Day 3227: Costumes

Because yesterday was Halloween, I naturally thought about costumes.

Of course, we all wear costumes of some sort, every day. In a little while, I have to put on a working-at-the-hospital-in-person costume, which is different from the costumes I wear when I’m working at home or having a day off from work.

Do you see any costumes in today’s images?

It looks like it’s going to be a busy day, so I hope I choose the right costume!

Here’s what I find when I search YouTube for “costumes”:

Here’s the song that’s playing in my head as I create this “costumes” post:

Thanks to all who showed up wearing costumes today, including YOU!

Day 2774: The difference between awareness and worry

I’m aware that I’ve already written posts about the difference between worry and planning, but I’m not worried about that.  I’m also aware that despite my belief  that worry never helps (an awareness I often share, here and elsewhere), I still worry.  For example, I’m aware that I’m worrying about the upcoming USA Presidential election and I’m aware that the worry affects me, every day.

You might be aware that I’ve already shared this photo about the difference between awareness and worry.

I’m aware that my writing might be difficult to read, above, and I’m worried that I might not be able to translate that into a nice table here.

          AWARENESS                                                                             WORRY

Present in the moment                                                            Future oriented

   Calmness                                                                                    Tenseness

  Certainty                                                                                  Uncertainty

Nothing needs to happen                                              Something needs to be resolved

       Helps                                                                                    Doesn’t help

 

My awareness tells me that table is not perfect, but I’m deciding not to worry about that. Awareness  of my own worry allows me to let go of it, every moment.

Do you see awareness and/or worry in these other recent photos?

I’m aware of the time, so here is “Aware of Your Love” by Carl Dawkins:

 

Is there awareness, out there, of how grateful I am for every day?
