Thursday doors 4.25.19

Thursday doors, how much I have missed being able to participate in this series.  My hankering for a door brought me to my desk to look through my photos

An open doorway to another time and place?  A place tended and serene.

A romantic hide-a-way where one can laze the day away.  In this one, fall is in the air, and the weather holds that rustic charm of warm colours and textured wood grains.

To so many of us, who chase the many varied and interesting doors, and doorways.  They are passages to hidden or unknown “adventure”  There is always a story to be found when one enters through a new door.

Garden gates are another temptation. How many of us have had wonderful conversation in a nursery or greenspace over the admiration of floral and fauna.

We need only look around at all the different ways we use and display doorways, archways, gateways.  They are the subject of stories, and many are the central focus in a photo-story.  To the door chaser, they are a work of art,  not in themselves, but their presentation.

 

I know that spring is outside t.he door, but my mood this morning appears to be mellow. I am drawn to fall colours, and the charm I’ve found in my library of photos that I have collected.

When we wake up in the morning, we get to decide which will be the doorway we will use to begin the day.

The choice is ours.

PL calendar, day 25

Pay Careful attention without overly straining yourself or taking things too lightly.

Having the right amount of tension in your life allows you to notice many things, and that  will help you to better express yourself.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”.  Mary Robinson.

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.
