There’s a saying that the only sure things in life are death and taxes. Well today was the day that I sat down to work on filing a return. The good news is that $66 was owed which is not bad because you don’t want to pay too much in during the year. Yes a bunch back would be great but you know it could be worse in how much owed. Sure we have a extended deadline due to Covid-19 but paying now means not forgetting about it later.
Being above the clouds can help take your mind off all the troubles down below. Clouds can be fluffy and pretty but some have as much trouble in them as what your life is on the ground. Having your head in the cloud is a nice, temporary retreat from the woes of life but you can’t stay there. Sometimes we wish we could store all our problems in the cloud. Whatever has you wishing for the clouds is only temporary. It too shall pass like clouds.
In some ways, climbing in the clouds is comforting. You can no longer see how high off the ground you are.Tommy Caldwell
I have blogged daily for one year. Am I going to take a break? Nope! My philosophy is to keep on blogging because its fun. During these days we have a chance to blog and tell the world our wacky stories.
In this time of uncertainty, patience is a divine virtue. Have patience with yourself, with one another, with the circumstances we are in. Everyone is going through something and we all wish things were back to “normal”. It is my thought that we aren’t going back to “normal” but something else that will require us to have patience and a whole lot of grace for one another.
Who knows what things will look like on the other side. It will require patience and hopefully freedom from anxiety.
My friends, now is the time to be still, take care of self, have a little faith in something that will get you through. Remember to love one another and yourselves in this very difficult time.
It’s Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom among other places. May this day honor your contributions to your families and the world. It’s a tough time to celebrate this year but you still need to be recognized.
It’s dangerous outside. Inside its safe.
In an ever-changing world certainty is one of those things that gives one comfort and some peace. However, its the mystery of life that means certainty is not always what is best. Having a certain way of doing things can mean one doesn’t have to think, it just comes naturally through practice and tradition.
Our religion is something many can be certain about. Maybe its science or history or the arts. It’s always going to be there or so we hope. All of those things are subject to new information, trends, discovery and personal interpretation.
Sure it would be great to be certain about one’s income or who wins the big game or perhaps what the rules of life are but even all that is subject to forces outside our control. In our personal lives being certain to have the love of family in friends is reassuring.
I suppose the only thing to be certain about is change and we are all subject to that in our daily lives.
Nobody knows the future with certainty. We can, however, identify ongoing patterns of change.
I think Mr. Toffler is on to something. The future is not a lock but if we pay attention we can be ready for the change that will certainly come.
Certainty isn’t certain.
I am more of an old school blogger and less content creator. My writing is within the confines of creating a post of things I find sacred, serious and even silly. My posts are short and concise featuring writing, media and sometimes both. My goal is to be a good all-around blogger where I can connect with fellow bloggers and others.
