Day 1958: What’s your favorite season?

What’s your favorite season?

My favorite season is spring.  That’s why I’m taking this next week off from work, so I can enjoy the flowering trees, the glorious colors, and the warmth of my favorite season.  This morning, I’m leaving on a fast train for New York City to enjoy two days of my favorite season with one of my favorite people, Jeanette.

What’s your favorite picture of these, which I took during my favorite season?

Here are Alex Horne and the Horne Section asking and answering “What’s Your Favourite Season?”

My favorite way to end a blog post — no matter what the season —  is with thanks.  Thanks to all who helped me create today’s seasonal post and — of course! — to YOU.

Day 1957: Choices

In every therapy group I facilitate, people have choices about how they participate and about what topic we choose to focus on.  Yesterday, the group members had many choices and decided on the topic “choices.”

My choices of photos, above, include only what I chose to reveal in group.  My handwriting is not choice, so I choose to type my choices of what I shared.

What is your personal experience of choices?

I like having choices.

What helps with choices?

Self-care.

Realizing what the choices are.

Checking out choices with others.

Self-confidence.

Realizing I’ve made good choices before.

Recognizing that most choices are not irrevocable.

Before the group, I made these photographic choices:

Are my photographic choices good enough?

Many people I know feel guilt, shame, and regret about choices they’ve made in the past. I invite them to make these choices, moving forward:

  • Recognize that they were doing the best they could at the time and
  • Forgive themselves.

As always, there are many choices of songs to share.

You have the choice to make any comment you choose.

As always, my choices for ending a blog post include thanks to all who helped me create it and — of course! —  to YOU, for making the choice to visit here, today.
