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.

Preserve What You Can
Posted on August 31, 2019 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Each season has a taste and
a time, offering remembrances
of those before and anticipation
for what may happen next.
Every season begins anew and
then fades into the next, a cycle
which honors us, and then lets go,
as it must. Life is full of days and
weeks, months, and years. As they
ripen, savor the moments, preserve
what you can, and then be open to
change as you allow fresh tastes,
and the coming time, lively thoughts
and open minds.

You trust
what you must.

You see
what you want to see.

You believe
as much as you can
before the doubt
settles in.

Often we fail, but rarely
do we fully understand
the circumstances or
cause of the setback.
It’s not that there is not
a reason, or a lesson, to
the experience; we simply
choose to assiduously
concentrate on the result
instead of realistically
examining our efforts,
Why always has an answer.
