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 . . .

these days

tomorrow is another chance

but what about today?

Mondays are just young Fridays

Morning fog limits perspective.
As much surprise as wonder,
as isolating as illuminating,
we naturally want to see further.
Your vantage point stays the same.
Captivated throughout the day,
you may well stand where you are,
only the focal point broadens.Daylight eventually finds its way,
you can easily see the difference.
Darkness will come, it always does,
the view will be different tomorrow.

hold the image
speak the silence
feel the clarity

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

Truth & Honesty

Be honest.
Speak your truth, and
say what you mean.
It is easy to say, but
can be hard to do.
It’s difficult at times to
put the right words
into the proper context,
or speak freely.
Or honestly.
Often there is concern
over how you will be
seen, or heard, or believed.
Truth is, at times, not
easy to hear, and it can be
even harder to say.
Sometimes you might feel
it is not enough, because
the truth can be so simple.
Honest.
You may feel that
truth is not enough, but
it is everything.
The hard truth can hurt,
the whole truth can be
hard to swallow, and
the real truth can heal.
Be truth.
Breathe your truth.
Breathe honesty,
and
breathe it honestly.
