Last few days of tranquility, soon there will be outdoor activity with the smell of the fresh new growth, sunlight warm on bare arms and winter pale legs.  When friends post the sights and wonders of their backyards, and places that they can wander and enjoy, it brings me such a joy, such shared happiness.  Friends are what makes our day-to-day so magical.  Each one is like a jewel, with its very own facets and brilliance.  Unlike an object, friends are priceless.

I know I keep repeating how much I appreciate and love you all, can’t help it.  You all bring such richness into my life that I am at a loss to explain why I have been so blessed.

Blessed I am.

Day 22 of the PL Calendar

Appreciate the strengths as well as the shortcomings in others  Even though you may not agree with someone, complaining about it doesnt’ help.  remember, “We are all human,” and accept each person for who they are.

doodle

When the mind is busy – not really doing a lot, wheels are spinning the pen and hand doodle.  shapes, faces, eyes, brows, profile,chin, eye lashes – doodling a me pastime.

PL calendar day 21

Let’s be thankful for everything we have right now.

Now is an accumulation of every moment leading up to it, and everything that continues to progress and develop to become NOW.  Be thankful for everything.

I saw this abandoned beauty and had to stop …. what  happiness for the heart

Signs like this often send my writer’s mind into a fantasy,  a story starts to emerge, and I am lost in thought.  I know now after years of chasing rusted pieces that  inspire tales of bygone years, to park well off the road, where I can sit a spell and enjoy my “wanderings”  I am often asked where do I go, what do I do, why am I always out in my car driving the roads and highways.  I am an explorer, of urban  and country wonders that are most often  not really seen by others, but for me they are rich in dreams, hopes, and evoke mystery and fantasy.

If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it.

Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome.  Your daily accumulation of effort towards your goal shows just how serious you are

Thanksgiving

Bom dia, good morning..

The 21st is drawing near. There is a long week-end coming up.  For those of you celebrating Easter, enjoy your time with family and friends.  It is a special week-end.  In PL we celebrate Thanksgiving on the 21st.

The Thanksgiving service is the 21st of each month.  It is the most important service of the month.  This Sunday will be a very positive and prayer filled day.  Our church here in Ottawa will hold service at 10 a.m. and again at 7 pm.  All are welcome.

Today – PL Calendar day 18

Things have a way of getting more complicated when you procrastinate.  Work on taking immediate action and you will discover many ways to tackle the situation.

Konnichiwa – bom dia!!

What goes around, comes around....  over the years, at one time or another, we have heard this little phrase .. usually it is said and then forgotten.  The Universe is infinite, we never know when, or where, but the time will come when there is “pay back”

PL calendar day 17

Have clear goals and take appropriate actions.

Always begin with a clear idea of what your goals are.  Once you have pinpointed the target for your actions, things will move forward much more smoothly.

With the nicer weather, more and more people are spending time outdoors getting reacquainted with the local parks and trails.  Doing inventory in the garden, what is preparing to reappear, what has been lost or not doing so well.  Each day truly is a new beginning.

determination

korea 1

PL calendar day 15

Live with firm determination,  that “this will turn out for the best” Everything in this world progresses and develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best

Someone once asked me did I ever get tired of being a “Pollyanna”  for those of you unfamiliar with that expression, it usually was used to describe someone who was always cheerful and looking for positives.  I like being happy, and I work towards that goal.  I sometimes miss the mark by a long mile and another times it takes only a smile to bring my happy back.

That does not mean that I don’t feel disappointment, and at times, totally sad and have no choice but to live through my emotion of that moment.  It passes, meanwhile, my body, my mind needed that cleansing.   PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional    Live the moment and move on.

PL Precept #1  Life is Art

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in relativity

PL Principle #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

My love and appreciation to you all.

Oyashikiri

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and others

 

 

Sunday 14th

spring nick v

My thanks to a dear and wonderful friend, who was out with his camera and came across these new blooms.  Spring blossoms are so welcoming, so darn full of determination .. their crisp green and vibrant yellows peeking out after one of Nature’s last snow flings.

Good Morning, Bom Dia!!

PL calendar day 14

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you

Always be mindful of the situation of others, not just your own.  To have a good relationship with those around you, always think of what is important to them too.
