Tuesday Tidbits #47

Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!

Words are the twinkle in a star, the moonlight off the water, the sparkle in someone’s eye. Constantly moving and reflecting the world around.

Speaking our minds has always been easiest when there are no true consequences at stake. Speaking our minds when everything is at stake is the true test of what we stand for.

I have often wondered why those who profess any faith that believes in an afterlife would ever feel like something was left unsaid. Even beyond their passing you can speak the words you wished to say and surely, they will hear you. The grave should not mark the final chance to make peace with someone.

If we are pretentious enough to see our own writing as some gift, then it is pressed upon us to use it in a way that is a gift to others.

Creativity is like a carbonated beverage. When it has been poured out and allowed to sit for a while, it can become flat. Every once and a while you need to shake the bottle and get the tickle of fizzy bubbles back.

There is a part of me in my words that I do not recognize. I do not know if it is someone I used to be or someone I hope to become, I just know it is not the me I see in the mirror every day. Writing is my journey to find out who he is.

The easiest way to find your truest words is to speak them as if they will be your last.


Now get out there and write something!

    Brilliant! And I can tell you that what helped me survive in the police department for 30 years was knowing when to speak my truth and when not to (and I’m referring to dealings with the chain of command). Great tidbits my friend, you’re getting better every day, that is why you don’t recognise yourself. Growth is always beneficial.

    These tidbits are so much more. I love each one. The way you describe the moon is beautiful Brad. I particularly love the one about unsaid words. I love what you said about unsaid words. We will get to see our loved ones again. There will be such a spirit of love and we can talked to them and tell them anything. I also related to what you had to say about writing to discover ourselves. I think that is so true with me too. We are complicated creatures and always evolving. Beautifully done. Sending you all kinds of loving thoughts this morning. I pray you stay safe too. We are being so careful as so many people are not here where I call home. So please be safe my friend. Love ❤️ hugs 🤗 and thank you for sharing your beautiful talent. 🤗💕❤️Jonikins

        Oh I am excited as I thought Santa might be keeping the rules of social distancing. I will be looking for that trust me. This was wonderful advice Brad. Thank you for the love and sweet thoughts always they mean so much. Love ❤️ Jonikins.

    The one that hits home for me is the reminder that it’s easy to talk tough when there are no consequences. Real leadership is taking the tough road when you know that it’s the right thing to do despite the fallout.

    I have had this thought myself, I wish I knew what I look like when I write, because when I’m writing, I’m not in the room. I also love the carbonated beverage metaphor. Perhaps I need to be shaken up, I feel like my creativity has fallen flat.
