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 . . .

viewpoint


Vision obscured by common occurrence,

perhaps appearing disparate today, yet 

always hope for an alternate perspective.

    Hardly a coincidence, isolation may 

principally compound its influence or 

allow you to seek a different viewpoint.

Take notice, observation provides clarity.

Mondays are just young Fridays

There.

 

Sit, quietly and comfortably, where you are.

 

Acknowledge the gradient nature of progress as it happens with the shades of past days inflecting a presence we don’t often respect.

 

Take your time.

 

Feel. Where you are.

 

At the intersection of faith and contentment you will gradually find your way.

 

Think about it.

 

Set your intentions.

 

Now rise, slowly and purposefully.

 

Look up, not only with your eyes but with your neck engaged in mindful movement.

 

Release the stiffness in your bones, allow energy to radiate from the spaces between.

 

Let the weight on your shoulders dissipate as you allow the arms to simply hang as if they are not even there.

 

Inhale. Exhale.

 

Each breath is as important as the next.

 

Breathe.

 

Exercise thankfulness, first and foremost to your self and the effort you have just expended.

 

Hold that thought.

 

You have already begun to experience the day.

 

Gratitude will follow with your next steps.

 

Share that feeling.

 

Enjoy this day.

      As it is and will be 
for the foreseeable future, there is 
only what remains behind the disguise.
   As natural as it has been, as
   astonishing as it occasionally seems, 
   we can only hope it will get better.
     Why is it we allow optimism 
     to dislimn all that is?
          Hope casts a lengthy shadow.

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
well-rounded,
other times
dull or
occasionally
broken.
Still I write.

In your diary or journal, what will you say about today?
Will you remember a day that is closer than it is far away, or will you jot down dreams and goals for tomorrow?
Will you write about how things have gone off track or ponder the life you hope to get back? Can you find the words you can’t always say?
What will you write today?

Are you looking for inspiration for your journal?
soultalk is offering a
free online journaling workshop
October 1 – 11
In addition to daily journal prompts, there will be discussion in a closed (but open-minded) group, along with ideas, insight, and examples on breathing new life into your journaling practice.
Whether you have been journaling for years, have let the habit slip, or are simply starting out, a soultalk online session will add a little more clarity to your personal writing practice.
The free program is open to, pretty much, everyone.
All you need is a journal or notebook, pen or pencil, and a little time each day to think and write.
Come On Home
will run in conjunction with Mythos & Marginalia’s Homecoming Month, where a talented group of humans from across the globe have been invited to share their thoughts on home.
