Day 2605: Feet First

Yesterday, when I was walking down the street with my feet first, I heard “Feet First” from the album Street Dreams by the late, great keyboardist Lyle Mays.

My first thought was “Tomorrow’s blog is going to include ‘Feet First’ and photos with feet!”

The first photo I took was of my own feet on the street.

And as I walked through the day with my feet first, I realized, again, how much it helps to take life one step at a time.

Here are the other feet I captured yesterday:

Now it’s time for me to step through another day, feet first.

Thanks to Lyle Mays, artists,  cats, and all who help me step through life feet first, including YOU!

Day 1622: Following directions

I admit that I have trouble following directions. When somebody tries to give me directions that are complicated, I stop listening and figure things out on my own.

Maybe I should be following directions I give others and ask for what I need. The next time I have trouble following somebody’s directions, I’ll direct them to slow down so I can take one step at a time.

Yesterday, as I was following directions during a group psychotherapy conference, I noticed these directions:

I remained calm while hearing the following directions during the group therapy conference:

  • Put your feelings into words.
  • Take interpersonal risks.
  • Let go of old, unhelpful scripts.
  • Connect with others.
  • Use the support that’s available.
  • Embrace the beautiful fiasco of being human.
  • If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito in the room.

Are any of the directions in this post worth following?

I am following directions at YouTube to share the following directions scene with you:

Please follow directions to leave a comment  below.

I am following my own directions for expressing appreciation, so thanks to all who helped me direct today’s post and to you — of course! — for following me here.
