...thinking and doing...

decision making,
for many,
is a fraught process.
between the decision and its execution
is a slot in time
through which the voices of anxiety and regret
often make themselves heard.
instead,
let action flow naturally from your resolve,
without a break.
or if there's a waiting period
before you can actually embark
on what you've chosen to do,
use it to affirm your trust in yourself.
keep those mischievous,
undermining energies at bay:
they have no right of admission.
~1,001 ways to live in the moment
it is
a beautiful thing
to be gently nudged
awake by a sunbeam.
the streams of light
fill my room
generously.
warmth and light,
tho only 11 degrees...makes
for the start of
a great day.
so little, makes my heart swell with hope.
light + objects= shadows
i've captured some today...
so have they
at
trust in yourself...
just BE.

Every day we are alive is a wonderful day - and if the sun is peeing through the window, it is fabulous! And of course the strong southerly winter sun breeches the cold and allows shadows of beauty. A lovely perspective!

That's fun-tastic Robin and again with those beautiful words.

Make everything perfect here.

Hope you join the fun day at my place.

It took me a few minutes, but I finally figured out what your photo is of. Maybe I should spend more time in my kitchen. :)

Hey Harriet said...

Wow, what great photos! It took me a while to figure out what it was & I'm glad to read here that I wasn't the only one. Lovely! Wonderful words also. I often struggle with the coming together of the 'thinking' & 'doing' & spend so much time procrastinating prior to the doing that the doing sometimes just doesn't get done.

Thanks so much for your kind words. Enjoy your sunbeams xo

LOL such simple things and such great effects! At first I didn't see what it was but now I do and what a creative idea you had. Love the lines you write with your pictures. They are fantastic and often really make me think!
