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 . . .

Look

When it’s not right, we see
only what is wrong instead
of trying to make it better.

Look past the faults.
See possibilities.

Keep moving forward.

Mondays are just young Fridays

So, I make mistakes.
   An oversight or three, here and there, or an error or lack of judgment can (and will) happen. My lack of foresight simply happens.
   We do not learn from our mistakes, but rather we learn from the experience.
   You cannot prepare yourself for all probabilities knowing a mistake is a likely possibility.
   Pay attention.
   Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.

That Moon

 

Maybe this Moon

with the power it bleeds

      will illuminate more

      unnecessary violence

     and greed.

       Maybe this Moon

         has memories

    it simply cannot forget.

       Some of us will relate

    while others regret.

  Maybe that Moon knows

        what it is all worth

   and sets an example

       for those looking up

         from this earth.

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

Express Yourself

Posted on September 19, 2017 by j.g.lewis // 1 Comment

The only letters that are too late
are those that don’t arrive.

Only sentiments not expressed
are the ones that don’t survive.

Time is wasted searching for words
to fit the moment or the day.

Expressing yourself is most difficult
when emotions get in the way.

Pick up a pencil and find the strength
to let your feelings show.

Letters written and never sent
are a cause of the unknown.

Try to be heard above the clamour
as we struggle through everyday life,

Don’t drag those daily misfortunes
under the cover of the night.
