"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Burning questions...

I can honestly say that this hasn't been the best day I've ever had.  I don't think that I've done much, or anything, to embrace my spirit or passion.  I must rectify this as soon as possible, for too many days without passion are just too many days spent alone. 

How about you?


  1. Hmm. Sometimes being alone is a passion.
    I hope to day is better and that you have a wonderful weekend, Jojo!

  2. So true...maybe we should read that every morning as a reminder....hugs to you.

  3. Being alone is something I've learned to appreciate. It makes all interactions all that much more meaningful. Of course if someone wakes me up...well, that's a different story. :)

  4. It is hard to measure up to what we think we are supposed to do.
    This post reminded me of what a good friend in college used to say-
    everybody's doing the best they can.

    You hang on Miss-

  5. Sounds like it's time to take a trip to the local Goodwill or somewhere and find another treasure like your white basket. I can totally identify with how you feel...wish we were closer. Love you. Will call this weekend.

  6. When I am without passion about something, anything, it shows.

  7. I couldn't agree more, Jojo! So on that 'note' this morning I headed out to the garden for two hours! It worked! Got my mind off of things that didn't need to be 'gone over' for the umteenth time.

  8. that is just how I feel lately. I feel like I am missing something. You put your finger on it, it's passion!

  9. Some days are a little more passionate than others.Just get up tomorrow and do one thing that makes you feel hopeful, passionate or happy. As a favorite uncle says...
    Always look at what you can do with love and it usually turns out right.

    Learn to be alone with yourself. It can be a wonderful, relieving interaction with your soul.

  10. I have stretches of days like that...just a burnt out feeling. Usually some rest and stress-free activities help.

    I love solitude and feel my most inspired when I can think in the quiet!

  11. Sounds like my everyday. I do feel like I have lost passion for everything. I will see 5 of my grandchildren this next week. Hopefully that renews my passion and spirit. I too, wish we lived closer. I would love a big hug from you!!! My step daughter that lived near you, her hubby got transferred to Georgia for 3 yrs, so we won't be coming up there any time soon :(
    I hope you have a great and fun holiday!! Kiss that sweet baby girl Maude for me. ILY!

    God Bless~

  12. I must admit, I do love my solitude. It nourishes and revitalizes me.

    But, you're not alone, JoJo ~~ you have us. :-)



  13. What is passion?

    I did get out and weed in the garden for about an hour before I petered out. And after 10 or 11 a.m. it gets too hot for me to last very long.

    But I was proud to at least do that much...


  14. I feel I have no motivation and I believe you put a name to the reason. No passion.

    Now that I'm alone (David lives here, but I'm alone), I have no one to do things for except myself. Maybe I don't feel as if I'm worthy enough of doing it for me.

    Good grief. Where did that come from? I must give this some thought.

    Love you sweetie and we're all just hangin in there.

  15. I love this...I have saved it as a daily reminder!
