Early mornings

img_4219

 

I love the early mornings

The day is new and inviting

I’ve slept and I’m rested

It’s quiet and peaceful

I have time to read and think

As my mind gradually awakens

I feel at peace

This is my time with the universe

Time to contemplate and

Remember my dreams

The early mornings

My favorite time

My thoughts are uncluttered

And I’m ready for a fresh start

My notebooks

Days go by

Seasons change

And I write in my notebooks

Children grow up

Life changes

And I keep writing in my notebooks

Dreams are dreamt

Some become reality

And I keep writing in my notebooks

My notebooks have created

A beautiful pile

Colourful and different each 

They are the repository of my thoughts

My writing a daily meditation for me

We move from city to city

Sometimes from one country to another

And I keep writing in my notebooks

Writing is the constant in my life

My notebooks always come with me

Happiness

What brings us happiness?

Certainly not just material things 

Because there are many unhappy rich people 

To be happy we have other need that need the be met 

Need for companionship and friendship 

Need for purpose in our lives

A passion or an interest 

And ironically happiness comes to us

When we make others happy

It’s not just about us

We derive happiness from helping others

And being useful in society 

In a way our happiness depends on the happiness of our neighbor

Calm

Calm like the stillness of the lake

Calm like the quiet of the night

Calm like green grass of the meadow

Calm like the early morning breeze

Calm like the serenity prayer

Calm like a baby sleeping 

Calm like the murmur of water

Calm like a soul at peace

Morning pages

3717CB9F-7EED-4738-AAB9-2219DFF94BCEMorning pages
Write what you want
Empty your cup
Let your mind roam around and explore
There is no particular goal
Write about what has been
Write about what’s to come
Write about your hope and dreams
Just write
We all need to express ourselves
We need to be listened to
Your pages are your companion
Always ready to listen to you
Morning pages
Write what you want
Empty your cup
This is your gift to you

Spirit

A smile is a smile
No matter our race or class or nationality
Tears are tears
No matter where we are from

Laughter is exhilarating
No matter who is laughing
Heartache is painful
No matter the colour our skin

Hope gives us wings
No matter where we were born

Despair makes our days
Cloudy and dark
No matter how rich or poor we are

Kindness and a loving heart
Don’t depend on what we look like

Patience and humility
Don’t have an outward cause

Our essence
Our qualities
How we make others feel
And how we feel
Don’t depend on external forms
They emanate from and are felt
By the spirit inside all of us

Me time

image

What do I do when I want to relax?
What do I do to get away from it all?
What do I do for me time?
The answer is simple: I write

Sometimes what I write is interesting
Other times, not so much
The purpose is not always
Creating a work of art
It’s emptying my cup

There is a calm that comes over me
When I write
I can’t explain it
Don’t know why
But that writing is one of my favourite things
There is no doubt
Give me a pen and paper
And a writing spot
Preferably in a coffee shop
And I’ll be happy and satisfied

Why expressing myself
Brings me joy, I don’t know
Why do I have this need to write
I don’t know
All I know is that writing gives me life
Refreshes my soul and cheers my heart
