Day 2698: One Day at a Time

Even though I’ve been doing this blogging thing one day at time for two thousand, six hundred, and ninety-eight consecutive days, I’ve never before written a post titled “One Day at a Time.”

One day, at a time when twelve people were doing a remote Coping and Healing group online, many talked about taking the coronavirus pandemic one day at a time.

These are all the other images I captured one day, at a time:

Can’t sleep ?  Consider taking these days one MOMENT at a time.

In one day at a time, here and now, I will be:

  • Doing individual therapy online,
  • Facilitating another Coping and Healing group remotely,
  • Watching a taped episode of “A Late Show with Stephen Colbert,
  • Taking Oscar to the vet,
  • Taking photos for this blog,
  • Eating a home-cooked meal prepared by my husband Michael,
  • Conducting a Zoom Board Meeting of the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy,
  • Doing my best to let go of stress, anxiety, and fear,  and
  • Taking it all one moment at time.

One day at a time earlier this week, I saw this online article “Museum Asks People to Recreate Paintings with Stuff They Can Find at Home, Here Are the Results.”

I enjoyed those recreations one at a time, including this one:

Here‘s Gloria Estefen with “One Day at a Time.”

I look forward to reading your thoughts and feelings about this one-day-at-a-time post  one comment at a time.

One expression of gratitude at a time to all, including YOU.

In order to weather this weather, I’m not reporting to work today. Instead, I’ll weather whatever weather there is on Friday and work that day instead.

My internal weather report, here and now:

I’m weathering whatever weather there is, whether or not I feel strong, ready, or brave.

What’s the weather report where you are?

Here’s my pictorial  weather report for the day:

How’s your internal weather, after that pictorial report?

Here‘s one of my favorite tunes from Weather Report, live:

 

Whether it’s rain, shine, or snow, my thanks to all who helped me create today’s weather report and to you — of course! — for weathering it.
