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 . . .

the days ahead

Pack lightly. 

Carry with you only what is required.

Leave space for memories, or souvenirs, of the days ahead.

Enthusiasm permits you to turn a planned trip into a true adventure.

What you will see is nothing compared to what you will feel.

Don’t forget your camera.

viewpoint

Vision obscured by common occurrence, perhaps appearing disparate today, yet  always hope for an alternate perspective.  Hardly a coincidence, isolation may  principally compound its influence or  allow you to seek a different viewpoint. Take notice, observation provides clarity.

Mondays are just young Fridays

There.

 

Sit, quietly and comfortably, where you are.

 

Acknowledge the gradient nature of progress as it happens with the shades of past days inflecting a presence we don’t often respect.

 

Take your time.

 

Feel. Where you are.

 

At the intersection of faith and contentment you will gradually find your way.

 

Think about it.

 

Set your intentions.

 

Now rise, slowly and purposefully.

 

Look up, not only with your eyes but with your neck engaged in mindful movement.

 

Release the stiffness in your bones, allow energy to radiate from the spaces between.

 

Let the weight on your shoulders dissipate as you allow the arms to simply hang as if they are not even there.

 

Inhale. Exhale.

 

Each breath is as important as the next.

 

Breathe.

 

Exercise thankfulness, first and foremost to your self and the effort you have just expended.

 

Hold that thought.

 

You have already begun to experience the day.

 

Gratitude will follow with your next steps.

 

Share that feeling.

 

Enjoy this day.

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

_MG_3814 - Version 2

Ten reminders from
last night’s lunar eclipse.

– Gravity has a role to play, and
   each of us has a place in the
   universe, but there are times
   when things line up and, even
   despite distance, the results
   are astounding.

– Things take time, but if you are
   patient, you will see results.

– You have to look up, or you
   will miss a few miracles.

– There are 24 hours in a day.
   Some days are brighter than
   others, and sometimes clouds
   get in the way, but you still need
   to make the most out of every
   hour. Time is finite; though your
   enjoyment of time need not be.

– If you are going to stay up late,
   make it worthwhile.

– Entertainment and amusement
   is not always man made.

– Some times you just have to sit
   and allow time to pass. You
   cannot rush and, if you try not
   to, you will enjoy the moments.

– Don’t expect things to be what
   they are built up to be, accept
   them as they are and see the
   beauty that is there.

– A camera can capture the
   moment, but your mind
   holds the memory.

– Some things are worth waiting    for.
