thoughtful Thursday

thoughtful Thursday          

 So Thursdays are as good as any day to be thoughtful. i have many thoughts daily
  that stop me in my tracks, some that start me to ponder and just like the sound
 of  and  although i am thoughtful daily many times, i like to zero in some days on 
  something i am mentally chewing on. 
Thoughtful might mean i see/think something
  but put no out loud words to it to anyone, so i  chew on it mentally. 
This Thursday i am wondering how i spend my energy and try to balance it, 
  as  not to  give it away in anger, frustration, etc... 
  and rather to  spend it with more wisdom like compassion
 anhow that just might make a difference in my day and attitude.

draw and paint
 and sing and dance

 What wise words !
Be well, Sonja

Thought provoking. Interestingly, when settling on a "word for the year" excercise, my 2017 is "Balance". I need it because everything interests me, and I want to do it all!

I am unbalanced in emotion right now. Who would have thought all the negative events I've lived through and with would seem like nothing to today.
Because of you, today, just for today I will try to focus on beauty. When worries interfere I will try to put them on the shelf to handle later. Just for right now I will look at the sky and breathe.
thank you Sonja
