Thoughtful Friday – Joyous

” The aim of life is to live,

and to live means to be aware,

joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware ”

Henry Miller ~

… and finding beauty at every corner,

finding joy in every possible nook and cranny,

choosing to look at these forgotten spots,

filled with treasures just waiting to be discovered.


Thoughtful Friday 2010 – 1

I thought it would be nice to bring Thoughtful Friday back.

I like gathering quotes. I like the way they make their way in my own thoughts until full absorption. I really like how my views can sometimes be a bit shaken by it.

I found this one a long time ago, it kept coming back to me. Probably because it is something  I find so true and yet really struggle applying to my own days. I’m often stuck in what happened before or what I would like to do “once (something else) is done”. The truth is that what is done and gone is exactly that : done and gone. There is nothing about it except us, richer from whatever experience it was. As for what is yet to be, well, everything begins this day, this moment.

Cheers to this day, to every new day !

“ Each morning we are born again.

What we do today is what matters most ”


Thoughtful Friday 14 – first step



“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”


Thoughtful Friday 13 – Taking risks

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud

was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”

Anais Nin

I feel sometimes that my dreams are a bit out of reach.

But dreams always are.

At least for a while.

Aren’t they ?

I contemplate them,

and I freeze.

My feet stops and I can’t seem to move towards them.

I wonder what I am so afraid of.

I want my dreams to guide me.

To push me forward.

No more shying away.

Have a beautiful day everyone !

Thoughtful Friday 12 – The right time

“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be.

Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life.

It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now.

And now is right on time.”

Asha Tyson

I am sending yet another resume soon.

I feel that it’s all I’ve been doing, without much success.


And this all makes me feel a little down,

a little rejected,

a little aimless.

A little useless, too.

I don’t remember where I found this quote, but it resurfaced a few days ago.

Just at the right time.

And I’ve been reading it many times since.

I’m going to hang on to it for a while.

Have a beautiful week end everyone !

Thoughtful Friday 11 – Toward the light

“In the depth of winter,

I finally learned that

there was in me an invincible summer”

Albert Camus

Those last two weeks have brought a lot of thinking.

Since the moving, I lost track of where I was heading.

And started to feel a bit empty, a bit unbalanced.

This loss in my own sense of direction reached its peek two weeks ago,

and I took the time to pull out all the jumbled thoughts and doubts and apprehensions (always a nice cocktail).

It made for a nice puzzle. With lots of tiny pieces 🙂

I guess I did good to take the time and have a look at those.

The situation hasn’t changed, but all seems a bit clearer.

And I feel a little lighter.

A little light-er.

Just in time for fall.

For the beautiful light and the earthy smell in the air.

How I love fall !

The light I saw the other day by the river, I started feeling it within too.

Fall is good !

Thoughtful Friday 10 – Bliss

“Follow your bliss”

Joseph Campbell
