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 . . .

all my flaws

Who can you blame?
Are the feelings unjust when a decision is a matter of knowing you must find fault or favour with the ill winds of change?
It is never enough to simply rearrange plans or predicaments. It is like making a prediction of all my flaws with my faith as fractured or fragile as it is, or has been.
Far easier to see what I haven’t been doing.

Mondays are just young Fridays

We tire of unpredictable weather, the damp morning chill, wet socks and lost mittens. Winter keeps reminding it is not through with us.
   We have suffered long enough.
   The streets are tired and dirty and the time change only makes things darker in the morning.
   We need a brighter view.
   We need, now, the renewal that comes with spring.

Progress comes less from planning than participation.
Dreams and wishes require action and attention.
Start moving.

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

We don’t get out as much these days.
We don’t see the people we used to see like we used to see them.
Our lives are missing the social contact we once had, at work or in the community.
When you are physically distanced or isolated, you don’t get, or are not allowed, to say the simple things.
We don’t hear “thank you” like we once did.
Without our day-to-day transactional ways we, generally, live our lives with fewer opportunities to express gratitude or appreciation,
Not going out, not getting what we’re used to, there is less of a reason to say it, or hear it.
Yet, as messed up as our little world seems at times, we do have so much to be thankful for.
Today, find something, or someone, to be thankful for and say it:
Thank you for being there.
Thank you for wearing a mask.
Thank you for adding a smile to my day
Thank you for making me think.
Thank you for being you.
Thank you.
