Just Give Me A Reason


On this day, it seems to me that the world around us needs beauty living inside of our soul. Touched by this gentle bliss, may the joy of these moments linger in your soul, long after the words are gone.

As much as you need nourishment for your body, we also need beauty to feed our soul. Different appreciations that set us apart, but in the end keep us together – It could be a moment, or something that simply touches your heart - when you are totally overwhelmed and silenced by the beauty before you. Speechless. Breathless. Totally.


Life can take you extraordinary places

"Just Give Me A Reason" - Pink

Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken, just bent and we can learn to love again
It's in the stars, it's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken, just bent, and we can learn to love again

As delicate and beautiful as a bloom: Life itself. I cannot think of another that has the ability to speak without words, and my thoughts wander, as I yearn to hit the pause button.


You know I love Christmas! I feel like the closer we get, the more difficult it will be to find that perfect gift. The shipping, the merchandise that isn't getting restocked, there are bound to be shortages. Less will be more this year. More than I expect. :) It's not about the presents my friends, it is about family and friends. In keeping with the Christmas Countdown, I give you one seasonal picture and the day count! There are 59 days 00 hours 28 minutes and 03 seconds.

And just like that, this post is over! Come back tomorrow and we will do it again! May there always be a flower to color your world. Pick one. #alwaysaflower Love to all! Hive on!

All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.

It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.

The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.

A very nice thing to say. But to be honest, even though we feed the body, we do not feed the mind.

Thank you. I can see that you are a very literal person. It means you are consuming information oh, and I interpret that to feeding. Of course, not in the literal sense, but, meaning to take in. I hope this clears up the miscommunication. Have a great day!

Thank you so much. I'm not so sure that they're always meaningful to anybody except for myself oh, but I always hope so. Flowers are always very beautiful to me, even in their demise. They truly do, my world and I hope to be able to do that for at least another person.

I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and leave your words. Have an amazing day!

First... hello, dear friend! I hope you had a great Wednesday... and please know how much I appreciate your posting in my Community 🙏. Such a wonderful post... let me just chime in, and agree with your thoughts...

"On this day, it seems to me that the world around us needs beauty living inside of our soul. Touched by this gentle bliss, may the joy of these moments linger in your soul, long after the words are gone."

You know... people are constantly searching for those "Daily Affirmation" quotes. Positive words of comfort, and uplifting energies. This certainly qualifies as one! Who needs Canva when we got Denise!!

All kidding aside, I appreciate your posts, and beautiful photographs of #alwaysaflower... breath deep... we need those wonderful memories...

Wes...

Good morning from here! I did have a great Wednesday and it is always a pleasure to post in RhoughtfulDailyPost community.

I think that many people have beautiful thoughts and just don't realize that all they have to do is put them on paper. I actually love sharing these thoughts, hoping someday we will all be in that same place. I hope that your day has started out on a positive note and will continue it going forward.

Breathing deep.

Thank you for the LUV, wine and flowers!

Beauty and love to the soul. And this is even more important in long term than than the nourishment for our physical human body, because we are not physical in our true, real nature/existence.

Life can take you extraordinary places

Hopefully it will.

Have a beautiful/wonderful day. All the best to you and to everyone else.

Greetings from Hungary.

Yes and I believe we should be feeding her soul as well. First, I hope that life does take you to an extraordinary place, because everybody should experience that feeling. I sincerely think that there are better things in store for you, just you hadn't reach that place yet. Better things to come!

Very nice and uplifting words and song lyrics to accompany them. Christmas is coming!!!!
Haha it seems way too early to me to start counting down but I am excited for Christmas Markets and they start at the end of November.

I do know that it's early and I agree with you, it is way too too early to start counting down but oh, this year is different than most as we are having difficulty ordering and receiving things in a timely manner. So this is just a friendly reminder for people that may have things that they need to mail out to other people that we should be looking towards that day. I love the Christmas markets also and I am in no rush to get through Christmas. I actually love the season of Joy. I hope you are having a most incredible day!

I totally agree with what you said, "give the soul food" sometimes the soul needs to be soothed by pleasant things, it is in this nature, the geography of nature is very abundant and beautiful can bring peace.
Thank you for sharing the beauty of today 🥰🥰🥰

This song!
This performance!

Have you ever seen P!NK perform live? My daughter and I were fortunate to have seen her perform in St. Louis. Not to get sidetracked from your post; however, I must say P!NK does an unforgettable performance and one I wasn't quite prepared for -- it was like a Las Vega Cirque de Soleil show crossed with a live concert where she did her own phenomenal stunts. I smile every year when photographs and video of the unforgettable P!NK concert pops up on my timeline.

Take time to make memories with your children and loved ones!💕

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I have seen her, the last time in the Capital One Arena during her Beautiful Trauma Tour. True to herself, she gives one of the most unforgettable performances! It is exactly like the Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil show, suspended and performing, showing off her amazing personality and skills. To say that the crowd wasn't overwhelmed with the excitement of those moments would be an understatement. Her performance was amazing and every single piece of it was done by her. I Can Only Imagine how much practice that took and yet it looked like she did it every single day. Her performance? Holy moly! I actually went with both of my daughters and my sister. I have to agree with you and, please, never worry about getting sidetracked on my post. I consider that beautiful memory to be part of it. I love it.

Everybody should take the time to make memories. With your children, with your loved ones, with your friends. Life is too precious to let it slip by unannounced. Have an amazing day and thanks for sharing your memory. 💕

Who doesn't love Christmas 🎅 although folks here are not too big on the spirit of gift giving where I am from 😁 but we more than make up for that with loads and loads of free chops,awesome post.

The gift of giving doesn't cost a thing, in fact. One can give of themselves, helping, being a friend, anything, in fact.

I am not sure what you meant, free chops?

Ooh I meant foods , lots and lots of it. Rather than gifts everyone cooks and send foods to friends and family 🙂 so there is always a lot to eat.

Good morning from here! Thank you so much for your kind and generous words! You always leave a little something to make a person feel good about themselves, it is a gift that you have. I couldn't agree with you more about the beauty of nature, and can honestly say that I don't think I've ever had a bad time when I'm with her. Rain or shine, she is awesome!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are having an amazing day! Keep warm! We just got a cool breeze blow in and I hope it just keeps going!
