Things to do in 2022

Things to do in 2022 Breathe in – breathe out Listen more – talk less Pay attention To the needs of the undemanding Look people in the eyes (it’s all you can see nowadays) Breathe in – breathe out Curb my dog – and my tongue Soften my sharp edges Trim my nose hairs - frequently Tell people I love them Even though they know it Stop arguing with inanimate objects And Breathe in – breathe out John G.

I like that stop arguing with inanimate objects, it is such a waste of energy. And I love the repeating line - (breathe in - breathe out). Now that gets down to the basics. Enjoyable read, John.

I like this a lot, John. So important to keep breathing in and out! And, above all, never argue with something that cannot talk back!
