Losing things can result in losing confidence in one’s self and that routine has helped me find my way many times.
People often come up with interesting explanations of why they’re losing things, including supernatural interventions (e.g., mischievous or angry ghosts hiding the object). I like to normalize losing things with the expectation that at least one of my possessions will be lost at any particular time. That way, I won’t be losing my mind and I’ll be pleasantly surprised when I find something I’ve given up for lost (often when I’m searching for the latest thing I’ve been losing).
Speaking of losing things, I just now had a moment of panic when I couldn’t find this book about the type of group I’m facilitating for doctors today:
Sometimes I think I try to make my life more interesting by temporarily losing things I need (I had placed several items on top of that book). Also, I don’t want to be losing this: even if I couldn’t find the book, I would still be able to do the group today well enough.
Do you see losing things in my other images for today?
I’m losing my investment in undying worship; I’d be happy with acceptance.

One thing I’m not losing is my gratitude for all who help me create these daily posts, including YOU.
