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 . . .

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

Life changes, we change.
The years, the places,
the choices, and faces;
it can feel at times
like you are being held back,
feeling rushed, uncertain,
or a little off track.
Confusion is as common
as it is uncertain,
for change can happen
in the blink of an eye. Or
it can be slow to arrive,
and uncomfortably shy.
Through periods of adversity,
or moments of jubilation,
change is certain. It does
what it does. Very little
remains the same, or as it was.
A genuine mix of old and
of new, yet at the core of it all
is the original you.
Whether your options are many
or a very scant few,
find time for repose
and think
it all through.
Make the best choices,
the best changes, for you.

“My happiness is not the means
to any end. It is the end. It is its
own goal. It is its own purpose.”
