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 . . .

all my flaws

Who can you blame?
Are the feelings unjust when a decision is a matter of knowing you must find fault or favour with the ill winds of change?
It is never enough to simply rearrange plans or predicaments. It is like making a prediction of all my flaws with my faith as fractured or fragile as it is, or has been.
Far easier to see what I haven’t been doing.

Mondays are just young Fridays

We tire of unpredictable weather, the damp morning chill, wet socks and lost mittens. Winter keeps reminding it is not through with us.
   We have suffered long enough.
   The streets are tired and dirty and the time change only makes things darker in the morning.
   We need a brighter view.
   We need, now, the renewal that comes with spring.

Progress comes less from planning than participation.
Dreams and wishes require action and attention.
Start moving.

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

I think today will be a good day,
I think it will.
I wake with a purpose, and the
fortified intention to step ahead,
to keep moving forward,
wherever this path will take me.
It’s a fully conscious decision,
my mind made up, to do
what I need to do,
because I can.
The power of the mind is
an amazing thing.
By directing your thoughts
you can shape what you think
and how you see and feel,
so you can, and will, do what is
meant to be done.
Your attitude, on any given day,
impacts the circumference
of your being.
Attitude is all up to you.
Sometimes you have to look
past the troubles and trials
you think may be
holding you back.
You have to
clear your mind of images and
events causing unrest, globally
or personally.
You have to, first,
think of yourself and
find the frame of mind that
will allow you to accomplish,
or continue, what you
set out to do.
There are places you can go,
and things you should be seeing,
yet the most important thing,
for your self, is just being.
