The Matter of Change


Yesterday, during my quiet time I came across some very interesting quotes about how to go about changing ourselves.

Self awareness is the first step to self improvement.

A change in behavior begins with a change in heart.

We defeat ourselves or gain victories by the thoughts we think.

Become addicted to constant and never-ending self improvement.

Never neglect an opportunity for self improvement.

When you look in the mirror see more than your face…see your self.

Put off your old self….to be made new in the attitudes of your minds. (Ephesians 4:22,23)

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2)

“The Moon is Always Full”


In 2014 when my memoir, “My Precious Life” was published, I was working on a book of poetry, in the works for over forty years. “The Moon is Always Full” is now about a week away from printing. This is a sample cover of the book which contains one-hundred-and-twenty-nine poems, including thirty-one in haiku form.

This is proof positive that we are never too old to start something new. Having been on this planet for eighty-one-plus years, each day continues to be an opportunity to welcome new ideas and seek new horizons. Carpe diem!

Questions and feedback are most welcome.

THE MOON IS ALWAYS FULL

Once a month…

sometimes twice,

the full moon is revealed:

but when it’s on the wane

that fullness seems concealed.

Its many phases mark the heavens,

earth’s tides reveal its pull

the naked eye may yet espy

the moon is always full.

Worth Repeating


This was posted by Butch Dean in July and I believe it is definitely worth repeating.

Don’t Let Time Slip Away

Life and relationships have their difficulties. We don’t always agree with one another. Sometimes, we let pride and stubbornness rob us of the time we have together. Then, when we least expect it, life ends for one and any opportunity to make things right is gone. We are left helpless with a burden of regret.

Don’t let time slip away. Don’t let the sun set on your anger. Don’t wait until it’s too late. The time to make things right is now, this moment…it is all you have. There’s no promise of tomorrow; there’s only today. Don’t let time slip away.
