I’ve been asking lots of nagging questions lately, including these:
- will you help me do this thing I can’t seem to do on my own?
- can you help me do that now?
- when are you going to replace your missing vaccination card?
- why are technology “improvements” usually so disruptive?
- have you turned on your new phone yet?
- should I go to my high school reunion this Saturday?
- when will people in-person stop looking like germs to me?
- what did so-and-so mean when they said that?
- why does the convection oven never cool down?
- why do I worry so much about stupid things?
- does worry ever help?
- when will I feel safe again?
- what would my late father (born on today’s date) say about the current state of the world if he were alive now?
- why do the cats keep nagging me to feed them when I just fed them?
- what are your plans for today?
- what’s for dinner?
I don’t like being a nag (especially to my son and my husband), but I have all these nagging questions!
I’ve also been asking nagging questions on Twitter. Indeed, one person there called my questions “nosey” (although not about any of these questions):
Here are two more nagging questions: which photo do you like best and why?
Apparently I’m not the only one with nagging questions.
Do you listen to the music I share here on this blog? I don’t mean to nag, but you might really enjoy these two tunes about questions (found here and here on YouTube).
Are you going to comment on this post? When?
No matter what the nagging question, gratitude always seems like a good answer to me, so thanks to all who help me share my nagging questions, including YOU!
Day 2181: How to accept personal comments
How do you accept personal comments — compliments or criticism?
As we approach the end of 2018, I’m resolving to accept all personal comments the same way.
With gratitude and joy.
I’m not saying that accepting personal comments with gratitude and joy will be easy. Compliments and criticism can be very difficult to accept, for different reasons.
Therefore, I shall now practice this new resolution, as I imagine all sorts of people giving me personal comments.
As I embrace the preciousness of this moment, I believe accepting personal comments with gratitude and joy will be good for my self care and for the care of others.
Also, it helps me to remember that personal comments are often the reflection of the person making the comment. In other words, it’s nothing personal.
I look forward to your personal comments on this post.
As always, I’m joyfully and personally grateful to all those who helped me create today’s post and to every person who visits this blog, including YOU.
