Day 3558: Flexpectations

Last week in a therapy group, somebody used the word “flexpectations” to describe an effective coping strategy. Rather than getting stuck in and disappointed by expectations and assumptions, this person tried flexibly adapting their expectations as situations developed and changed.

Since then, I’ve worked on flexpectations while planning trips for September and May and — despite my old habit of expecting disappointment — good things are happening when I least expect them!

Let’s practice flexpectations as we make our way through the rest of this blog post.


Here and now, I have flexpectations about meteors, social media, Bomb Pops, and handshakes.

Here’s what I find when I search YouTube for “flexpectations.”

I have flexpectations about what comments I’ll get about this post and I have gratitude for all who helped me create it, including YOU!

Day 3547: It’s about time

It’s about time for my daily blog and as I look over the images I’ve collected for today’s post, “It’s about time” seems like a good title for today.

It’s about time for me to share those images.

This immediately comes up when I search YouTube for “it’s about time.”

It’s about time for me to request comments on this “it’s about time” post and to thank all those who help me create this daily blog, including YOU.

Day 3532: Doing a good job

Doing a good job is important to me, although I often remind people that we are worthy no matter what we are doing or not doing. In a therapy group yesterday, I repeated (on National Repeat Day) that we are human beings, NOT human doings, so we need to try to accept and love ourselves even when we’re not doing well.

Part of doing a good job as a daily blogger is capturing images, looking at them in the morning, and coming up with a title and theme that fits.

Do you think I’m doing a good job with today’s blog post?

The Daily Bitch calendar is doing a good job reassuring us today. And I’m doing a good job on National Hug Your Cat Day hugging our cat Joan (seen above doing a good job on her first visit to her new vet and also helping me unpack).

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “doing a good job.”

Thanks to all who support me in doing a good job here and elsewhere, including YOU!
