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.

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.)

Peter’s Quote for The Day-The Golden Goose.

Golden Egg

Feature Photo by Sharon McCutcheon Upsplash.com

The Golden Goose Lays Golden Eggs

I learned something very valuable. There are some ancient and wise words that say, “Cast your bread on the waters and after many days it will return.” But there’s more…. “Give a portion to six or seven…” What the wise words are explaining is: Invest in your fellow humans and as time goes by your investment will grow in return. But don’t stop there, give even more from your gain. Now you become like the golden goose, sharing her eggs as she lays them. It’s another way of saying, “Love your neighbor.”

Peter’s Quote for The Day-ADHD and Loved

Energy

ADHD and Loved

Being ADHD and mildly dyslexic has never held me back; it’s just the reactions of others who become confused by my behavior! I feel for them not being able to be inside my skin, wherein is a huge treasure chest. A treasure chest of quirky qualities. A huge store of imagination, energy, spontaneity, creativity, and innovation. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I am a happy ADHD chappie in love with himself and loved by others.

Peter’s Quote for The Day-First Love

Heart

Feature Photo by Jon Tyson Upsplash.com

Kissed and Loved

My first love came about when I was seven years old. As two seven-year-olds, sitting on the porch, and making certain no one was watching, we kissed. Many, many years later, I found the first lady I have ever truly loved. Falling in love with her was extraordinarily exciting; we kissed often. I never wanted to lose this feeling, so I married her and decided I never wish to fall out of the love that I have fallen into.
