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.

Daily Miracle
Posted on October 2, 2018 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Through rain and sleet, snow,
and hail, our determination,
intentions and will prevails.
We are all going somewhere.
We all have things to do. We
wake up and get things done,
or we try.
Some days we don’t accomplish
everything we want. At times,
we do more than is asked of us,
each time contributing to the
world around us.
That’s how this daily miracle
happens; we do what we need
to do. Rain or shine.
We do what we can, or we can
do more
Make today one of those days.
Do more than what is expected,
and do more for yourself.

Mondays are just young Fridays

It’s a new month, a new week,
a new day: today.
Change; if only it were as simple
as flipping a page. If only it were
as certain as it is uncertain.
We have come to believe change
takes time, or practice, or patience.
We think (or have thought) there
are rules or regulations involved
when change is required.
Often, we believe we can’t change
so we don’t try. Attitudes change.
Change is not always sudden.
Many times there are increments
we won’t notice until something
changes. It’s like that.
Daily, weekly, monthly we change.
Most of the time the changes are
for the better. In time.
What do you want to change?
What changes have you noticed
lately? What changes do you need
to make? Is today the day?
Will you try? Will you notice?
