Day 2689: Savor the moment

Savor the moment, especially when the moment provides wise guidance for every moment.

Savor the moments I captured during a moment-filled and rare day off from work yesterday.

The best part of knowing that I’ll be dead someday is it helps me savor the moment.

Here‘s “Savor the Moment” by Sara Renner.

I’m savoring the moments in “Savor the Moment” that are a perfect match for the moments in today’s blog post.

Now I’m looking forward to savoring your comments and I hope you savor my gratitude for everyone who helps me savor and share moments on this blog, including YOU.

Day 2492: Resistance

Apparently I have some resistance to writing about resistance, because when I search for “resistance” in seven years’ worth of daily blogging, these are the posts that appear:

Day 2075: Et tu Brute?

Day 1842: The Least

Day 731: Small  Change

Day 479: Super Recovery Woman, revisited

Day 425: Truth Teller

Day 320: Show up, be gentle, tell the truth

Day 217: Strangers

Day 174: Surprised by joy

Day 153: Do I Dare to Tweet a Tweet?

Day 149: To Tweet or Not to Tweet (is that the question?)

Day 73: The Fear of Feeling “Too Good” — Part 2

Day 69: To Do Lists (How NOT to get overwhelmed)

Day 50: Sleep — Needs, History, Distortions, and a Wish

This may be a sign of resistance, but I don’t see how those posts are about resistance, defined as following:

resistance noun
re·​sis·​tance | \ ri-ˈzi-stən(t)s \

1a : an act or instance of resisting : OPPOSITION
b : a means of resisting
2 : the power or capacity to resist: such as
a : the inherent ability of an organism to resist harmful influences (such as disease, toxic agents, or infection)
b : the capacity of a species or strain of microorganism to survive exposure to a toxic agent (such as a drug) formerly effective against it
3 : an opposing or retarding force
4a : the opposition offered by a body or substance to the passage through it of a steady electric current
b : a source of resistance
5 : a psychological defense mechanism wherein a patient rejects, denies, or otherwise opposes the therapeutic efforts of a psychotherapist
6 often capitalized : an underground organization of a conquered or nearly conquered country engaging in sabotage and secret operations against occupation forces and collaborators

Perhaps I have a resistance to writing about resistance because it can be so exhausting to deal with resistance.  When I encounter resistance (definitions #1 and #3 ) that doesn’t make sense to me, it can affect my sleep and perhaps my natural resistance to disease (definition #2).

I often notice my own resistance to:

Yesterday, I had some resistance to taking photos, so I have only these images to share:

A peace sign is one of my favorite signs of resistance.

Here, here, and here there are resistance songs on YouTube:

 

Do you notice any resistance to leaving a comment?

I’m never aware of any resistance to my expressing gratitude to all who help me create these daily posts, including YOU.

Day 2044: Meaningful

Here’s a meaningful thought: This is my first post in many years of daily blogging that’s been explicitly meaningful. I mean, I’ve written four previous posts focusing on meaning (here, here, here, and here), but never one with the word “Meaningful” in the title.

It’s meaningful to me where “meaningful” comes from today:

I saw that meaningful poem last night in the window of a shop in Brookline, Massachusetts.  Apparently, that store held a meaningful contest for meaningful children to write meaningful poems, including these:

All of the images in today’s blog post are meaningful to me — otherwise I wouldn’t have taken them.  However, one seems particularly meaningful to me, here and now.

Which one of those photos do you think is most meaningful to me?  Even more meaningful,  which photos are most meaningful to you?

According to the Top 10 Most Meaningful Songs this is #1:

I look forward to your meaningful comments.

Meaningful thanks to all who helped me create today’s meaningful post and to you — of course! — for reading it.
