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 . . .

future progress

It is often history that clouds our judgment, and even prevents us from seeing the true and right path we must take going forward.

   The steps we have already made, even those unplanned, play a meaningful role in the direction we have chosen. But, they do not always have to chart the course of future progress.

   Progress, yes, it is what we must do, even unknowingly.

The coldest morning of the winter
reminds you what is truly important:
– a warm parka
– garbage mitts
– a positive attitude
– good coffee

Spring is coming.
So is the weekend.

cloud songs

        Our dreams, scattered
     amidst our memory, last night
            or the one before.
     The dream, the day
     inconsequential as
          the music that plays
            in the coffee shop.
            It is all noise
       cluttering the silence
       we think we want to hear.

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

Tend To Your Mind

Posted on June 23, 2017 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

Commitment: it’s one of those tough words.
  At times commitment is tough, especially when it comes to yourself.
  You know you need to tend to your mind, but where do you find the time?
  You feel you’ve got things to say, but when do you fit it into your day?
  Commitment: it takes time.

Build a journaling ritual you can rely upon, one you will stay committed to, no matter what else you do. FINDING YOUR VOICE – MAKING THE CHOICE will guide you through the process of creating time to write it all out.

Whether you regularly journal, have let the practice slide, or if you simply want to get started, this online program allows you to fit the daily prompts into your schedule.
In the closed forum, we will walk through the days with simple, effective, soul-nourishing exercises, authentic support, and the company of like-minded soul-seekers going through the process with you (and we’ll have some fun).
