The Ponder Days

I am just a sojourner, an artist wandering through life with a sense of wonder about it all. Come ponder with me. This year is about observation and perspective.

This blog is interactive and is at its best when comments are left and opinions shared, lively discussions generated, and perhaps with your favorite beverage.

I would love to read your comments. Please, don't be shy...

And thinks of times past,
of mistakes made,
lessons learned,
and growth thus far,
and the realization that all things
come together for the good
of the higher self ~ if only one
can recognize it as such.

Growing pains occur all through
one's life. It is pain from which
growth can spurt ~ if only one
can recognize it as such.

Loss is gain, for the spirit
becomes stronger for allowing
grieving and not hiding
from it ~ if only one
can recognize it as such.

And grow.

Overwhelmed? Chunk it Down!

Small manageable is amazing what you can get done in only 15 minutes of focused time.  You'll feel calmer, enlightened, with a sense of accomplishment. Anyone can find fifteen minutes, and you might even discover that at the end of the 15, you may want to keep going. Go ahead...just don't tire yourself. This is supposed to be fun!

Ponder the intentions for the new year. If you find the intention doesn't work, it can be cast aside for a more relevant one. Only resolve that of which you are certain...I intend.
