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 . . .

Mondays are just young Fridays

What are a few days between seasons? As if a shadow could tell of the time and temperature range from hour to day, today or tomorrow, or last season.
   Summer to fall. Now is not a fixed period, as was yesterday or last week. Those periods of time are fluid, ever changing, but still somewhat definite in our minds for the time being representing the periods or eras of our presence here on earth.
   How we measure our time, any time, always includes a proviso. The conditions we set will influence what is to come, as much as what has happened.
   How can you explain yourself when a short-term view overrides the obvious long-term accumulation of thought and experience.
   This time is yours; how you chose to share it will differ from day to day.

You wander.
We all do.

Uncertainty can often
blur your surroundings.


The map is always there,
the lines signify the path
you need to follow.

You simply have to find
the direction.

It is all in your hands.

               Anguish or confusion, 
        sometimes it is the way. 
      Anxiety takes over. 
        What else can you say  
     as you try to put aside all 
     the feelings that dog you 
   anyway.    No pain today.  
           Try as you might to
    see your way through. 
       No pain.    Not today.

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

So Much To Say

Posted on December 20, 2020 by j.g.lewis Leave a comment

So little of the year remains. Still. So much to say, even more to be thankful for. Each day we are blessed, many times in ways we cannot even comprehend. Or express.
   We are blessed many times over.
   Winter solstice is upon us.
   It is now, then, a time for thought. Time to remind ourselves what we have been through (survived) and what is ahead.
   We should be thankful.
   We need to be grateful for what we have. We need to be more understanding of ourselves, our intentions, and of those around us: both friends and strangers.
   Give thought to your thoughts. Make them good, make them better, and make them kinder.
   We all need kindness, particularly those who are not aware or have not shown kindness. Maybe they have not experienced kindness? They, perhaps more than all others, need to see and need to believe kindness can also be forgiveness.
   Kindness may be the greatest wonder of our life.
   Tomorrow we step forward from the darkest day of the year to a brighter future. Be optimistic. Be grateful. Show kindness.
