Think acrosticRecently I was drawn to this T.H.I. N.K. acrostic that I saw on Facebook. The image posted was white on black. It did not seem to be appropriate to take that image, so I created another graphic.

I also did a Google search to see if there was someone to whom this is attributed. I could not find an original author.

Given our is focus now on relationships, I felt it too rich not to include this powerful/empowering suggestions/reminders in Treasure Your Life Now. The questions are such perfect reminders to pause and ask ourselves before launching into complaints, in particular, with those with whom you are close or anyone else, with whom you are interacting.

This issue marks the 600 issue of Picture to Ponder ezine!!! It is the second issue with the more pro-active Treasure Your Life Now brand. If you missed it last week, I stated that Treasuring our lives has actually been one of the indirect, unexpressed bottom line premises of Picture to Ponder over these past 8 years. So it seems quite a fitting transition.

One of the most frequent themes relates to the many different perceptions people may have on the same view. There often is no right or wrong, other than one person sometimes being “righteous” about his or her point of view.

As an example, and to stay focused, I’m featuring only photo this week. It popped out for me with its quick, illustrative “story.” This photograph was first featured in Issue 115 published in June 2005.

This issue marks the 599th Picture to Ponder ezine!!! As I’ve been stating in the past few issues, I am transitioning title and branding from Picture to Ponder to the more pro-active Treasure Your Life Now. Treasuring our lives has actually been one of the indirect, unexpressed bottom line premises of Picture to Ponder over these past 8 years. So it seems quite fitting.

There are times when we may perceive life’s journey as a series of bumps in the road. As we go through changes, we have choices. We can focus on what is behind us, the bumps directly in front of us, or that which is beyond. [click to continue…]

Full Moon

Tomorrow night, May 6 at 11:34 PM EDT will be the largest full moon of 2012. Scientific explanation of and a brief very interesting video, by Science of NASA, on this “supermoon” can be found on the Space.com site, FULL MOON page. Be sure to scroll down that page to see the video.

Thinking about, and observing, the moon in both the light and dark skies over the past few days made me very aware of light and shadows. So when I came upon Picture to Ponder Volume 6 – Issue 19, it seemed to be perfect to revise for today. It is based on my oftentimes repeated observations, “where there are shadows, there is light. In order to have shadows we MUST have light.”

We can most definitely look at the following through the filters of happenings in our relationships.
