Day 3, PL Calendar

Instead of worrying o something about it

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “what if this happens/” or “things might end up that way”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

In life if we never attempt something new, we will never know the full extent of our capabilities.  Accomplishments come in many sizes and guises.  Doing is healthy, walking with intent, getting out, exploring, discovering new possibilities.  It is a wonderful and amazing world we live in, human behaviour is what puts a damper on things/situations.

” I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp in focus picture of it in my head”  Jack Nicklaus (golfer)

PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning point

Bom dia!!! Have a great day everyone!

1st day of Peace

multi craft spring

Bom dia…. Greeting:

The Perfect Liberty philosophy, celebrates each 1st day of the month with a Day of Peace ceremony.  Through this ceremony we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to lie as peaceful human beings in our own worlds, which includes our home, school,work and community (PL members’ guide)

Day 1 PL Calendar     Always live with world peace in your heart

Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace without your family, your community and the world around you.  This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.

March speaks of the coming season.  Soon we will be seeing the first signs of spring, crafters are working on spring décor pieces, artists are regrouping their paint colours, writers are developing new themes.  Creativity is being stirred with new excitements,

Look around today for ways to spread your wings. Make today YOUR day  Give your smile away, it will regenerate and pay forward all day.  Peace,

Oyashikiri

Feb 28

IMG_0771Happy Birthday to someone special.  Born on the 28th she just missed being a leap year baby.  How lucky is that.

Birthdays are a celebration of life. No matter how many we have, each one marks a year of experiences and adventures.  Some birthdays are stepping-stones, and others well, they require hiking boots walking sticks and determination.

I welcome every day as an opportunity for kindness.

“You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late” Ralph Waldo Emerson”

#30 of the PL Calendar  Your surroundings are a mirror of your thoughts

When you think \”this s going to be hard” then your situation will become difficult  Instead think “let’s do this!” and face your situation with determination.  Then you will be surprised to se how smoothly things go.

Have a wonderful day every one!  If you are celebrating today, go for it.  Enjoy the day to the fullest.. That said.  We should be doing our best to live every day to the fullest. Happy happy happy energy and vibes to all.

Day 8 PL Calendar

First, accept everything

Life is filled with moments, sometimes happy and at times inconvenient.  It is important to first accept every situation as it occurs and try to accept and understand it for what it is.

Hello, bonjour, bom dia, and jumping jack greetings to each and every one of you.  Another new year is just around the corner,  In China the airports, train stations, all methods of travel really, are homeward bound.  It is exciting, and alive time.  Seeing friends and family sharing huge family meals, and gatherings.

Since my Mother’s passing and for several years before she actually passed, the Chinese New Year  came and went with a happy conversation and a small sparkle.  She was unable to get to the various celebrations held around the city or at the Chinese Embassy. Since I can remember, Chinese New Year has been the BIG turning point for me.  I remember as a child the banquet and feasts, the dragon dances, fire crackers and the many many ritual tasks that were preformed to make sure we started the new year off with gratitude for the past year and much appreciation for the wonderful time ahead.  Good fortune, Prosperity wishes were everywhere.  Red envelopes, special candies,  Happy New Year greetings always included the wish that your life be blessed with good health.

With my husband’s passing last year I wanted more than ever for this transition into another year to be auspicious and filled with the many joys and encouragements we would share to be 100 fold.  I worked on a year of the pig mixed media piece so that I would be actively piecing together elements that would be like a visual firecracker for me.  The lunar new year depending on where you live, is o the 5th. of February.

Ps… my little wheel around the pig.  spins.

Reminder.. due to the storm and the broken water pipe, there will be no service today, but Thanksgiving service is still scheduled for tomorrow evening at 7 pm.

Day 16 of the PL calendar for 2019

Even thought you may have put your best effort into doing something, you still may have made some mistakes.  That is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Be happy, live to spread happiness and joy wherever you go – people will think you mad, but oh how divine it is to share a smile with another being.  A dog wags his tail enthusiastically when you say hello, the cat, rushes to snuggle and purr in your arms. ah there is an unspoken bliss when we are harmonizing.  Try it.  You may like it.

PL Principle 21    will live in true harmony with the world around me.

Bom dia…

Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

oct journal pageHappy September 18th everyone.

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
