tomorrow is another chance
but what about today?

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 . . .
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.11/28/2022 j.g.l.

I am not my thoughts
I am my breath
I am not always right
I am what is left
I am not my past
I am what remains
I am not rigid
I am change *
We are what we are. Formed by where we have come from, influenced by many people along our path, we are the way we are because of cumulative life events.
It all adds up, but is not the sum of our self.
The seasons and the years of our past remind us, often, of where we have been, but that is not it. We are more than our troubles, greater than our achievements and failures, and more significant than we realize.
We need to shift our thinking from what has happened to what can happen.
Put the distance between what you were so you can go the distance and see what you can be.
