Day 2650: Everyday Bravery

Yesterday, in an act of everyday bravery, an esteemed colleague sent me this “for your blog.”

I’m going to have the everyday bravery of suggesting more everyday bravery pins:

FORGAVE MYSELF

MAINTAINED HEALTHY BOUNDARIES

ASKED FOR HELP

SAID “NO”

PUBLICLY SHOWED EMOTION

SPOKE MY TRUTH

GAVE SOMEBODY CREDIT

CHANGED MY OPINION

DIDN’T WORRY

What everyday bravery pins might you wear today?

Do you see everyday bravery in the photos I took yesterday?

There’s another everyday bravery pin: “GOT OUT OF BED.”

The everyday brave David Byrne tells us that “Everyday is A Miracle.”

If you have the everyday bravery to make a comment, below, I’ll have the everyday bravery to respond.

Finally, here’s some everyday gratitude from me to YOU.

Day 1859: That was then, this is now

January was then,  February is now.

That was February 1st when I took those photos, this is now February 2nd, Groundhog Day, and my 65th birthday.

For those of us who are still recovering from the past, this is now the time to tell ourselves: “That was then, this is now.”  The then is still with us, but the now offers the gifts of opportunity, healing, and hope.

That was then when I watched and listened to The Monkees This is now “That Was Then, This is Now.”

 

That was my blog post for the day.  This is now my gratitude for all who have helped me get through the then and the now, including the Monkees, The New Yorker, Roz Chast,  and YOU.
