Day 3562: Never seen

I’ve never seen

  • a Supreme Court like the one we now have in the USA,
  • the current level of wealth inequality,
  • so much misinformation deliberately disseminated on social media,
  • a storm like Ian,
  • a cat like Joan, and
  • a movie like Metropolis.

I assume you’ve never seen most — if not all — of today’s images.

I’ve never seen National GOE Day before but I’ve seen many people who have dealt with abuse and trauma, so I’m glad this days exists.

I’ve also never seen National Name Your Car Day, but I have seen people who have named their car, including my good friend Deb (“Oskah”) and me (“M.L. Carr”).

I’ve never seen this “Never Seen” video before.

I look forward to comments I’ve never seen before.

Thanks to all who helped me create this “never seen” post, including YOU.

Day 3559: Rough seas

Rough seas are everywhere, it seems.

That “rough seas” sign showed up for the first time yesterday in my neighborhood, which is by the sea. Our seas are blessedly calm this morning, as I read about the rough seas in the rest of the world.

I do believe that rough seas make good sailors, but they also make people sick. I hope we can navigate our way to calming the rough seas before it’s too late.

Do you see rough seas in my other images for today?

.

Rough seas make the Daily Bitch even bitchier.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “rough seas.”

Thanks to all who navigated their way through rough seas to be here, now.

Day 3558: Leave nothing behind but love

Love is a wonderful thing to leave behind — a sentiment left behind last night by Yogi Tea:

I’m wondering how my beloved son and heir, Aaron, will feel if I leave nothing behind but love. I think he’ll remember me, no matter what.

Let’s see if this blog post leaves nothing behind but love.

I have nothing but love to leave behind for the Daily Bitch Calendar.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “leave nothing behind but love.”

Besides love, I always try to leave behind gratitude, so thanks to all who help me leave behind a blog post every day, including YOU.

Day 3551: Ruminating

Here and now, I’m ruminating about

  • my health, after I had a TIA last week on vacation,
  • my anticoagulant medication,
  • travel insurance,
  • my dental appointment today,
  • those aspects of my job I really dislike doing,
  • our upstairs bathroom, which has been out of commission for over a year because of water damage,
  • the change of seasons from warmer to colder,
  • the USA midterm November elections,
  • the death of Queen Elizabeth,
  • pain and suffering in the world, and
  • things I cannot control.

I guess it makes sense that I’m ruminating over things I can’t control, because otherwise I could friggin’ do something about them!

When I am ruminating, it helps to identify a simple next step I can take (including sharing my thoughts so I’m not alone with them).

Do you see ruminating in my images for today?

I was also ruminating about getting good tickets on National New York day for a new NYC production of the Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along, but tickets actually don’t go on sale until October.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “ruminating.”

I also find this

… and this:

I look forward to ruminating on your comments about this Ruminating post.

Thanks to all who know something about ruminating, including YOU!

Day 3549: I Saw the Light

“I Saw the Light” is a song I love by Todd Rundgren.

My husband Michael and I danced to “I Saw the Light” after I got home from a trip where I saw the light at Disney World, the gorgeous islands off the Southeast coast of Georgia, and (unexpectedly) a Georgia hospital after I had a TIA.

During a long and restorative walk in my neighborhood yesterday, I Saw the Light.

.

For me, I Saw the Light means that I’m in the moment, observing the beauty surrounding me, and realizing again an important lesson I learned when I was young: life is short and every day is precious.

I Saw the Light when I was capturing all these other images for today’s blog post.

On this precious day when people might be talking like pirates while eating butterscotch pudding, what does “I saw the light” mean to you?

I saw the light while gathering expressions of gratitude for all those who have helped me see the light, including YOU!

Day 3519: Different perspectives

One thing I’ve learned as a group therapist is that different people can have very different perspectives on the same issue.

Not surprisingly, there are many different quotes on different perspectives.

.

Do you see different perspectives in my images for today?

I have different perspectives on air travel, which I hope will be nationally accessible next month when I fly south to Florida and Georgia.

Here’s what I find when I search YouTube for “different perspectives.”

I also find this:

.

I look forward to the different perspectives that appear in the comments section, below.

Thanks to all who have different perspectives, including YOU!

Day 3518: The proper response

As a therapist, I often think about the proper response to what people share in groups and individual therapy. In the therapy biz, we call that “an intervention.” Sometimes, focusing too much on the proper response or the “perfect” intervention can get in the way of being present in the moment with people.

Because I’ll be offering groups to the doctors at the hospital where I work, I just joined The American Balint Society and signed up for their online training program, so I can give the proper response when I facilitate Balint groups for the first time.

The Daily Bitch Calendar today is all about the proper response.

.

Do you see the proper response in any of my other images for today?

I don’t know what the proper response is to those National Days, especially since I’m trying to lose a little weight before my trip in September.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “the proper response.”

I hope you know that any comment you choose to leave is the proper response to this post.

The proper response at the end of my blogs is always gratitude for YOU.

Day 3508: What’s worth celebrating

Last night on Twitter I asked, “What’s worth celebrating?”

The answers I’m getting are worth celebrating. What’s worth celebrating in my images for today?

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “what’s worth celebrating.”

I also find this:

Thanks to all the wonderful people out there who are worth celebrating, including YOU!

Day 3504: Where we are

Where we are is here, now, and the Daily Bitch Calendar has an opinion about where we are.

Where we are IS getting hot and I hope we get out before it’s too late.

Where we are is the place in this post where I share my other images for the day.

This is what I find when I search YouTube for “where we are” on National Underwear Day.

.

Where we are is the end of the post, where I express gratitude to you, no matter where you are.

Day 3502: The whispers of the universe

This teabag tells me I should be guided by the whispers of the universe.

I’m listening, teabag, but could you please tell the universe to speak up a little?

What are the whispers of the universe telling us in my other images for today?

.

The whispers of the universe are telling me that people on Twitter are going to have a lot to say about National Grab Some Nuts Day.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “the whispers of the universe.”

I also find this

… and this:

I look forward to the whispers of the universe in the comments section, below, and thanks to all the universe whisperers, including YOU!
