I don't seem to have the blogging mojo especially to blog about my life and all the complexities that surround that, well not at the moment. So given The Half Full Glass was started all those years back as I way for me to focus on the good, to see the glass as half full rather than half empty, it seems a good idea to drag it out of mothballs and use it in the way it was intended - as inspiration for me and any others who may drop by from time to time.
One of the things I realised when I started doing the #100HappyDays challenge on FaceBook was that there is something good in every day (well I always knew that) and I was happily popping up the daily bits and pieces that made me feel good, but then some major life events happened to members of my immediate family and it felt wrong for me to be prattling on each and every day about what I was happy about when they were obviously struggling. So I ended up stopping the challenge. But you know what, I sort of missed it.
So with the onset of another Super Moon on the horizon (and I'm hoping that tonight may be cloud free so that I can get some great shot with my new camera) it seemed like the time was right to relaunch this blog. Now I am not promising daily posts, they may only be weekly at best, but taking one day in each week to celebrate all the good things that have happened seems like something I should be doing about now.
If I manage to get some photos, I'll pop back and share them too (the black and white ones below I took a couple of full moons ago with my new camera - as you can see I had trouble holding it so that I got the whole moon in the shot).
So without further ado here are some moon quotes in honour of the glorious celestial being that shares it's orbit with us:
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth - Buddha
When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator - Mahatma Gandhi
Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star - W. Clement Stone
Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars - Les Brown
The day, water, sun, moon, night - I do not have to purchase these things with money - Plautus
And the one I love the most ...
The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It's always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it's a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections - Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me.
Thanks for popping by, I would love you to share your thoughts. Do you love a full moon rising in the dark night sky, or sinking down through the blue of the morning sky as oft seems to happen as much as I do? xxx
