Monday Words for the Soul~August 11

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.
Tahereh Mafi

20 Signs You’re Succeeding In Life Even If You Don’t Feel You Are

We all feel like failures from time to time. While this is a normal feeling, you have to find a way to see yourself and your life from a different perspective. Sometimes we ignore the “little things.” Just because you are not a millionaire, don’t live in a mansion, and you don’t drive a fancy car, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. In fact, it’s quite the contrary.

Here are 20 signs that you are succeeding in life at this link: http://sco.lt/8t6u2r

Midweek Question~August 6~Apple Orchards and You

What more could I have wanted from that day?
Everything, of course. Perhaps that was the point—
To learn that what we will not grasp is lost.
~Dana Gioia, The Apple Orchard Poem

This week’s question is reflective nudge toward branching out…(sorry for the pun on the title)

What more could you want from your days?

here are a few answers from a glance at top posts on my Facebook feed

~more time with my family
~more courage to stand up to the boss at work
~more willpower at the bakery
~more time in the garden
~more time to take walks
~more hugs
~less exhaustion
~less distractions

and my own:
~less resolute focus on my ed. jobs (case in point, I originally typed the poem title as “The Apply Orchard” proving that Bloom’s Taxonomy is ever-present in my brain)

What more could you want from your days?

Perhaps the first thing that pops in your mind is the place to begin tomorrow.
