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

Begin the day believing 
something wonderful will 
happen. Not just any day, 
but today.     It could. 
Think of not what could 
go wrong, but what will 
go remarkably right. 
   You’ve got all day, what
will happen?     What do  
you want to happen? 
    Make it happen.

so much to do

Do you do what gets done
out of obligation or
out of joy?

Do you care?

Where do
I start?

So much to do
every day. So little
gets done.

I know.

Do you judge a day
based on how much
was accomplished?

Do you?

Do you
end your day regretting
what was not completed,
do you end the day
looking forward to

Where do
I begin?

true vision

There are days where your vision is not clear, when you find it difficult to look past what is before you to see your true intentions.
   You know what you need to do but lately, day after day, you don’t get it done.
   You can’t see where you are headed, but know you will get there. That’s how strong your true vision is, or how strong it needs to be.
   Look past the barriers.
   Nothing can stop you once you stop stopping yourself.

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

What Catches Your Attention?

Posted on January 2, 2021 by j.g.lewis // 2 Comments

I’m on Pinterest.
Actually, I’ve been on Pinterest for quite some time, I’ve just never been as consistent, or organized, or as committed as I intended when I signed up a few years ago.
I’d add photos and content, in fits and starts, in random periods. I even forgot about it for a while, but realized yesterday that I had added more than I thought, over time.
There’s a lot to see.
Pinterest is inspiring.
What catches your interest?
I post photos, quotes, poetry, journaling info, stuff from my website, or things that catch my attention.
My user name is jg_lewis
Come and have a look.
What do you post?
I’d love to see your pins and boards. Send me your user name. Let me know what captures your imagination.

Pinterest fulfills my window-shopping cravings. I’m a serial browser from way back, because I don’t actually like owning a bunch of stuff, or the act of shopping all that much, but I LOVE looking at beautiful things, and I dig the convenience of having millions of beautiful things in my pocket. Mostly I pin clothes I’m never going to buy, projects I’m never going to do, food I doubt I’ll ever make, and quotes about procrastination…

I love to look, and read, as see the art (and fascinations) of other people. I just found you, followed you, and will look for ,ore inspiration. Happy New Year my friend. peace.
