I love this time of year, especially the coming months.  Those of you who follow along, know of my utterly obsessive interest in doing “October” art forms.  I have begun again, I see it sneaking into my various “art” projects.

What has also claimed some of my attention, is fall allergies… We are really not anywhere near fall season, but the weather has been blowing up the country harvests and mites.. The air must be full of something that is not sitting well with my “system”.

Such is life.  The stock pile of tissue boxes will now start to diminish. and the sinus and allergy pills will come out of hiding to be front and centre in my activity areas.

I have long accepted that having seasonal allergies is part of my life experience. Acceptance, makes it easier to do what needs doing, so that I sail through the season with not too many changes to daily life.

itching palm

My Mother used to say, an itching palm means you will be favoured with $ and/or something pleasant. YAY. if I am not to sleepy from the allergy meds, it will be fun.  Another Mother memory is she said ear lobes can grow longer when you age. Mine have!!  Message to self, you still have lots to learn.


PL calendar day 9       It is interesting because  it’s different

Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently you may learn something from them.  Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “This is the way it has to be,” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.

My husband used to tell me that saving 50% was not a big deal,  he would be more impressed if I learned to save 100% .. Subtle … you think!!  I am still working on this one.

Smiles and waves.. love and love and love.

graduation day!!

Cultivando alegria no curso de inglês.  (English follows)

No dia 05 de julho, finalizei o meu curso de inglês conforme condição da faculdade para iniciar meu curso em setembro (mais detalhes, ler vivência “Minha Jornada no Canadá”). Foram 9 semanas, estudando das 9hs às 16:30 diariamente (exceto fins de semana) o que me deixava bem ocupado.

No início, eu acreditava que seria fácil, pois as pessoas consideravam meu nível de inglês muito bom. No entanto, acabei melhorando muito meu inglês. Percebi que cometia muitos erros e, consequentemente, me esforcei para aprender ao máximo. Durante o curso, fui recebendo prece de Oyashikiri sempre que possível.

Houve momentos que senti pressão e tive algumas preocupações (por exemplo, busca por apartamento para alugar), e isto começou a afetar meu desempenho uma vez que estava mais preocupado com resultado do que aprender. Em resumo, eu estava perdendo a alegria de realizar o curso de inglês. Como peelista, eu notei que era o momento certo para buscar os ensinamentos da PL e praticar o que aprendi ao longo dos anos: ter gratidão pela oportunidade e orar para cultivar entusiasmo e criatividade.

Com essa prática, tudo mudou e passei a realmente sentir alegria no curso, até mesmo meus colegas da turma tinha prazer de estudar comigo. Sem dúvidas, foi uma experiência gratificante, pois pude conhecer pessoas de diferentes países e fazer grandes amigos.

No último dia do curso, estes novos amigos demonstraram muito carinho que até fiquei sem palavras. Ficamos muito próximos por compartilharmos os mesmos desafios e mesmos objetivos, e assim um apoiava o outro.

Eu realmente agradeço à Deus e ao Oshieoyá-Sama. Os ensinamentos da PL são um tesouro que faz total diferença na vida de uma pessoa, como esta vivência.

Agradeço a todos pelo tempo e atenção em ler esta vivência. Que Deus abençoes a todos com alegria e paz.

Bringing joy to everyday classes.

On July 5th, I finished my English course as a condition to start the Algonquin College (please, more details about it, see the previous testimony “My journey to Canada”). I had studied for 9 weeks from 9 am to 4:30 pm every day (except for weekends) and that kept me very busy.

In the beginning, I thought I would handle it easily, once people considered my level of English as very good. Actually, it turned out that I have gotten lots of improvement. I realized that I still had many mistakes and, as a result, I did my best to study and learn as much as I could. During the course, I had been receiving Oyashikiri prayer whenever was possible.

There were times that I felt pressure and some concerns appeared (e.g looking for a place to rent), and that began to affect negatively on my performance since I was worried about only the results instead of the learning process. In summary, I was losing the joy and excitement to go to school. As a PL member, I noticed that it was the right moment put in prqactice PL teachings that I’ve learned over the years: everyday express appreciation for the opportunity and pray to bring joy and be creative.

Doing that was a game-changer because I really enjoyed my time at the language school and even my classmates were so pleased to have me there. Definitely, it was a great experience because I have met many people from other countries and I have made valuable friends.

On my graduation day, these new friends showed so much care for me that I became speechless. In the end, we have created a bond between us because some of them shared the same challenges and the same goals as mine, so we could support each other and we can now help each other.

I do have appreciation for God and Oshieoya Sama. The PL teachings are a treasure that can make a huge difference in one’s life like the testimony above.

Thank you for taking this moment to read this. May God bless us all with joy and peace.


Thank you for sharing Yoshi, (Yoshizumi Terada) have a good day everyone… Enjoy a great start to a brand new week!

days like today, when the heat blankets the body and all else around you.  Moving take concentrated effort. Blah.  Only on such days, do I wish for a small section of water to sit submerged in a shallow area where there is a bit of a shade. and the water is lapping gently all around me, cooling and refreshing.

IMG_20190704_113333_resized_20190704_054308823

of course #1 choice, is to stay inside, where I have air climate control.  No need to think about getting out of the water, getting dry, and finding my way back to the car.  This too shall pass.

Happy week-end everyone.  I trust wherever you are in, you are enjoying a wonderful memory making day.

Oyashikiri
