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.

A crappy day at the office, or a shitty night’s sleep?
  Which came first?
  It’s very much chicken and egg. Often your sleep will not only affect the day, but reflect your day.
  Troubles in the workplace, difficulties at home or in any corner of your life, can easily come alive, again, at night.
  A poor night’s sleep will linger through the day, and the vicious cycle continues. Often it is not so much how long you have slept, but how deeply.
  Wake today and try to reverse the cycle with a pleasant thought. Remember those things that bring about happiness. For a little while, try to smile about the good things going on rather than fretting about those little bits of unpleasantness that travel in and out of our lives.
  It sounds like a rather simple solution to what could be a complicated issue, but sometimes it is the simple things that make the biggest difference.
