you are you

prosperity, long life, good health

It is only natural that YOU are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. that’s what makes life interesting.

I’ve explained to Hermit (doll in last post) that she is who she is, and not everyone will find her to their liking. She understands, at least she says she does, but a friend noted, she looked sad. So I took another look, I took a good look and sought to see the sadness. But it didn’t come, for when I look at her, I feel joy, and giddy sense of “wow, you really rock” She wears her years of experiences, lost love, forgotten friendships, and numerous disappointments for all to see. She can’t help it, she was made this way. I didn’t try to change her, I simply gave her breaks, bruises and scars the recognition they deserved.

We have all felt pain, longing, sadness, we’ve loved, we’ve cried, and the disappointments have taken their toll. Yet, the reality is they have actually made us stronger and more beautiful/handsome., then ever. For in living life, we learn more about our SELVES.. The me, in I.

Chinese New Year (Rat) is January 25th. In China this celebration of “family” and LIFE… goes on for weeks, when able to, everyone that can, heads home. To you my friends, I wish you all, Long life… prosperity and Good health.. YOU are all part of my family.

obstacles

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things The outcome is in your hands.

It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he’s in love, drunk or running for office.

Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

I wanted to, but life got in the way.

surrounded by activity, yet alone

Over the holidays I read prose, poems and thoughts that expressed, the reality of feeling alone in life. Gave me pause to think about my own life, my memories, and the people who have come and gone over the years.

nights of contemplation

There were days, nights even weeks, when I was lost in a dreamworld of my own. Questioning the emotion of love, of loving being loved, What I have learned over the years, is forget about expectations, they are your journey and no one elses. Two people can stand in the same room side by side, and not see the same things at all.

In PL, we are given the tools to realize that the person we have to love is ourselves, only in knowing who we are, and our needs can we share them with someone else. Unconditional love is not easy. But I believe it is attainable. To know sadness, you have had to know happiness. Being human is not a flaw, it is a blessing. To experience life, we have to let go and welcome new energy.

Everyone wishes to be happy and lead a happy life. In PL we can experience true joy and happiness when we are able to freely express our unique individuality )Makoto) in each moment of our lives/

Use what you need to use without hesitation. Your things, your money, your knowledge, and your strengths are all a part of you. Utilize them to their fullest potential without hesitation.

Do things in Moderation. Whenever you overdo something, you will lose balance in your life. Express yourself appropriately without being overly attached or detached.

FYI the Chinese New Year this coming lunar year will fall on January 25th. For many the close proximity of the two new year celebrations will mean a lot of activity and energy. The Chinese new year is focused very much on “family”. Leading up to this important time of year, we “clean” our “homes”, physically and mentally.

For those familiar with the I Ching. Hexagon 58 Tui the top three lines mirror the bottom ones. broken line, followed by two unbroken lines.

Joy and Harmony! No doubt. Confidence. No regrets. Advancement. Happiness! Faith in the temporary causes disillusionment. Attraction!

The hidden door

If not for the little touch of red on the latch, I would have missed this door. I did include this door in another blog it was among other doors, and thought it deserved a feature of its own.

There are days when I want to blend in and disappear. Yes it happens to me, and I suspect each one of us at some time has had that feeling.. Where you just want the world to keep rolling along, so you can catch your breath, or simply veg.

Instead of worrying do something about it. It doesn’t help to over think situations such as “what if this happens?” or “Things might up that way” Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Sine my husband’s passing have found it very difficult to do some of the things that need doing. example. Going upstairs to his offices and going through paperwork. Clearing out furniture and objects has not been a problem, yet for some reason, the filing cabinets have been like the door above, I don’t seem them. If I do, I walk right by.

There are times in life, when we have to “see” the issue, and then do something about it. In my case I have asked for help. And today, I will go to church and pray, giving thanks for my blessings, and express my gratitude that I have friends to turn to, and of course, I KNOW that PL Precept # 11 Always be with God. God is always with me.

A friend passed on the other day, massive stroke, one day he was walking in the sunshine between tall trees on one of his favourite walking trails with a friend, the next day he was gone. He was liked by his friends because he always said, he was poor in material things, but had an abundance of riches spiritually and in his friendships. Caring, gentle and understanding, he will be missed by all who knew him.

Another Saturday =^_^=

How many Saturdays can one have in a week. Obviously I can. When you are retired anything is possible.

Look at the marvelous day we had. The colour palette was subtle and vibrant at the same time. Truly amazing to be out in the majesty of the day.

Today being the 21st of the month we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our PL service at 7 PM. Today’s calendar message..

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.

Oyashikiri

Please take a moment in silent prayer today for loved ones who have done their time on earth, and are now going “home”…. Thank you.
