Peter’s Quote for The Day-Create.

Create

Feature Photo jannerboy62 upsplash.com

Don’t Think, Create

Wisdom told me: Don’t think, create. You spend all day and a half (or more) of the night thinking. This is a huge pity, as you were created to create, not think! I know creativity is within all of us, but like a river, it needs a course to follow before it comes into its own. When the snow melts on the mountain water trickles downwards, forging its way until joined by others with the same intent,  it becomes a huge torrent. Along a relentless journey of self-discovery, I unearthed my creative ability. At this fork in my journey, I took a left turn to the road of creative discovery. It was on this road that I found my pot-o-gold. Now my days are spent creating – what bliss!

Peter’s Quote for The Day-You Never Too Late.

Too Late

Feature Photo by Aron Visuals Upsplash.com

It’s OK you’re Not Late.

I have come to understand that absolutely nothing is ever, ‘too late’ but rather, everything is always on time. There are some ancient wise words that say: “Everything on earth has its own time and its own season. There is a time for birth and death, planting and reaping…” I filtered this through to my own life and recalled how many times I have failed to take hold of opportunities; failed to respond to the calls of others and the list goes on. Does this happen in your life? I am teaching myself to respond to what I am easily able to do and to accept that which I’m not so easily able to deal with at the time. Above all, to be comfortable in what I am in a position to do or not to at any given moment. The result is that everything I do is just in time and I’m never too late.

Peter’s Quote for The Day-Just Be Me.

Me

Feature Photo by Bluebird Images Upsplash.com

Being Me is Enough

I am authentic in my secret self, which is not necessarily the person I project to the world outside; although, I dearly wish it was. I am my own person, I do not match myself with others. I prefer to match myself with the Genius within. For my own comfort and enjoyment, I need to walk to my own drumbeat. I was uniquely created, why should I imitate the behavior of others? My behavior is infinitely more rewarding. I read once, “Comparison is odious.” I agree with this statement; however, if others want to match themselves with me, that’s OK. This has helped me to accept the behavior of others toward me, whatever it might be. It’s interesting to see, very often my acceptance of their treatment gives them relief.

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Bend a Little

Bend

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You Bend a Little.

I see fear as a recipe for failure, but the good news is, I am empowered to beat fear and start over again.

Before I can change the world I must needs change myself. Looking honestly into myself, I find plenty that needs changing.

There have been many times I have had to bend to survive, fortunately, if I bend for too long, it gives me backache.

The span of my years is not in my control. What is in my control is how I enjoy them.

Famous Author Quotes-Dr Maya Angelou On Love

Faithhopelove

Feature Chris Liu Upsplash.com

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” Dr. Maya Angelou

I have understood that love in its purest forms will always accomplish its ends. It was quite startling for me, however, to realize that the word ‘love’, mostly associated with romance and that, as such, would be a weak and even vulnerable state. The one who is in love with another, whether it is reciprocated or not, opens themselves to being hurt. As such, I could not see this condition as a state of strength. Yet, if we consider the love of a mother for her child, now we have a vision of one would fight to the end to protect. I have seen similar situations, where the love of a fellow human leads to the same state of strength. It is when I think of these two examples that I am able to see that this type of love is selfless and therefore very powerful.

Wisdom Snippets From Peter-Live a Full Life

Water Ski

Feature Photo by Ian Wagg Upsplash.com

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

My life is one big Blessing, I love it! I acknowledge this in gratitude both at the beginning and end of my day. Daily, I live my life to the full.

I own no valuables that are worth stealing. The two most valuable possessions I have in my life, are my heart and my dreams, and, trust me, they are staying put.

It is said, “Life is too short.” Yet, none of us wants to grow old. A little confusing. Queen was on the right track when Freddy Mercury sang, “Who Wants to Live Forever.” Well I do, I don’t care how old I am – I just love life. How about you?

I am a free soul. As a youth, I used to water-ski naked at night – did you?

Peter’s Quote for The Day-Choose Light.

Light

Feature Photo by Allen Cai Upsplash.com

Live in The Light

All things which grow, seek the light, on finding it they flourish, whilst all things begin growing in the dark, there, they will never flourish. I look for light always. In the light I flourish, in the dark, I wither. As a child, I had terrible fears when I awoke in the dark, but with the light of the dawn, the dark and my fears disappeared. Now I say, ‘It’s best to live in the light.

Weekly Words of Wisdom-Unrequieted Dreams.

Dreams

Feature Photo by carolyn christine Upsplash.com

Unrequieted Dreams, Who Has Them?

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter–tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…. And one fine morning– So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Gatsby lived in his dream, the green light, across the bay. A green light which signaled to him the presence of his dream, Daisy, the woman, it was said, he loved. Yet his dream was never fulfilled. It remained just that, an unrequited dream. Perhaps with you, and I, the pursuit of our dreams is like rowing a boat against a current. A current that is always sweeping us backward into our past. We, unawares, see our dreams recede with the years until we have forgotten that we had them. Do you have unrequited dreams? Do you have unrequited love? My past is a huge treasure chest of dreams and experiences. I live off these dreams and experiences, but I am careful not to live in them. Living in my dreams has caused me to lose my vision. Now I live, steering for my dreams, not living in them.

Peter’s Quote for the Day-Adventure.

adventure

Feature Photo by Annie Spratt Upsplash.com

Take to Adventure.

I love adventure with a passion. I was adventurous from a young age. As I matured I found that adventure was not all outside of me. The real effortless adventures were to be found inside of me. Outward adventures gave me memories. My inward adventures have resulted in outward creativity. I write creatively, I scribble pictures – more than this though, I create my own happiness, that’s something to think about.

Peter’s Quote for The Day-Choosing Friends.

Friends

Feature Duy Pham Upsplash.com

Choose Friends Wisely

I must be wise with my choice of friends. If I part for one reason or another from any of them, I must do so kindly, with no ill feelings when I part from those friends. Parting does not mean I cease to love you. (by love, I do not address the romantic love, but the love of our fellow humans.) Adopting this attitude, I have found much peace of mind.

A voicemail message attributed to a certain Pastor Henry Schorr goes like this: “Thanks for calling. I’ve been away making changes in my life. Please leave a message. If you don’t hear back from me, you are one of the changes. Enjoy your day.” (“The Power of Focus.” Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Les Hewitt. page 130.)
