pay attention to the positive when so many negatives — like injustice, climate change, the pandemic, and untrustworthy people with power — need attention.

Negatives naturally get our attention, including negatives about ourselves. We pay attention to the negative in order to attend to and solve problems.

However, ignoring the positives within and around us can distort our attention — keeping us overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and stressed. We need to balance our attention in order to more effectively attend to ourselves and others.

What gets your attention in my latest photos?

Good food and cats have been getting my attention for decades.

This is what got my attention during the America Celebrates Inauguration Day special:

If you leave a comment about what gets your attention, attention will be paid.

Finally, what gets my attention is gratitude, so thanks to all who help me attend to this daily blog, including YOU.

Now, on Christmas Eve 2020, I’ll be giving you a question and I hope to be getting some answers: Which of today’s photos best represent this year for you?

When I search YouTube for “giving and getting,” I’m getting this:

I’m also getting this:

If you’re giving the Olsen twins your attention, you’re getting that appreciation is love. As always, you’ll be getting both from me, here and now.

I snapped that photo during some dreamy moments food shopping last night with my husband Michael. Many moments later, Michael produced more food moments to dream about.
