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 . . .

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

Leave The Days Behind
Posted on May 31, 2022 by j.g.lewisLeave a comment

Deceitful May.
Consistent in its will
to disappoint, May suffers
a perennial identity crisis.
Not quite summer,
too short-sighted to be
emboldened by a dreadful spring,
the month fails to show potential
of a wonderful journey ahead.
Summer already
too brief, May does not
extend the season in any
meaningful way. As such, we
leave the days behind and
can only hope June
will give us what we need,
want or desire.
Can I look forward
to greater warmth, brighter days,
an abundance of smiles, hugs,
and the joy I often find in June?

Mondays are just young Fridays

Last week was last week.
   We begin this week anew.
   A new day, another chance to deal with the discrepancies, deceptions, and dead-end starts that failed to materialize.
   Sadly, we become distracted by the disappointments.
   It’s okay. Not everything needs to be completed at once. In fact, some things are better kept in an uncompleted state.
   You have other priorities.
   Let the past remain where it sits, there are better days ahead.

Get started.

It takes work.

It takes practice.
