22 nd

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.

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.

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.

PL Precept #10  Love yourself and others

Happy start to another day!  It is Thursday, the week has flown by.  Already we are celebrating the 11th of the month.  Ancestors Day.

PL calendar day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.  Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are.  I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.

When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.

details

Good morning, Bom Dia – Saturday

Making your way through the maze of details that need attending after an accident of a vehicle.

Insurance, claims, adjusters, customer service, sales, research collecting data, processing data, yada yada yada.

It is not a disaster, it is an opportunity for me to review my performance abilities, and use my creativity to unravel and get through the experience, one step at a time. Most important is that I do my best to meditate on what I can do differently, or what I need to work harder on to improve my skills/tools so that it doesn’t happen again.

PL calendar – day 6

Past, present, or future, always remember to be sincere and honest (to one’s self)

At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself.  at each moment in time, there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation to your position or status.

PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning point

PL Precept # 17 Grasp what is most essential

PL calendar day 4.

Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others

Always be true to yourself in your words and actions.  Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.

I came across the above photo this morning.  I enjoyed revisiting it, so I am sharing it with you. Some expressions of mine.. I enjoy at the time, they are calming and relaxing when I am working with them…  then… fickle as I am..  I move on.  Each step leads to another.  So maybe not fickle, maybe it is more, I let go and go forward.  I just finished several small requests for greeting cards, I enjoy doing them,  I sit myself down, focus on project cards.  When that is done, I put the card making supplies away and return to my art journals.

Sage sentiment.  Follow your heart while thinking of the happiness of others.

I know it is impossible to be happy and full of glee 24/7, but I  do so enjoy thinking of you all living in happy states of mind..  Productivity, creativity and accomplishments filling your days with rewarding moments of pure satisfaction.  Positive and loving energy to all.   Share a smile today!

Afternoon greetings, boa tarde!

When I got up this morning, I felt rested after a good night’s sleep so I decided I would do a few errands close to home.  I knew or should I say hoped that I would hear from the adjustor or the dealer about my car. At nine I prepared to leave expecting to be back in a couple of hours tops.

The day was clear, a little overcast, and not too cold.  As I prepared to leave, I decided to change my footwear, from sturdy walking shoes to my gum boots.  ??? why I had no idea, since I had no plans to be out of the city.  But.. went with my instinct and put on my Bogs.  They are comfortable after all.

All good plans and planning were for naught. Circumstances were such that instead of coming home, the adjustor called me, when I was less than 10 minutes from my street.  The towing company would not release my car without my authorization.  Even though I had given them that previously, it was not enough, they wanted me to sign a release form because I had personal items in my car.

The pound as they call it, was WAY out.  Not a little out, but a long way out.  When I finally got there, it was all mud, not just a little mud, but deep rutted thick squishy wet mud that sucked anything that dared enter the grounds. YAY THANK YOU GOD!!! I was wearing my boots.

In PL we are reminded over and over, to trust in that inner voice,  The Universe works in special ways.  I drove home with gratitude and appreciation that with time my faith has devloped and I believe.. PL Precept # 11 Always be with God,

Yes it was a frustrating at times, but I did it, I got what was needed done.  Thank you thank you thank you, to all of you who care and watch out for me.  I appreciate you all.
