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 . . .

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.

With all the idle chatter, blatant bias, flexible facts, fake news, political posturing and conspiracy theories, it’s so hard to sort through the bullshit and find your own truths (which can vary as much as the next human being).
Knowing what is true is not always easy. In fact, knowing what’s right it is more difficult than righting wrongs.
To keep me true, I keep an ever-expanding mental list; and so should you too.
Today, here is what I know to be true:

If I don’t start, I will never finish.

If I can’t trust myself I’m screwed.

There is always another way and it is not always right. In fact, it may be as wrong as the original option.

Not all memories are good, but they are mine.

I have more to gain than I have to lose.

I have more books to read than time and patience to read them. Still, that should not dissuade me from trying.

My list is never ending.

I can trust somebody until I can trust no more.

Self-awareness, self-doubt, and self-care are individual things.

I’m still getting to know my self.

I am still here.

Progress equals patience.

Not all ideas are good.

Words mean something.

What I learned yesterday will help me get through tomorrow.

Learning is easier than remembering.

My mornings are what I make of them.
