Day 1450: Tradishes

It’s a tradish around here for me to get my post titles from something I saw the day before.

Another tradish here at The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally is to link the rest of my photos, somehow, to the day’s topic.

There’s Danise from cardiac rehab, with her tradish stethoscope.

That’s a holiday tradish I saw posted on the wall at Whole Foods Market.

It’s a tradish around here for me to get a medical bill for an outrageous amount of money.  As is my tradish, I called the medical facility and my health insurance company to straighten this out.

Here are some new holiday tradishes:  the Christmas Bunny …

…. and the Christmas pig.

It’s hard for me not to be a Christmas pig when my boyfriend Michael does his tradish of making me a delish fish dish for dinner.

Here another portion of my friend Janet’s tradish Christmas greeting:

Speaking of cups of tea, here’s my tradish of including sayings from tea bags:

Because I  slept un-tradish-ionally late today, I have to conclude this post, right now, with gratitude to all who helped me with today’s tradishes and to  you — of course! — no matter what tradish you wish to dish about here.

Day 1438: New traditions

Yesterday morning, in a therapy group, people made helpful comparisons between old traditions and new traditions for the holidays.

Then, we shared an old tradition of drawing, writing, and otherwise expressing ourselves about the chosen topic of the group. I will now practice the old tradition of showing you what I create in my non-traditional therapy groups.

Would you like to join with me in practicing those traditions of:

  • peace,
  • letting go of guilt,
  • letting go of worry,
  • asking for what we need,
  • accepting help from others, and
  • more time with nature?

Are there new traditions you might choose for yourself during this holiday season?

I have an old tradition of sharing the photos I take the day before in my posts. Do you see any new (or old) traditions in these new photos?

Since life is to communicate, I will communicate that the birds above reminded me of this non-traditional exchange in the group yesterday:

I’m not bothered by the tweeting of birds.

I am bothered by somebody else and his tweeting.

As is my tradition, I will include some music inspired by the content of today’s post.

 

Whether it’s an old or new tradition for you to leave me a comment, go for it!

Traditional thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — for sharing traditions with me.
