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 . . .


As it is, not
as we wish it to be.

You have days
to think back on,

and you do…

always with the questions

Is what you do enough?
For who?
For you?
Is it selfish to think mainly
of what I need to do for me,
myself, and I?
When will I find resolve to
my never-ending queries?
Will it be enough?
Do you still doubt?
Do you struggle with answers,
as much as the questions?
Can you decide?
Are you trying?
Is that enough?

cloud songs

                          Library of memories;
      pages and paragraphs full of history
          and biography, essay or adventure.
                            Which story should I tell?
               Is it one you would well know or
                   a tale I still have no ending for?

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