Day 2529: What could possibly go wrong?

These days, I don’t ask myself “What could possibly go wrong?”  because I know the answer might be:

  • every little (and big) thing one’s catastrophizing mind might think of and
  • other things, too.

Asking myself “What could possibly go wrong?”  is not my favorite waste of time, because expected and unexpected things go wrong every minute, every hour, every day.

However, there is a way of asking that question that assumes a positive outcome. For example, what could possibly go wrong if I share all my photos from yesterday?

And what could possibly go wrong if I share another version of “You’re My Favorite Waste of Time”?

Finally, what could possibly go wrong if I ask for comments and express gratitude to all my readers, including YOU?

Day 2325: If life seems hopeless

Yesterday, after I heard about the death of a patient who seemed hopeless at times but who often gave other people hope in my therapy groups, I noticed this sign:

If life seems hopeless,  look for

  •  hidden treasures,

  • signs of renewal,

 

  • neighbors,

  • beauty that lives on,

 

  • attainable and satisfying goals,

  • humor,

  • comfort,

  • inspiring stories,

  • and good conversations (here and here on YouTube).

Gratitude helps, every day, so hopeful thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.
