Thinking hasn’t really been helping me lately, so I’m identifying with today’s Daily Bitch Calendar.
I’m going to stop thinking altogether that
- my worst fears are going to come true,
- my fondest wishes are going to come true,
- I have any way of accurately predicting the future,
- I have any way of accurately knowing what anyone else is thinking, and
- thinking will bring me peace.
I’ve stopped thinking altogether anxiously about the future by filling in the blanks of this:
Don’t go to _____ until you’re going to _____.
Examples: “Don’t go to work until you’re going to work.” “Don’t go to the vet until you’re going to the vet.” “Don’t go to the open mic until you’re going to the open mic.”
This altogether stops me from thinking about possible outcomes, which never match what actually happens.
Stop thinking altogether as you enjoy my images for today.
I’ve stopped thinking altogether about Lobster Newburg by remembering this song I wrote a few years ago — “What Are Other People Thinking About You?”
If you’re thinking I need to get my act all together and create better recordings of my songs, my son Aaron (who is now my manager) altogether agrees.
I’m stopping this post by expressing my gratitude to all who have stopped by my blog today, including YOU.
