a daily breath...

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .


Sadly, our voice
is not always
strong, or not always
there ,when it
is needed.

It is hard to know
what to say, or
how to say it,
so often we
remain silent.

Silence stops the
process of
but it does not
stop the thoughts.

Mondays are just young Fridays

A sign I’ve been glancing at, daily, since I noticed it a week back at a regular coffee stop where I try to begin my day with a dark roast cup of bravery.
   I try to take the time, every morning, to scribble out my current considerations, deliberations, and contemplations on images and memories that have come to me in my dreams and in reality.
   If your first meal of the day is the most important, shouldn’t your first thoughts be as well?
   Take time to write them down. It’s important. What you are thinking affects how you continue to navigate your self through the coming hours or weeks.
   “The bravest thing you can be is yourself.”
   How much courage is required to make it through the remainder of the day? Is a single cup of coffee enough to provide the fortitude required to step further into the day?
   It’s a good start.

       Often we find promise
in the unexpected, only to be
   disappointed by the reality
          that presents itself.

    Tomorrow lacks the
certainty of yesterday,
but leaves enough room
       for hope.

What will this day provide?

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

Looking For Answers

Posted on June 16, 2017 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

What are you feeling?
What are you thinking
about your self,
or how you function
as a person?
Do you think about
how you feel?
How do you feel
about how you think?
What would you
like to think? How
would you like to feel?

Sometimes you have to ask yourself
the questions you might not
have an answer for.
Other times you have to feel more
than think.
The answers will come, but so will
more questions.
That’s how we function as people.

When is the last time you sat down
and asked yourself the questions?
When was the last time you wrote
down the answers?

We will be looking for answers, and
getting in touch with our emotions
and memories in the upcoming
Finding Your Voice
Making The Choice
a 24-day journaling program.

Whether you keep a journal, or
would like to start, the program
will help you build a habit that
can last a lifetime.
