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 . . .

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

Right Now

Plans and promises are often
ignored, forgotten, or broken.
Resolutions are risky, and
wishes don’t always come true.
You continue looking ahead,
wondering why or when,
at times to the point where
you forget where you are going,
or even where you are.
What matters most is that you
are present in the moment.
Where you are is the only place
you need to be. It is the only
place you can be right now.

See The Need
Posted on December 27, 2017 by j.g.lewis // 2 Comments

The seasonal lights dim, holidays soon will draw to a close, and we return to day-to-day living. Still we cannot forget circumstances, and the need for giving.

So many of us are fortunate to have a roof over our head, food in the fridge, and money in the bank. Sadly, others are not.

We all see the need.

We live in uncertain times. In this vast global community, or just down the street, we all know of needs that current resources will not meet. Budgets are stretched, programs require increased funding, and, more than ever, we are being asked to help our fellow beings.

Choose a charity, or two, and provide what you can. Money is good, but so is your time.

Not a hand out, but a hand up; a familiar adage we have all heard before. Regularly, but more so in the festive season, we are asked to help those unable to care for themselves.

This season of sharing is the season of caring, and we cannot simply stop.

Keep giving, continue living , and remember the spirit of the season is more than forgiving.

Do your part, do what you can. Know your heart and lend a hand.

What You Need To Do

There are thousands of
reasons to turn around,
and only one reason to
keep moving forward.
Do what you need to do.
