Day 2558: Success

One thousand, five hundred, and fifty-three days ago (but who’s counting?), I published Day 1005: What is success?  Because I’m feeling self-confident today, I think it’s time to revisit success.

Here’s a quote from Emerson about success:

Reading that, I believe I have succeeded.  My success would be complete if you could admit that you’ve succeeded, too.

I had success taking these other photos yesterday:

Even though Michael says he doesn’t like tilapia, he has great success in transforming it into delicious and nutritious meals.

Here‘s Squeeze launching MTV Unplugged with great success:

It’s love.

The day before Thanksgiving here, I now aim for success in expressing my  profound thanks to all who help me create this daily blog, including YOU!

Day 2432: Choose to focus on good things

Yesterday, a good friend chose to send me this good thing to focus on:

It’s a good thing that soolooka created that, so that Vivian could send it to me exactly when I needed it.

Let’s choose to focus on good things in my photos from yesterday:

I chose to focus on that donkey last night during a good long walk with Michael and Aaron. I chose to focus on its expression and to share that the good donkey looked a little judgmental to me.  My good boyfriend and my good son chose to disagree.

I choose to focus on this: civil disagreement is a good thing.

I choose to focus on this great rendition of a good song:

Here‘s the original version of that good song:

Choose to focus on good things in a comment, below.

I always choose to focus on gratitude at the end of every post, so thanks to all who helped me focus on the good things here and — of course! —  to you, my good reader.

Day 2219: It’s What’s Inside That Counts

Yesterday, when Michael and I were inside a Target Store, counting the moments until  my son was going to arrive from inside the United Kingdom to inside Boston’s Logan Airport, I saw this inside the Target gift section:

IMG_1688

Inside my mind, I counted several ways that “It’s What’s Inside That Counts” could count, counting on that to be the title of my next blog.

No matter what our appearance at whatever age, it’s what’s inside that counts.

No matter  what we’re wearing, it’s what’s inside that counts.

We may hide,

duck,

and pretend to be something we’re not, but it’s what’s inside that counts, so we might as well be honest.

Let’s see what counts inside the rest of my photos from yesterday.

It’s what’s inside Aaron’s room that counts — it’s Aaron! (And he’s majoring in mathematics —  does that count?)

I’m counting two songs titled “It’s What’s Inside That Counts” — one from Cinderella 2:

and this one from The Mighty Boosh:

It’s what’s inside that counts, so please leave your inside thoughts and feelings inside the comments section, below.

Countless thanks to all who help me create these posts and  to my readers, who — of course! — count.

Day 2134: _____ your way to good health

Last night, as I was window-shopping my way to good health, I saw this sign:

IMG_0904

As I read my way to good health, I thought, “I haven’t gotten eight hours of sleep for decades!”  But I didn’t want to worry my way to bad health about that.

Instead, I figured I would blog my way to good health today by filling in the blank of “______ your way to good health” in other ways, including:

  • Walk
  • Talk
  • Hope
  • Vote
  • Think
  • Feel
  • Share
  • Create
  • Smile
  • Laugh
  • Cry
  • Eat
  • Drink
  • Sing
  • Dance
  • Write
  • Read
  • Work
  • Rest
  • Socialize
  • Meditate
  • Exercise
  • Watch
  • Participate
  • Accept
  • Change
  • Move
  • Love
  • Live
  • Imagine
  • Express
  • Act
  • Believe
  • Picture

Do you see ways to good health in my other pictures from yesterday?

IMG_0888

As I watch my back,  I DO want to know how you’d fill in the blank of  “_____ your way to good health.”

Watch your way to good health with these two videos (here and here on YouTube):

Please comment your way to good health, below.

It’s time for me to thank my way to good health, so here’s gratitude for all who helped me create today’s post and for YOU.

Day 1980: Now what?

Now, what happens when you accomplish something?  Do you ever ask yourself, “Now what?”

Now what should I do after performing my first original song at an Open Mic? Now what can I do to top that? Now what makes me think I have to top that?

Now what gets in the way of my being here, now, and enjoying all the now has to offer?

Now what photos do I have to show you?

IMG_0256

Now what do you do during busy times? Now what do you think I was doing when I took that photo?

IMG_0257

Now what wants to be chosen, heard, stuffed, stitched, fluffed, dressed, named, and taken home?

IMG_0258

Now what are we fighting about if we are all human?

 

IMG_0260

Now what helps you stay cool? Now what is a museum of ice cream?

IMG_0261

Now what kind of person would wear that t-shirt? Now what kind of roll is that?

IMG_0259

Now what music does that Meowsic make?

Now what video could I possibly include here?

Meow what video could top that?

Now what are you going to say in a comment?

Now what should I end with, except gratitude for the now, the meows, and YOU?

Day 1746: Appropriate

Is it appropriate for me to tell you that I’ve never written a blog post with the word “appropriate” in the title before? It is appropriate to reveal the inspiration for today’s title?

IMG_4148

That’s a sign for a parking lot where I work. I don’t park there. Does that mean I’m not appropriate?

When I read the news these days, I see a lot of inappropriate behavior, which contributes to my  sense of chaos. Is it appropriate to ask whether we can agree on what behaviors are appropriate?

Are these photos appropriate?

Is it appropriate to discuss stool/poop in mixed company? Is it appropriate to use the term “mixed company”?  Was it appropriate for Michael and I to both wear that cat head at Target and then not buy it? Is it appropriate for me to share what I write during group therapy sessions about topics like self esteem? Is it appropriate for me to reveal that one of the group members talked about “dumb asses” before I wrote down some thoughts about self esteem?

Is it appropriate for me to bombard my readers with so many questions?

Is it appropriate for me to use this photo to introduce today’s music?

IMG_4143

Please leave an appropriate comment below.

Can we agree that gratitude is an appropriate way to end all of my daily blog posts?
